Book Review: Hemingway Didn’t Say That

Have you ever heard a quote attributed to a specific person and thought, "did they really say that?" Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and other social media outlets circulate countless sayings supposedly coined by Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, and many others. Oftentimes, the attribution alone seems to give the quote more clout. But did they … Continue reading Book Review: Hemingway Didn’t Say That

Book Review: Girl, Wash Your Face

Oh, boy. Okay. This book is a mash-up of "here's how to get more done" and "if you're not successful it's 100% your fault" with a little bit of Jesus talk thrown in.

The next day, we enjoyed a fun day and day after Christmas dinner with quite a few of Reid's coworkers. Today is Reid's last … Continue reading Finding Land Book Club

FlyLady in May: Zones 5 and 1

You may have noticed that I did not publish an entry for Zone 4 in my FlyLady in May series. This was intentional.
