July 31, 2023 – Campfires are better than Dumpster Fires

What can I say other than July was really, really busy. I am a bad blogger. I am not good at taking pictures of everything and writing about what I do. I AM good at carting my kid around to her summer activities and stopping at the grocery store when we need turkey, pizza, and toilet paper. Oh, and making chocolate chip cookies. Anyway, just stopping by for a quick check in and then back to work.

The title of this blog post is “Campfires are better than Dumpster Fires”. July was busy, but it was NOT a dumpster fire. Good things happened. The week of the 4th of July we went to a family’s party and they always have the best nighttime fire. I actually took a bunch of pictures because so many friends and family showed up. We had a blast. Here is our campfire!


A couple of weeks ago my sister and I took a short weekend vacation up in Door Co. Wisconsin. No kids, no husbands, it was great! We got back to the Cana Island lighthouse, we took the ferry over to Washington Island, we stopped at Door Co. Coffee and Tea Company, we walked around at Newport State Park. It was a much needed get away. If I remember correctly, I had not spent a night away from either my husband or daughter in seven years!

I gotta go, it’s time to get back to work! I will stop in more often and tell you what I am up to.

***PLEASE NOTE*** I am always busy with something, but my business is very important to me. If you order something from me it is my top priority to get it to you quickly. I want my customers to be happy. If you need something from me or have a question about an order or a product I have made for you in the past, please contact me: missie@gigglefritz.com

I hope your last day of July 2023 is happy and/or productive. (I hope mine is too 😉

This last Saturday we went to a bonfire at my sister and brother-in-law’s house. We roasted some marshmallows, made some s’ mores, talked and watched shooting stars. I didn’t get to see a shooting star, but I did see big and little dipper.

A friend brought her two kids, one is a sweet little baby girl. It was nice to hear her talk and make mushy mouth noises.  I will be hearing more of those mushy mouth noises very soon!
