Hi friends! I hope August is treating you well so far! As per usual, the months feel like they are flying by! And I don’t want them too!
July went especially fast for us! I think with the 4th of July and a couple of small trips we took (and working busily in between) we were so active that the month was over before we knew it!
Where did we go in July you ask?
Our first trip was a weekend in Asheville, NC. Mr. Bingley had a wedding to play for and we decided to make a weekend out of it. Mr. Bingley played at this gorgeous venue!
We did have some rain, but that made for some cool “misty mountain” moments.
But after a killer breakfast (we ate breakfast at practically every meal in Asheville, have many recs!) we drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway before heading home.
On our second trip, we went for a very short visit to Bucaramanga, Colombia to spend a couple days with Mr. Bingley’s parents.
Since Mr. Bingley still had to take calls and work while we were there, we didn’t get to do our usual “deportes extremos” (extreme sports). But we did enjoy the usual great food, tropical climate, and way of life there.
My shirt says it all – Avocado-holic!
What travels have you taken this summer? Any fun trips you have coming up?
Want to know what Austenesque fun I’m getting into this month?

~ TO REVIEW ~
~ TO READ AND REVIEW ~
As you might remember, I have this tradition of reading and reviewing a Georgette Heyer book around our birthdays (yep! Ms. Heyer and I share the same birthday – August 16th!!) This year I asked for help picking out which book I would read on Instagram and Facebook and Black Sheep was the most recommended out of all the books I own (and haven’t read!)
Many have expressed an interest in reading (or rereading) Black Sheep with me this month, so if you’d like to join in, please feel free to! I’m planning on having a discussion post on August 15th and sharing my review on August 16th!
