I saw a bunch of people doing this tag, particularly Elizabeth@ImaginationInPrint and water to do it. I also did this tag last year, and thought it would be fun to do it again this year, especially now that we’re halfway through, or so I thought. I wrote this back when it was July and it got buried under a load of drafts and I forgot to post it. So here it is, super late!
