oh hello, june.

i always look forward to the beginning of the month. things seem to slow down in the office, it’s a fresh start of new days, and it’s when sister used to publish her ‘oh hello’ blog posts.

since she stopped posting, it’s something i’ve missed. after a little bit of sulking, i decided that i would just claim it as my own. so here we are – hello, june – i’m introducing something new, and to kick it off i asked sister to write the first one.

from lakes to cows, it’s looking like sister has given us a pretty interesting list.

eating: a maple bacon mini doughnut from jelly modern #NationalDoughnutDay

researching: national doughnut day (it has a very cool history), Edith Cavell, and Mary Schäffer
