Happy Friday & the last day of February!This month for my happiness project, I focused on Love & Patience. Gretchen also chose this topic & I figured it was perfect for mine as well.

Well I sure am glad that I changed my mind... read more.

A lot of times I have a hard time getting through books that aren't novels but I really loved this book and made sure I finished it. As well as the entire Divergent series. But let's stay on topic here.So Lean In is geared toward the working woman and helps put a lot of things into perspective. Sheryl shares stories from her life, supp... read more.
