Cozier than Cozy

I have never been to England, but after reading this book I am anxious to go. And on my trip I want to visit an adorable little cottage nestled in the woods, with smoke coming out of the chimney, a pebble pathway leading to the front door, and most importantly, delicious smells wafting from the…

In the Skies

Since I was a little girl, I have always loved looking up to the sky. What we See in the Stars by Kelsey Oseid is a beautifully illustrated book about the constellations and other celestial bodies.

A Hygge

You know that perfect space you envision? For me it has a fire place, with logs ablaze. I would have the perfect cup of hot chocolate in hand, overflowing with marshmallows. I would be sitting in the most comfortable chair, I would have my sweet pup curled on the rug in front of the fire…

Adorable Animal Groups

A cloud of bats, a band of coyotes, a party of jays, who knew? A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings by Matt Sewell was an informative and gorgeously illustrated book about animal groups.

The Versatile Sweet Potato

After flipping through Sweet Potatoes: Roasted, Loaded, Fried, and Made into Pie I realize just how adaptable this root vegetable is.

I love how the title of this book, “Is the Bible Good for Women”, really draws the reader in. I had a friend see this book on my kitchen table and wonder what it was about. I plan to lend it to her next. I think I also chose this book because the title was…

Lovely & Informative Postcards

Maybe it’s because I’m an animal person, but I LOVE these postcards. Each animal featured has a cute drawing and a few informative tidbits. You could easily add some color to the postcard with a marker or colored pencil before sending it out which would make your recipient all the happier! The postcards are divided…

Trust Your Inner GPS

The first habit changing mantra I have chosen to put into practice is this one: trust your inner GPS. I love the layout of this book, Habit Changers.
