I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: The Perks of Being Wallflower and Don't Go

The following post may contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase after clicking on the links we may be compensated.
 Me - Today I am recommending The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This is a really good book. I liked the plot. It was about a boy who started high school and made friends with a group of high school seniors. I could really relate to his struggle to participate and fit in. I think any tween or teen would be able to relate to it. Although the book ended happy, it was kind of sad too. All in all, it was a good book.
 Mom -  Today I am recommending Don't Go by Lisa Scottoline. Don't Go is about a soldier stationed in Afghanistan whose wife dies under mysterious circumstances while he is deployed in Afganistan leaving him the only parent to a baby daughter who hardly knows him. When he finds out his wife may have been cheating him, he is determined to find out the truth, a quest which leads to danger and trouble not only for himself but for those he cares about. At the same time, he is trying to build a relationship with his daughter who is closer to his sister-in-law and her husband than she is to him. This is a different kind of story for Lisa Scottoline both because it is told from the point of view of a man and because it partially takes place in Afganistan. It is not only a page turner of a mystery but also a sometimes heartbreaking sometimes sweet story of a man and his daughter. I really enjoyed it, and I would recommend it.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
