Cottage Again?

I am off to the cottage again. I know it feels like I was just there. But summer is almost over, and we wanted to squeeze in one more trip before the sun is gone. I know its been a slow week in terms of reading but I’m halfway through Foxcatcher, and I plan to do…

Book Review: Before Midnight

Iced Green Tea Lemonade

I absolutely love Starbucks’ Iced Green Tea Lemonade, I can’t get enough of it, especially now during summer.
