Book Review: 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think

I recently finished 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think by Laura Vanderkam.  Although Laura’s New York City lifestyle is far different from mine, I was still able to glean lots of good information from this book. One thing that Laura emphasizes throughout the book is focusing as much of your time as […]

Finding Time to Read

I have to be honest with you, one year ago when I wrote my six goals, I really did not believe that there was enough time in my day for reading.  I especially did not believe that there would be enough time in my day for reading after delivering my third child. Yet, as of […]

List of 100 Dreams

Book Review: Quitter by Jon Acuff

I recently finished Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job & Your Dream Jobby Jon Acuff, and if you couldn’t tell from my last post, I enjoyed it.  Since it was a library book, I couldn’t mark it up, so I kept a post-it note nearby to jot down notes.  Here were a few […]

Book Review: Belly Laughs, Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff About Money, & Organized Simplicity
