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 carseats, 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.
