Just finished this on audiobook. It was a cute, quick listen. It‘s your typical “pretend to be my girlfriend for this thing, then we‘ll fall in love” story. Perfect for right before Valentine‘s Day...if you‘re in to that short of thing. ❤️💘💝

Thanks @EadieB for the tag!

1. Yes! I was about 4-5. My mom was a hair dresser and had left her stuff of the kitchen table. I was home alone with dad, who was napping on the couch. So I cut my hair, the dog‘s hair, and a stuffed dog‘s hair (Max from The Little Mermaid). I looked like a pineapple 🍍
2. A break in the storm and some much needed sunshine this weekend ☀️

Cosmos_Moon Lol! Sounds like something I did around that age... I cut my hair and all my toys that had hair, and thought it would grow back. At least mine did 😂 12mo

“Food, a French man told me once, is the first wealth. Grow it right, and you feel insanely rich, no matter what you own.”

Reading something a little different than what I‘d normally pick. But it is something that is so dear to my heart, as we have more than doubled the size of our garden this year.

I never get more than one book from the library at a time. I was feeling adventurous last week and got these two, and good thing I did because they decided yesterday to close until further notice. 😭
I finished Dear Edward last night, and really enjoyed it. I spent my rainy weekend, unable to put it down.

I finished this one a couple days ago, and have been putting off writing about it because I‘m not ready for it to be over. I thought it was so well written, and I really enjoyed how each of the characters stories evolved. It definitely lived up to the hype, and was just what I needed after a couple of pretty dark reads.

Help! I need book suggestions for my 8 year old boy. This is his current read. He‘s read all the Dog Man books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants. He said that books with lots of small words on the page (and no pictures) overwhelm him. What books do you kiddos love?

Mehso-so

Just finished listening to this audiobook. It was...a lot. There were several times I thought about turning it off and being done with it, because it was hard to listen to. But the other part of me wanted to see what was going to happen to Shelly. If you‘re into true crime stuff, this is definitely one for you.

CoverToCoverGirl Was it hard to listen too because of the narration or was it just too graphic? I‘m asking because I was contemplating getting it but was hesitant because of how graphic it might be. 2y
BeckyandBooks Sorry, I should have been more clear in my original post. It gets pretty graphic in scenes. It was terribly sad, and as a mom was hard for me to listen to. That being said, I do enjoy true crime...just not when it involves kids. 2y

I love the cover of this book, it‘s so simple and pretty. I also really enjoyed the book, and had a hard time putting it down. Each chapter was a different characters perspective, which really sucked me in because I wanted to know more. My only complaint is that it ended a little abruptly.

It was a busy busy week, full of work, travel and travel for work. We spent a week in Utah camping, whitewater rafting, SUPing, and hiking! It was absolutely wonderful, even though I didn‘t hit all of my weekly goals. It was a great reset before our wedding in two weeks. I also didn‘t get much reading done, but I did start the tagged book while at the airport yesterday and haven‘t been able to put it down. #BFCr3
