I’m Back…

Posted on August 11, 2012 in News

I’m back after several wonderful weeks of summer vacation. Here are a few snaps of where I have been and what I have been doing. I am happy to be back to work (love seeing the colorful rows of school supplies in all the stores), but had a great time sleeping in, taking road trips, and hanging out with my family.

What did you do?
