These nine books total 2,946 pages; the most I've read in one month so far this year.

To be honest, I'm so surprised I read this much throughout June! June is never a big month for me to be reading, but somehow it was this year! I felt like the majority of these books were super, super amazing, so they were done in no time!

My favorite book this month is a tie between The Weight of Silence and These Things Hidden. Seriously, if you have not yet read them, get to your local bookstore or download them to your e-reader now! :)

I really only have four assignments left and an exam. Ideally, I would be working ahead...yet my motivation seems to have run away recently. My class is over July 26th, which is good because August in higher ed is the month from hell. It'll be nice to be able to focus on work for a month before classes start again.

I haven't done a lot of crafts lately, as I've obviously spent all my time reading. However, I did cut out fabric for a pattern this past weekend. Hopefully I'll get to sewing on it soon!

June was a slower month for travel. The only trip I made was to the Capital city, Bismarck, for a pre-marriage seminar for the Church. It was nice to have some time at home to relax. June's travel plans are crazy, though! I will be going to B-town (hometown) to do some wedding planning around the 4th. The next weekend, I'll be in Wisconsin with Matt's family. The weekend after that, I visit Cleveland for a work conference. I get back from that on a Sunday, and on Monday at 6:30 I leave for Chicago for another work conference. Crazy, huh? I feel like I'm getting to see the entire midwest in one summer...

Wedding planning is underway! We're working on our website, and have ordered Save the Dates. Woo hoo!

Ugh, I'm not really looking forward to the busy month of July, but I'll make the best of it, as it's fast approaching!
