Ever feel ridiculously happy over something that is reeeaaallllly simple? Just me? great.
I am giddy that I actually figured out how to put a picture with a link in my sidebar. Yes. GIDDY. I know, I know... It's simple, right?

I know that, come August, I will be anxious for them to return to school. At least, a little bit. But, until then? I am so thrilled that school is almost out!!!
