About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

What I Wish I Knew at 18 Review and Book Giveaway!

                                  The winner is Alicia!  Congratulations!!

My Thoughts:

My girls love it when I share my life lessons and pearls of wisdom with them.  Well.... not really.  You see, Mommy advice usually comes with way too much information and/or a lecture.  Fun, huh?  What I WIsh I Knew at 18  Life Lessons for the Road Ahead delivers a wealth of information that's a pleasure to read and there's no lecture involved.  In fact, I found myself wishing I knew a young person that was graduating this year as it would be the perfect gift.  Who am I kidding?  It goes beyond graduation.  Not only does Dennis Trittin cover topics such as Character, Relationships, Communication and College Academics he also gives wonderful advice about Handling Adversity, Career Selection, Love and Marriage and so much more.  I particularly enjoyed reading about Learning to Speak Comfortably in Groups (something I've always struggled with) and Taking Charge of Your Worries (we all need this).  What I Wish I Knew at 18 reads like a friendly road map for life.  It's entertaining, honest and real.
