Books and Journals

If your couch is covered in several loads of laundry and you can’t find two socks that match, and if there are petrified French fries in your back seat, I think we could be best friends. It’s a little easier now that my children have left the nest, but there was a time when my minivan had dried up milk under the child car seats, and my living room floor was a minefield of Lego pieces. Boy moms, can I get an amen?

Right now, there is dust on my television screen and 100 messages in my inbox, but I’m happy to kick back with an iced latte and a good book rather than work on either of those problems. And I would much rather be chalk-painting a yard-sale dresser than scrubbing my kitchen floor! I hope you’ll connect here and tell your friends to stop by too.
