  1. A very interesting new collection, Annie. The first article especially – what a find! The last one grabbed me as well. Amazing job in putting this together for your readers! Happy Monday 🙂


    1. Hey Ramona,
      Happy Monday. Yes the first one really got my attention this weekend when I saw it. And it’s full of good, useful advice too. When it comes to legal stuff I think most of us go deer in the headlights – so having a post that spells things out clearly is great.

      I thought you might enjoy the piece about kids and reading since you have a boy of your own. Nice to see a study has validated what teachers and parents seemed to have known all along.

      Have a great week.
