Books I’ve Recently Read | February Edition

Hi! I was able to knock three books out of the park last month–mostly thanks to being able to read on my phone as I nurse the babe in the wee hours of the night.

I was going to post my Best of 2015 Books, but I thought it might cause a riot if I didn’t announce our sweetest little bundle first. On December 27th at 2:02 pm, Scott and I welcomed sweet little Baby Billy Bobbette to our family. Caroline Harper, whom we will call Cara, weighed 7 pounds 7 ounces and is 19.25 inches long ....more
