12 in 2012 | The Finale

I’ve totally given myself grace with my 12 in 2012 goals. I decided on most of them just a few days before I found out Max would be joining our family in 2012 and let me tell you, babies change things. Always for the better, but not always for a boost in productivity, lol. Either […]

12 in 2012: Book Update {and my Nifty Nook}

Between the move this summer and Max’s arrival my reading has really slowed down. My initial goal was to read 6 books in 2012. When I hit that I bumped it to 20 and now that is seeming a little zealous. But, I’m pressing forward and hoping to meet my goal. I’m thinking my awesome […]

12 in 2012: Book Update

I’m really not one for full-fledged book reviews.  I read purely for relaxation and don’t expect a whole lot from a book, just a story.  Just a moment to pause my life and delve into someone else. I always read in the bath tub. I’m trying to read all the novels on my bookshelf that […]
