Throwback, Awaiting August

A state fair staple, funnel cake.

August means the last full month of summer and two full weeks of state fair celebration. Ever since we moved to Missouri, my family and I would attend the state fair each year building a tradition. About a decade ago when my sister graduated from high school (geez, I feel old now) the tradition faded into a rare appearance at the fair.

I’m travelling home for a few weeks next month and would love to fit in a visit to the fair. Besides the must haves of funnel cake, corn dogs, and weird things deep fried, I like visiting the state fair to reminisce the good old days.

Year One

celebrating

I recently announced a milestone for myself and this blog. I have been on WP for a whole year now (and I’m nearly halfway through 2015 and still reaching my goal of updating daily). Today I bought myself a gift to celebrate the occasion. It is quite fitting since the traditional way to honor an anniversary in the first year is paper.

Happy Anniversary, Blog!
…or pencils.

Today was a good day and now I am off to color.
