Heyaaa! July here again, and I think this is the closest that I've posted two things here on my blog in a LONGGG time (visit my previous post HERE). I know, I'm such a failure at blogging! Well, good news is that I'm getting back on track :)

Anyway, I'm going to get straight to the point of this post. So many of you probably don't know that I actually have a Facebook, Tumblr, and a Twitter page, all of which you should go and take a look at. The reason I'm telling you this is because lately, I've been feeling like my blog is going rapidly down the hill as I don't get near as many views or comments as I used to, so I made these pages in order to promote my blog and get new viewers while reminding old ones to come for a visit.
I know that sounds terrible, like I'm only blogging for attention, but blogging is honestly one of my favorite things. To me, it's very therapeutic to put my thoughts and parts of my life out there and have people to talk with about it. Some of my greatest friends are people who I met through blogging! I love having discussions with my readers and getting to know about them as well, so I want to get my blog up and running again.
That being said, I need your help to do it! I want to invite you to visit my various pages and share them with your friends or viewers so that this blog becomes a hopping place once again! And, I always follow/like back :)

  • Give MY PAGE a like on Facebook, and even add me as a friend if you're feeling brave. You'll find out when I have a new post us up and see other great stuff I post. Facebook is also a great way to chat with me!

  • Follow me on TWITTER to be in the know when I have a new blog post, get brief updates on my fail of a life, and occasionally see pictures of my every day occurrences. 

  • Follow MY TUMBLR to see funny pictures, vines, beautiful scenic photos, and once in a blue moon,  funny stuff in my life. 
It would be amazing if you could hit my sites up and if you do, makes sure you say hi :)

Okay, that's all I have for you guys right now.
I'll talk to y'all later and be looking out for a great post later this week!

My Unexplained Summer Hiatus Explained!

Hey hey hey! Let me just start out by saying I'm really sorry that I've been ignoring my blog AND all your blogs this summer. You guys probably don't even remember who I am anymore!!
Summer's been busy and fun, and I've been using the past three months to unplug, take a break from the internet, and recharge and become inspired again for my blog.

Anyway, because of my hiatus, I feel as if we should start over.

Let me reintroduce myself.... Hello! My name is July A. Emmance, but you can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. Let me tell you about my summer. I live in a very culturally proud little town the borders beautiful beaches giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, iceberg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I spent a lot of time at my local beach this summer.....

Michigan also has an abundance of fresh fruits to pick in the summer, so I picked a lot of blueberries!! 

And hammocking has been all the rage lately, so I hammocked. 

I went to summer camp (of which I didn't not get any pictures because we weren't allowed to bring cameras, but that was extremely fun as well. Some highlights include lazy river tubing, horseback riding, canoeing, eating ice cream, making crafts, and getting to know the counselors there. 

I also spent an afternoon doing a nature photo shoot in my backyard.....

I went to the zoo! 

And last but not least, I went up to Northern Michigan to Mackinac Island. This was my little vacation for the summer and it was extremely fun because we spent a lot of time on the island doing touristy things (just like you're supposed to because it is a touristy island).  If you haven't had a chance to go there, you definitely should if you ever make it to Michigan. The island is famous for making fudge, so if that doesn't make you want to go, I don't know what will! No, but for real though.... there are no cars on the island so people get around by bike or horse and there's such a nice charm to the island that it's irresistible. My favorite part was when my family biked around the outside of the island :) Unfortunately I forgot my camera so I didn't get pictures the day we went there but I have a few from the main land.

Don't these fire pictures look like horses?!?!?!?!

So those are a few highlights from my summer! Now I want to here about yours. Let me know what you've been up to lately in the comments below.
Also be looking out for my next post coming out in the following week on unpopular book opinions :)

Love y'all!
