6 posts you didn’t read but should have

I love holiday weeks!  We have spent the week in Missouri with my parents and thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the Fourth with them.  We’ve been eating homemade ice cream, laughing at the dogs playing (a Bichon and a Basset Hound – it’s really funny!), and playing Uno.  Not a lot of time for blog reading, ya know?

Perhaps you haven’t had as much time for checking your Reader or visiting links on Twitter either.  This might help! Here are a few posts you didn’t read but should have.
