Summer Vacation – Take Me Away Recap (June)

Happy July everyone!  Many of you are probably on summer vacation this week so thanks for taking the time to stop by.  Our family just spent a few days at the Jersey Shore and thankfully had perfect weather.   After a rainy spring, we are finally enjoying gorgeous weather in the northeast.  Sure, it’s becoming hot and humid but I can’t complain!

(Not our beach house, by the way…)

Last month we had another great turnout at our June Take Me Away Travel Link Party.  Everyone always links up so many beautiful places and now my bucket list is growing longer and longer!  Usually, I post the previous month’s recap before the next party but that didn’t exactly happen this month…ooops!  Obviously, the lazy days of summer vacation have hit my home!

Anyway, let’s take a look at the highlights from the June party…
