What a busy end-of-school-year season! I’m looking forward to a low-key summer. Maybe you are too? But first, my son is graduating from elementary school and my daughter is graduating from middle school. I’m incredibly proud of them for their hard work, perseverance, humor and most of all, their kindness.


I posted a lot this week on Beyond The Brochure’s Facebook Page, so if you’re not following on Facebook, you might be missing stuff I don’t post here on the blog.

Here are a few items:
