Editorial Month-In-Review

Well the summer has proven to be very busy combining news, products and weddings all in one giant busy season, so I apologizefor not being more up to date with the blog as I have been in prior months. So, again I am doing a month-in-review because we have been lagging with the updates!However, this review could be summed up in about a week, as now that Supreme Court Justice Nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s senate hearings are now over with, the DC News cycle has slowed dramatically! It actually makes me wish there was another election coming up!! — Although I’m sure the next presidential election coverage will start soon enough!

This month also brought some bad personal news for me, as I am now scheduled to have open heart surgery a the end of August. Alas, our blog updates will probably be few and far between during the rest of this month and thru October as I will not fully be back on my feet until the first few weeks in October. However I’ve got a lot of plans for the business and for the website that I would like to begin to implement during my down time – hopefully I will be with it enough to get some of the things on my list scratched off.

Anyway, on to the photos:
