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 Future of Science is Female & Holidays in Willow Valley

 We may have been given complimentary copies of one or more of the books and/or other products listed below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
Books: The Future of Science is Female and Holidays in Williamette Valley
Today we are recommending two books.

The first book we are recommending today is The Future of Science is Female by Zara Stone. This book is both interesting and inspirational. It is all about how exceptional women are making huge advancements in different areas of science. There is Kimberlie Le a pioneer in making sustainable food, Vivian Chu the inventor of Moxie, the hospital helping robot, and many other impactful women highlighted in this book. This is a book is for any girl who was every turned away from science and toward other pursuits just because she was a girl and for every women striving to make the world a better place but not taken seriously and having to work so much harder to proof herself just because she was a woman. Woman have the brains, the desire, the talent and the drive to succeed in any area of science just as much as men. This book proves it.

The second book we are recommending today is Holidays in Willow Valley by Linda Weaver Clarke. This charming book is another installment in her historical romance series. This book features all three couples we have grown to know and love in the other three books in the series and their various friends and relatives as well as some new characters. It is told in a series of short stories that revolve around the holidays. There is the story of the Valentine's Days Kissing Bandit as well as that of the St. Patrick's Days Leprechaun and more. The stories are both engaging, inspirational and full of the sweet romance that Linda Weaver Clarke's Willow Valley books are known for. Each story is followed by a fascinating note on how the author came up with the idea for the story and its factual basis. All in all, the book is a delight. 

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