  1. My girls loving getting dressed up for church too. Your little man is adorable, still hoping one day we will be blessed with a son too. But I love my girls! Grew up with just brothers, so it’s totally crazy that manly man self loves doing girlies hair, but I do. 

  2. My recent reads are “Sea Change” by Karen White and “Me Before You” by JoJo Moyes. I really liked both of them and cannot wait for the movie rendition of “Me Before You.” I did cry intensely multiple times a warning.
    I also have been trying to read through Elin Hilderbrand’s books – love most of hers! Another author I like that I read a few years back is Pam Jenoff and she has a few newer ones I have on my list. The Kommandant’s Girl and the Diplomat’s Wife were great. Hope this helps!

  3. what great link to graphic on what to read!  Have read MANY of those on that list and they have been some of the best books I’ve ever read.  So any of those!  going to add the ones I haven’t to my out of control “To Read ” list on good reads! LOL

  4. I loved Creed also, would recommend that one to everyone. I love Caleb’s church outfit, he is looking really cool.
