Every year, on February 1st, Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy writes a post about what’s saving her life, the positive things big or small that are making these winter months more bearable. The idea is that we’re all great at listing our complaints but don’t often spend that same amount of mental energy on the good things. Here are some of the little things keeping … Continue reading What’s Saving My Life Right Now.
I don’t think I need to tell you that winter is HARD some days but, guys, winter is hard some days.

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday theme is bookworm delights – things that make your little bookworm heart warm up and sing. Let’s squeal and say, “me, too!” together okay?

There are the really pricey leather bound volumes behind glass but also just little books in older bindings, with the pages kind of starting … Continue reading Top 10: Bookworm Delights
I’m kind of combining two tags / writing prompts right now. This week’s Writer’s Workshop, which is hosted by the brilliant Mama Kat, includes the prompt: 6.

I’m pretty … Continue reading 10 Songs Found While Shuffling.
I’m linking up for another Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new prompt. This week’s prompt is… Ten Books To Make You Laugh. I’m stealing Kate’s idea of listing 10 funny picture books because after my suggestions for tween girls and 10 year old boys, picture books seems like a natural progression. And being a … Continue reading 10 Funny Picture Books for Kids
