I'm feeling very excited today because we only have one more day until one of my favorite long weekends of the year, MDW. It's the official unofficial start of summer and I couldn't be more excited for the season. My last few summers were kind of a bummer: Last year I was in the throes of post-partum anxiety, the summer before I was pregnant for half of it and in a newborn fog for the other half, and the summer before that I was pretty depressed and out of it in the midst of our infertility.

This book took a little longer for me to read than usual because I just wasn't that into it. I feel bad giving less-than-stellar reviews because I know how hard authors work to complete a book, and I do love this author, but I didn't connect to this particular novel. Read my review for More Than Words below and let me know what you thought if you joined me this month!
My hair has really given me a run for my money post-partum and although I found a great product that helps a lot, I also regularly color it which isn't making the situation any better.

With the rise in popularity of Marie Kondo and 'tidying up' around the world, people are donating more clothing than ever. It feels good to donate gently used tees or jeans, but this era has created a flood of donations that no one seems to want. So instead of dropping your garbage bags full of used clothing at Goodwill, or other popular donation locations, where up to 85% of your product will end up in landfills, be strategic about how you donate, sell, or upcycle what you no longer love.
