Five Things I’m Making in July

Okay, I know I say this, like, every month, but I cannot believe it is July.  I remember being four or five years old and feeling like time moved sooooooo slowly, and it really just gets crazy faster as you’re an adult.  But at the same time, it feels like ages ago that we made
