Coffee and Conversation #146 – Where’s Your “happy place?”

Good morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #146!

I'm at my "happy place" this week with my family! Where's YOURS?

I’m not trying to make you jealous…

But this week I’m in my “happy place” with a bunch of people I love (aka “my family”)!

This was kind of a last-minute, grab-the-last-cheap-week-before-the-summer-prices-kick-in, we-gotta-get-outta-Dodge, hubby-NEEDS-some-time-off type of deal…

With that in mind, I just thought I’d share some recent posts on the blog that you might be interested in, and next week we’ll get back to features, ok?

Readers, please do me a favor and make sure you visit some of the blogs you see here this week! These writers put much of their heart and soul into these posts, and since I’m not here to feature any of them…well, I just KNOW they’ll appreciate some extra special love <3! Thanks in advance…

    Though I love spending time with friends, my happiest place in the Summer in lounging on the screened porch with just my hubby and the dogs. The introvert part of me is refreshed there.
    Thanks for the party ladies and have a great weekend.
