I've been a busy bee this summer. It's been fun. I've loved the interaction with all of you and the cool new things I've gotten to do. Our family has had fun travels and are enjoying our new house.

I'm going to do something that feels even more risky to me than putting videos of myself in public. I'm going to take a week off!

Here's to sleeping in!
See you in a week!
