August Holidays & July Wrap Up 2017

August, the time of back to school sales and relentless heat, is among us. With it comes the newest edition of monthly holidays!

This month I am looking forward to packing up my life and moving in to college. Fun fact: I really enjoy packing! It’s like a puzzle, trying to make sure you have everything you need and fit it all together. July was a busy month with my graduation party, a week spent dog/house sitting, and the Dysautonomia International conference!

In July I published five blog posts:

  1. Disney Travels Part Three: Disney Springs & Flying Home!
  2. My College Orientation Experience
  3. 30 College Orientation Tips
  4. One Year Blogging Anniversary
  5. 5 Things That Happened at the Dysautonomia International Conference 2017
