Dear Summer: I know you gon' miss me.


Summer 2012 was the last summer of my 20s…and I definitely got it IN!  So today’s post will recap the highlights of the summer for me.

The Chicagoland area had a rather mild winter and I have no idea what happened to Spring.  Since Summer was around for about 6 months, we’re gonna start with April.
