Let's not forget what's really important.

In writing this blog our main goal is to hold our selves accountable and keep ourselves motivated. We also would like to share our favorite things and review products, or things we love from time to time. I'd like to share one of my all-time favorite books.
Having a nice, organized, orderly home and life are wonderful things. I completely believe that an unorganized mess can stress you out and maybe cause you to treat your family, friends, or maybe even co-workers not as nice as you should. I also think it's important to find the balance between what is reasonable, what you can do and what you want to do. Sometimes when I forget what really matters, or even when I don't and just accidentally pick it up Suzanne's Diary for Nicolas by James Patterson always motivates me and helps me feel better about things. No this is not a self-help book, more of a romance. Very sappy, tear-jerker for sure, but I love it I've read it so many times and will read it many more I'm sure. No one I've ever recommended it to has ever disliked it or been able to put it down. If you've been looking for a good read, this is it. For you non-readers it has been made into a movie starring Christina Applegate. Enjoy :)

"Katie Wilkinson has finally found the perfect man - but one day he suddenly disappears, leaving behind only a diary written by a new mother named Suzanne for her baby, Nicholas. In it she intimately reveals the romance between herself and the child's father, her hopes for their marriage, and her unparalleled joy in motherhood. As Katie reads on, she realizes that the man she loves is Suzanne's husband. Now, filled with terror and hope, Katie must struggle to understand what has happened - and find out if her new love has a prayer of surviving."


  1. I have this book on my dresser. Got it years ago in a Christmas grab and never read it. You have given me the kick in the ass I need to read it!

  2. Yay! I am always suggesting this book to people, love it when someone reads it. Let me know what you think! Good idea for a Christmas grab present I may have to do that this year.
