Early heads up: I'm tentatively planning to run my summer fundraiser next week. I'm also planning to take a little time away for my birthday beginning on or around July 3rd. Technically, I'll be 36 on July 4th, but to me it will be more like my 1st birthday.
Have a good weekend and happy Father's Day.
