It’s Sunday, the beginning of a new week so that means it’s time for a Bloggin’ Recap. A feature inspired by A Bookish Heart. Every Sunday I’ll get the chance to tell you what’s going on in my life, what I’ve posted for the week, what to expect in the upcoming week and posts I enjoyed from other bloggers.

Well it’s been a long week with theater stuff. I’m on the board for my local community theater and I’ve been trying to increase our season ticket sales. We want to add more perks and so far we’ve come up with: an exclusive newsletter, champagne events, special raffle prizes and no box office line wait.
