is it August already?

On Saturday I went to the wedding of the girl who lived across the street from me. Beautiful. There are pictures, but I haven't put them online.

I'm re-reading the Narnia books, though I'm saving The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for last, since I read it in the last few years. And now that Harry Potter mania is gone, I am VERY eagerly awaiting Robert Jordan's Knife of Dreams in October. Please, come soon!
