A Memorable Month…

4:30 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

I want to let you all know how much I appreciate each of YOU. Thank you for being so patient with me during the month of July. I had a very full month due to a very close friend’s bachelorette party/vaca and a long (21 day!) family vacation to spend time with extended family in both Cape Cod, MA and a small town in Texas (anyone know where Borger is? :) ).

I have received emails over the last couple of weeks asking about the videos and when they will return. Well, stay tuned because I will be back in action in the coming weeks. And I just want to say again – thanks for being so patient with me this summer. It was wonderful getting to spend time with loved ones and create some pretty incredible memories.

Over the last few weeks I’ve gotten to…

Take selfies with the kiddos while traveling (yep – people think we’re weird! ;) )

Screen Shot 2014-08-03 at 1.16.14 PMWatch my sweet little girl, Piper, get super creative on the plane. To entertain herself, she used the free pretzels they hand out to make her name. Doesn’t that rock?

Take it all in. The ocean, the cousins playing together, the memories being created…

Spend lots of quality time with my dad! He’s pretty cool! ;)

Find time to get some work in…

Eat lots of good food – thanks, Lee! :D

Watch the kiddos enjoy every single minute (well, most minutes ;) ) that they’ve gotten to be together with their cousins…

Spend time with my favorite person in the Whole Wide World…

    Love the vacation pics! It is a coincidence that I too went on a 21 vacation in July to see family in my home country Hungary. A vacation like this really recharges your batteries for the rest of the year.

  • theladyprefers2review says:

    That sounds like an amazing trip! I agree with you, I grew up right outside of Atlantic City, in Margate, and whenever I stand by the ocean, I always have to take a few moments to take it all in, its just so awesome!

  • Jeni says:

    Oh wow! Are you from Massachusetts? You weren’t too far from me. I’m just north of Boston in Haverhill, MA. Been reading your blog for a while now. Thank you for the great money saving deals and tips! Some of the best deals I found came directly from your site. -Jeni

  • nancy says:

    What you did is far more important than any great deal I could ever imagine. The loved ones in our lives are the people that truly matter. Thanks for sharing part of your personal life with us. As we all know, the deals will always be there but when you have the opportunity to capture precious memories with loved ones, you have to do it…it is what REALLY matters.

  • Pat says:

    You deserve it. Life is all about spending time with our families and friends. In to short of a time opportunities are gone and can we can never get them back. Life is to short not to enjoy time with our families and friends. Welcome back. We all missed you.

  • Voahangy Rasetarinera says:
