If you're a yard sale/garage sale/flea market enthusiast, this is probably your favorite month of the year.  After all, the World's Longest Yard Sale is August 5-8 and just a few days later on August 14 you can celebrate National Garage Sale Day!  (Yes, you read that right.  There is actually an official World's Longest Yard Sale!  Over 675 miles of sales stretching from Michigan to Alabama along US Highway 127.)

An Elegant Wedding Reception
A few months ago I attended a wedding reception for an old friend of mine.
