Hey y’all! Each week I share a useful tip, insight, or recipe from a book I’m reading. As you might imagine, I get a TON of books to review every month. It’s time to share the best of the best with you, so let’s get started!

He’s right, I am different. I mean, I sometimes look for my shorts in the freezer, have long conversations about why it’s not a good idea to blend the words “frog” and “yuck,” and thank my lucky stars that I no longer have to run into the UPS man that delivered to my house when Katie was a baby.
