Books: 5 Random Favorites – From Breakups to Pasta

books

Ok so let me just start by saying I am certainly not an avid reader. I should be, we all should be, but I was never the type to curl up in bed and just read…read for hours, finish a book in one sitting, it was never possible because I’d just fall asleep. Sleep won, no matter how good of a book, but I have read my share and these 5 are the ones I enjoyed most. In no particular order either: Continue reading

Love, Chaos && Diapers … lots of them

Ten years ago if you would’ve told me when I was 35 years old I’d have three children under the age of 2 I would’ve never believed it. I can tell you this much, it amazes me how much I truly found out about myself and how different my outlook changed on everything that normally did not matter much to me. For example, the amount of patience one endures when it comes to taking care of a little human being that you love more than life itself, or the amount of love one has to give.
