Hello, July

Well hello, July! How quickly you showed up. 




After a bit of a rocky ending to the month of June, I hope July is good to me.
Let's see what's in store so far (or at least planned?):

1. One full month of no school for the kiddos. Do we get to sleep in?

2. Fourth of July celebrations. Fireworks, anyone?


This shot is from last year, and I hope to capture one or two shots from this year's fireworks too. Please remember, I'm just a beginner when it comes to photography!

3. Take me to the beach! I hope to visit the beach at least one more time this month.



4. More summer sunsets (and an attempt at taking good pictures of them).



5. Working on photography (meaning translates literally into: taking pictures of everything). And working on the blog. I've got a few posts that still haven't been published (that definitely need to be). I'm also still not finished with my ever-so-slow blog makeover, so I'd like to work on that some more.



And here's a treasury collection for upcoming Independence Day. It's my first treasury in quite a long time. Click the image to view it in Etsy. =0)

Linking up with Aquariann.


What's in store for YOUR July?

sounds like some solid plans!I have 2 weeks of professional development so that means I'll be stuck working for 2 weeks but I do get about 2.5 weeks off so that also means I can chill at home and make things or go swimming. Pretty much I plan to relax as much as possible.

Aren't summer sunsets the prettiest?? I just caught one last night. Beautiful shades of pink and orange! We just moved to a new state so July will be spent getting to know our neighbors and the area!

Lovely shots! Looks like you have all your plans in place! For me I am looking forward to July, hopefully I'll have my first sale after re-opening, also preparing for CIJ!
Maybe do some chilling out too, last month I was bit too busy, love lazy summers:)

Are those a succulent plant in your photo?

I might as well say my plans is to be at work more then I want this summer. We weren't given any vacation time... and because of a new computer system, we will be working overtime.. Not impressed but that is what happens..

I'm with you: Let's hope for 30 more days of (fingers crossed) sleeping in and a few more beach days! I'd also like to visit the zoo and maayyyybe break out the sewing machine. Cuz I have so much time on my hands with twin toddlers and a super-social preteen ;)

Just spent a week at the beach and loved it. However, it is getting pretty warm in the Carolinas.

I'm taking a blogging hiatus from blogging soon for a break but haven't had plans for what I'll do with my blog once I get back.

Great July activities! Mine will be boring, I think :)

We have a few things planned. Our daughter has swimming lessons for the next two weeks, then we've been invited to my brother's place. Summertime is fun time.

Sounds like a lovely month! I'm working more than I'd hoped, but a beach day would be lovely. Your pictures are beautiful!

I love the fireworks photo. And I would so like to be on that beach. I got the urge to walk on a beach today, but they all had way too many people on them. Maybe another day.
I found you on the etsy blog team.
