Well… July certainly hasn't been any less hectic than June was. Packing up the house, cross country road trip, new job, unpacking the house, two dented cars, some broken furniture — this month just flew by with all the fun stuff! Yet somehow I managed to pump out a few articles despite all the craziness. Things are finally starting to settle down and I actually got to edit some photos last night. It feels good to be getting back in the swing of things. And with that, here are my favorite July articles.
