      It likely was my dad instilling my love for poetry and words because he kept sharing these kind of sayings. So if the sky’s taking a pink hue over Australia it might be the angels baking Anzac biscuits ;).

    Thank you for the shout out and link, Miss Polkadot! I was just talking to a friend yesterday about how fast time seems to be flying this year. It’s hard to believe it’s almost July, and that makes me really sad because it means summer (even though it technically just started) is slipping through my fingers!
