We had our first snowy day this week– and even though I’m not a huge fan of snow, it was maybe more magical than Christmas morning for my kids when they woke up to the blanket ofContinue reading “Our Favorite Books for Winter”
In January I remember thinking that maybe I should increase my reading goal for the year because I started the year in such a good reading groove.

Confession: The busy books were one of the main reasons I decided to join UBAM as an independent consultant last year. I thought they were the coolest concept, knew my oldest would love them, and wanted a few new things as we were at the very beginning of staying home 24/7.
