Sarah never fails to share beautiful photos of France just about the time that I stop talking about my semester abroad every single day. Her photos of Eze in the South of France are no exception. I love the mix of Italian and Mediterranean influence on the French villages, the pastel buildings and even climbing stairs everywhere. 

And now let's hop across the channel to England and take a tour of the Kensington gardens with Sara (no h) a former Texan who is now living and studying in Bristol. Jealous? Yeah, me too.

How cute is Elizabeth's gold leaf necklace

Jess has some wonderful tips for beginner bloggers (and those of us who might need a reminder).

At a loss for what to write about in August? Kenzie has kindly put together another month of writing prompts. Pick and choose which ones interest you. And maybe save the rest for a rainy day when you have severe writer's block and just need to put fingers to keyboard and type. 

I just printed this print out to frame it. Despite my printing/typography class in college, I still had trouble asking which size I wanted at Office Depot. Now I'm off to find an 11x17 frame instead of 11x14. Is 11x17 even a standard frame size??

A lovely August desktop wallpaper from the talented ladies of Maiedae. 

To wrap this on how to fight like a real housewife from Katie, a girl after my own heart. Bonus points if you flip a table or are able to throw a prosthetic leg (doesn't even have to be yours) across the room.
