Monthly Recap: August 2014

august recap 
The end of August means that the fall season is just around the corner!  We always look forward to fall.  Just the other day my wife and I were talking about how fall is our favorite season.  Temperatures cool down to a tolerable level, football season kicks off (we're both big football fans), and we start making holiday plans.  Fall is always a great time of year in our home.  :)
  Before we get carried away looking forward, let's take a moment to look back.  August was a busy month for us in our personal lives, which caused us to get a little off track with our posting schedule (thanks for understanding by the way), but we were still able to post a lot of new content to the blog this month.  Check it out!
