Picture this: It's Thursday evening, December 22nd. You've finally completed the packing process for a long trip: organizing, planning, washing, folding, sorting, packing for 1 dog to go the sitter, 1 cat to go to a friend, 2 kids to spend a week with their grandparents and 2 adults to be out of the country for a week.

Anyone who knows me and anyone who has ever read my blog knows just how special books are to me. They always have been. They always will be. Growing up, some of my best friends in the world were the characters I met in books. It is so important to me to try to instil that same love for reading and for books in my own children as they grow. I absolutely LOVE when my daughter comes running to me with one of her many many books and asks, "Mommy, can you read this to me?". I will generally drop whatever Read more [...]
