My goodness, I have not been a very consistent blogger this summer. It's not because I've been off galavanting on vacation (I wish) but I've just been incredibly busy. I've had a pretty big life change (sorry for the teaser, but it deserves a full post later) and so the blog got put on the wayside.
So here's a round up of just what I've been up to. And don't forget to follow me on Twitter (RetroLaurie) or Instagram (RetroReporter) if you'd like more frequent updates.
The most significant thing that happened in July was the passing of my Grandpa Marchant. He's my first grandparent to ever pass away, and although it wasn't a shock, it still leaves a void. I miss him very much, and I do want to write a post about him - I just have to figure out what I want to say.

Of course, I did enjoy quite a bit of sunshine as well (I have sunburns that can attest to that.
Garret celebrated his 24th birthday and I turned 22:
To celebrate my birthday, Miss Bee and I went to Fort Edmonton Park. (If you remember, I did that last year for my birthday too!)
I used my birthday money to register for sewing lessons in October. I am beyond excited, and can finally get into The Complete Book of Sewing Bee bought me eons ago.
