A Season for Second Chances Book Club Discussion

Greetings! And welcome to 2022 - where we keep on pushing through all the craziness and stress that life’s been throwing at us! I know for me, 2021 really threw me for a loop, so here’s hoping 2022 has better things in store! As usual, my favorite escapist pastime continues to be reading.

A Healthier Dog for 2022

Thank you to K9 Power for sponsoring this post so I can share the scoop with you on a healthier dog for 2022. All opinions are 100% my own!Our two rescue pups are my loves! Henry and Charlie stole our hearts about five years ago, and no day since they exuberantly crashed into our home has ever been the same.

Under the Whispering Door Book Club Discussion

December is here, friends, and all the Christmas frenzy with it. It's such a bright, fun season, but we know it's not its dose of stress. And you know what Carrie and I are going to recommend as the perfect way to beat holiday stress--cozy up with a good read! I love falling into sweet Christmas novels this time of year. I think I might have about 20 of them on hold at the library!

What’s With the Judgement?

Seriously people, can we just get over this judging-other-parents thing?  (Disclaimer: this is most definitely an overdone post–deal.)  Obviously, if it affects me directly (as Patricia at The Worst Mom Ever so perfectly described, as in, you drop your multiple children at my house unannounced, we may have a problem), or if it potentially scars […]
