Lemonade Cupcakes

Some of you have been asking about the 40 day conference reading challenge…I will posting the bookmark next week and the actual challenge will begin on the 17th of August and end the Sunday before October Conference!  It seems crazy to think that we are that close to another conference!  Are you ready for the challenge???  Get your friends, family and neighbors, your VT sisters and any others you can to join you in the challenge…it is always more fun when you have someone to do it with you!
