The Beehive Book News #7: The BEA Edition!

Good day everyone! I'm so happy to be able to share all of the happenings that have bumbled about around here this week :) Please forgive all of the noises in my vlog - it was quite warm, so you will probably here the air conditioning blasting next to me, as well as the washer and dryer and my stubborn little parrot who was insisting on some attention at that moment, lol! The video is also a bit choppy, I cut out all of the rambling that I tend to do and narrowed down my 30 minute vlog into less than 15! But  I promise, it's all there :) I didn't leave anything out! hee hee... enjoy!
