Thankfully, I have been SO blessed that both of my boys have LOVED books since they were super young. Since they both love books so much they, of course, get a TON of wear.

52 Weeks Of Me Challenge – Week 4 Recipe of your favorite food (Disclaimer: We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.) Lemon… in pasta? Ew! That is exactly what I thought for YEARS. I have hated the idea of lemon in food for so long. Boy… was I missing out. We recently ordered a Home Chef box (I did a review on it here). In the box was Chicken Piccata. I was SO worried that I was…
