Just a quick note that I'll be taking a brief break from the blog this week! Now, onto what happened in July!
We celebrated an early 4th of July at my mom's house - my sister, aunt, uncle, and a couple of my cousins and their families came, too, so it was a full house! The weather was a little cooler, which was nice, and we all had fun catching up, playing cornhole, and watching the kids play some water games.
My sister had a delayed birthday/pool party for her daughter (our niece), Luna. Her birthday is in January, so it definitely wasn't a great time to have everyone over. She was able to have it outside now, so everyone was able to spread out and the kids (and my stepbrothers!) enjoyed the pool.
I attended my second bookish event of the year when I watched Penny Reid on Amazon Live. I've only read a couple of Penny's books, but I have a couple more on my Kindle and I just think she's a really fun and smart author and person. I love this bookish world she's created and how she's expanded it to allow other authors put their spins on it. Smartypants Romance is a really cool publishing vehicle. The live event was a lot of fun, as Penny was interviewed about her newest release and viewers could submit questions and comments. She even shared some top-secret info!
Lastly, we went to our local movie theater to see Black Widow - it was the first time we were in a movie theater this year! The movie was great, and it was nice to be able to see a Marvel movie on the big screen again!
