No, I was out of town and just got back tonight. Got lost in Death Valley unfortunately so it took me 3 more hours to get back than I had originally planned :/

But the new meeting is up! Sorry for the delay!

Hi All! If you've been keeping up with my blog you've probably guessed that the wedding planning has completely taken over my life at this point and that's why I have been so, SO late with the last discussion. I'm so sorry for the huge delay, but in less than two weeks I'll be a married lady and all this wedding madness will be behind me! So, I will be back in full-force after Labor Day weekend with the final discussion for The Disappearing Spoon and then we can all vote on a new book to read for the fall (perhaps something less technical this time ;) ). Until then have an amazing rest of your summer!!
