Read All About It: Books For Your Beach Bag

I’ve always been a voracious reader and in my younger days, I could easily devour a novel in a single day. Now that things like a job, two hungry kids and a never-ending laundry pile fill my days, I can’t sneak nearly as much time to dive into a book as I used to. And, […]

Those Summer Nights

I grew up during that amazing time when summers were spent almost exclusively outside.
