July was quite busy, and as always, super inspirational. Here’s what kept me busy and inspired this month:
- Friday, July 1: Victory! One of our Neighbors won the Roger’s Garden California Friendly Garden Contest! Called the Banuelos Garden online, we know it better as “Rancho Relaxo.” Congrats Joe & Chela! In addition Wayne & Merle won one of The Most Beautiful Yard Awards for Santa Ana. Congrats to Wayne & Merle for their well-deserved award. Thanks to you both for representing our ‘hood so well!
- Saturday, July 2: Return to real life after a week of “glamping” followed by a day of cleaning.
- Sunday, July 3: I found True Love in Boat Drinks.
- Monday, July 4: Party at Jess’s house, no fireworks, but a whole lot of people in the pool… fully clothed.
