Being from the North, I’m happy to see summer well and good on its way. I have some fun news to announce in the near future, and I don’t want you to miss it when it comes. If you’re not already part of my facebook group, I’d love to see you there! I’ll be making my announcement there first. Facebook has recently defaulted notifications to “highlights” so you’ll want to make sure you manage your notification to mark it as “all posts.” I’ve included screenshots to show you how.
