I’ve been meaning to share this book I read and absolutely loved! A true story from the 50s about a woman who didn’t have much left, but saw an opportunity and rode with it. Literally. I love this grit story and highly recommend this read.  “In 1954, 63-year-old Maine farmer Annie Wilkins embarked on an […]

Lit List: The Ride of Her Life

This was another book I picked up to read this month and I absolutely loved it! It wasn’t your typical “self help” book (which I’m not a fan of) but complete opposite. It offered a Biblical perspective on taking ownership of your daily life and putting your identity in being a child of God. Not […]

Lit List | Own Your Everyday

I was thrilled when Lit League contacted me about becoming an affiliate and sharing their boxes with you all! As you know, we are book lovers. It’s my mission to raise readers and it’s a joy to see them get lost in books. These activity boxes take a story even deeper and are themed entirely […]

Lit League

If there was ever a book that I needed for such a season as this one I’m in (other than the Bible, of course) it is what I’m holding. I don’t say this lightly but it truly changed my life and also took a lot of the thoughts and feelings I’ve been having for months, […]

The Life You Long For

I started this book last fall and then life happened. I picked it back up last weekend and literally couldn’t put it down, finishing it Wednesday evening. This is a book everyone should read and went along perfect as I’m in the middle of my mental toughness challenge. I’ve actually connected with Sarah a couple […]

Lit List | The Growing Season

I’ve always been a reader and when my oldest started to take interest, I was thrilled! One of Paisley and I’s favorite things to do is to curl up under a blanket and dive into a good book. It’s been fun re-reading some of my old favorites as well as the classics. Scout is starting […]

This Spring, Paisley and I got our library cards and frequented the book shelves often over the summer. I’ve been wanting to read this book for years and finally checked it out this month. It is hands down one of the best stories I’ve ever read.I saw that the movie is coming out in February […]

Lit List | Same Kind of Different As Me

I hope your first weekend of 2016 was wonderful. We have been going through our home, purging clutter and getting items ready to sell + donate. I love new beginnings, however, the abundance of things scattered across our home can feel a bit overwhelming. I try to look at it as a clean slate and a weight lifted off our […]

In With the Old // A Nursery Addition

It’s finally here! I was so excited to get my hands on this book. Scout turns 4 weeks old today so naturally I had to get her picture with it. I’ve had so many people ask where we got her name and yes, it is from To Kill a Mockingbird-my all time favorite novel. Paisley […]
