I'm not really a summer person. I am a fall person. So it is exciting to me to see how close we now are to September 1st! That is my extra happy time of year with a giddy feeling that lasts all the way through December. There is just a little bit of a sparkle to the whole world during those months.

We just celebrated our 25th anniversary in July and are making plans to go to NYC this fall! Our church (my husband is a pastor) has very kindly given us a gift to help with our travel expenses.

I've been reading/looking/asking for ideas while we are there and besides all the sights to see, I am definitely going to do this:
A "You've Got Mail" walking tour. Yes, really!
Duane from the blog, Cottage in the Oaks, has been a treasure trove of resources for me in planning this trip. She is amazing!
Happy August to you and if you have any NYC tips to share, please let me know!
