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

Giveaway: Win a copy of The Book of Extraordinary Historical Mysteries

Welcome to the April Showers Giveaway Hop
hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island. 

If you love a good mystery, but you have trouble finding ones that are not predictable and don't make you feel like you are always reading the same old story over and over again, you should try reading  The Book of Extraordinary Historical Mystery Stories edited by Maxim Jakubowski. This extremely eclectic book consists of a collection of mystery stories that are completely unique in every way. No two stories are by the same author.  No two stories are set in the same location. There are barely even any, if any, stories set in the same historical time period. A wide variety of mystery genres are covered in this anthology as well. No matter what kind of mystery lover you are, you are sure to find something you like in this book. It's great for reading on the beach this summer or anywhere anytime.

  1. Agatha Christie is my favorite mystery author because she was such a clever and timeless writer.

    1. I used to read his books, but I haven't in a while. I love that the chapters are so short, and they are so quick to read. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and your comment.

  3. As a kid, I absolutely loved the Trixie Belden (and to a lesser extent Nancy Drew) mystery books! But as an adult, I could never get much into Agatha Christie or the Sherlock Holmes mysteries. But at one time I did find myself absorbed by Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone alphabet mysteries! Those kept it interesting for me because of the writing and because each story was really a bit different...not altogether predictable.
