It has been a while since I joined Book Date, Yarn Along and The Caffeinated Reader. Since my last join, I gave up on The Favorite Sister and gave it to my cousin. I finished How to Find Love in a Bookshop and really enjoyed it! I tried to read The Gunners, but returned it … Continue reading Book Date

We had a successful, fun Halloween! This is our first year trick or treating and both kids did well! Miss Mary had a blast and Eamon even went to a few houses (he was more interested in all the decorations).
