This is my time of year. This is the time of year that I really, truly thrive. I live for heat, humidity, sweating, sunshine...all of it and then some.

Happy Friday! Today marks the end of a testing season and start of a fun season. Bring it on. I am a mom of a ten year old who has to take standardized tests each year.
