My recommendations this week:
I’ve taken tons of personality tests in the past, so was surprised to make completely new discoveries about myself thanks to this read. SO much is making sense now – definitely check it out if you lean more to the sensitive side of life!
After reading a blog post with the suggestion, my kids have started using these to make & pack their own lunches every night. The next day at lunch time, they just grab them and head to the table–it’s added a lot of peace to that time of day for me!
Reading Rainbow, one of my favorite kids’ TV shows of all time, has 25 episodes streaming for FREE on Amazon Prime. So special to rediscover these alongside my kiddos – this show turned me into a book lover way back when.
