Starbucks plans to eliminate single-use straws in the next few years. I need to remember to take our reusable coffee and frappuccino cups when we have our weekly Starbucks trip after flute lessons.

I took my daughter to a funeral viewing for her friend’s father yesterday. He died of cancer. The girl is the same age as my own daughter. She was so gracious and sweet, well-spoken, mature beyond her years.
It’s hard to believe that the kids will be going back to school soon. The stores already have aisles of crayons, glue, and notebooks. They’re starting to carry more jeans and fall type clothes. While it’ll still be warm, summer for our family is quickly coming to an end.

I currently have Adeline, Azure, Bianka, Gracie, Monroe, Sariah, Scarlett, and Sloan. Also, I carry leggings in S/M, L/XL, and Tween. Both in regular and Disney.
