Because I know you're awesome like that!  And we all know it takes a village. So the more we share the more we can come together, roar together and conquer this thing called life together. 

If you are like me, you have hardly anytime to sit down much less READ. I have made it a point this year to read more books. Because we cannot grow without learning. But the mom life makes it almost impossible right? That's where I have found my love for Audible. I can fold laundry, walk the dog, cook dinner or be in the car and listening to a good book. Whether it's a self help or fiction book I can fit my reading time in while doing other things at the same time. Multi-tasking! What moming is all about!
