Monthly Update: September 2014

“Remember that time when we had websites?” Josh joked a few minutes ago.

So here we are in Savannah, Georgia, taking a break from everything else for a few hours to sit at our laptops so we can each write a post. And since we’re already two weeks into October, I figured my update from last month is long overdue.

I spent just over three weeks in England, and very few of my days were sunny and warm. When it wasn’t raining, it was hailing, and when I left the country at the end of May, the weathermen were still predicting snow for the following week.
