    Good morning!

    Are you counting down to Christmas in July? I know I am. Here are the 2018 themes so that you can start planning. Special thanks to Jody (Miss JoDee) for coming up with a great framework for this year. I added in all of the suggestions from the Looking Ahead thread plus a couple more and tweaked the list so that we had 31 daily themes. They are broken down a little farther into categories which you can see by the bold titles. There will be a daily post here on the Christmas in July board so you can share your day and put up a blog link if you blog. Can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for you!
