book club












These beautiful desserts were provided by none other than Taggart's Grill for book club hosted here at my home. My mother-in-law is a pretty amazing dessert chef.

The book we all read and discussed was The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. I would highly recommend the book to anyone. It was a beautifully written memoir about her childhood with some pretty crazy parents. I came away from the book feeling like a pretty good mom.

The week has been busy with minivan shopping/buying and cleaning house to host book club. I am anxious to simplify. I will stay home tomorrow and try to be still, at least for a few moments. I will at least get some good cuddles in on the couch with the little ones.

Oh, and for shame that you were shy about telling people you have this fantastic blog! It's beautiful and sunny. An instant mood lifter. I'm going to check it daily.

Hugs!
