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: Relative Secrets and Reality (Can Be Okay, but Mostly It) Bites

 We may have been given complimentary copies for review purposes of any books and/or other products mentioned below. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: Relative Secrets and Reality (Can Be Okay, but Mostly It) Bites


Today we are recommending Relative Secrets by Helen Stancey. When Lucy and her mother are cleaning out her grandmother's home, Lucy discovers a locket that reveals a possibly shameful secret about her family, but with her grandmother's mind mostly gone, Lucy can't ask her about it so she sets out to try to find out the truth for herself. This book is not what you might expect. It is not so much about earthshattering revelations that rock a family. It is more of a quiet book about family and the way families look out for one another. If you are looking for an explosive potboiler, this is not the book you are looking for. If you are looking for a quiet book of reminisce and discovery, you may enjoy this book. 

Today we are recommending Reality (Can Be Okay, but Mostly It) Bites by Gordon Hutchison. This is an original book of short sayings about life, love, and the human condition. Some of them will make you laugh. Some of them will make you think. Some may even make you want to cry,. However, mostly it will remind you that we are all this together, experiencing the same things and there is something about that which is very comforting especially now.

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