The title lies because while I am writing this, it is still June. Oh well. We are now officially halfway through 2019. Where is this year going.
Anyway, it’s time for another monthly recap! 😀 Let’s get started.
Oh wait, I just remembered, I will be going on a tiny hiatus. *gasp* Next week, I have a post scheduled for something I had previously committed myself to, but the week after that, there will be no post. Then hopefully, the next Monday I’ll have a book review or something, but I might skip that too? We’ll see. All of this is because I’m going camping this week and then over to the East Coast with my Grandma for about ten days!! Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know what was happening! 😉
