Ah, August! The driest month of the year where I live. Besides one tiny little heat wave, the weather has been very nice indeed.
Things that have been making me happy this month include:
What became my "summer project", watching all 7 seasons of Bones so that I could pick up with the rest of the world when season 8 begins on September 17. It is really a very good show.
The monotony of summer days broken up by Camryn's week at summer camp and both kids' week-long trip to their grandparents' house in Oregon.
Related to the above is #kidvaction! Mark and I got our very first parenting vacation in 12
Not waiting til the last minute to buy school supplies.
Conquering a fear by going shooting. It was actually kind of empowering.
Photos, photos, photos!

And starting tomorrow, I will be participating in Adopt A Pantry which is being organized by the mastermind behind Run Blog Give, Jamie at Chosen Chaos. We are encouraging ourselves and YOU to keep track of the days we exercise and donate to local food banks from September 1 - Novermber 17, just in time for Thanksgiving donations. You know how I feel about feeding the hungry, so I am HAPPILY all over this!
Your turn! What's your August HAPPY?
(Come back on Tuesday the 4th for September's Did You Know? link-up!)
