A Sentence A Day ~July 2017

The summer months are always the hardest to do journal writing. My days are filled with trainings for my day job and the weekends are busy with traveling and fun stuff.  I did manage to complete the journal, but to be honest, I often doubled up on the writing for some of the days!
