    Loved this peek into your bookshelves, both past and present. Hope you’ll continue to share when you find new books to love. Are you on goodreads?ReplyCancel

  • kimberly - Wow! I love your view on this topic. And you are so right about there being more to life than cooking, cleaning, and work. I think we can easily obsess over those things and not allow ourself time to do something we really enjoy. Great images and words!ReplyCancel
