It’s been another busy week as we start winding down Summer, but I don’t mind since Fall is my favorite season. On Monday, I shared with you why your wants aren’t the enemy. It is your response to your wants that matters. And on Wednesday, I shared a few simple tips to help make back-to-school shopping easier this Fall. The girls and I need to sit-down soon and get our game plan together.
A Few Good Reads
These are my favorite posts from the past week. Enjoy!
