We have gorgeous hardwood floors in the home where we currently live. And the owner of the home has gone to great lengths to keep them looking good for the past 60 years!

But, we are humans who have furniture, and lives and a baby. The floors gets scratched. 

But I found a simple way to clean these scratches and scuffs using a surprising ingredient. Mayonnaise! Click here for more.

It's giveaway Time! Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe 

Good morning! It's giveaway time. 

A few weeks ago the books Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe  was released. I read it cover to cover in a day. (Well I read it on my Kindle, so I read it simulated cover to simulated cover.) 

My son is only 14 months, so while it can be a challenge I don't know that I always feel desperate. But I still related to SO MUCH of what authors Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson were taling about. 

I have enjoyed reading Sarah's blog for a year now. Just read this post called "Cultivating a Realistic Vision of Motherhood" and you will see why. 

So when "Desperate" came out I was eager to read it. Each chapter is wonderful. Each chapter offcers insight and hope and the knowledge that we are not alone in motherhood. It's grand design. 

So I am giving away a copy of this book so that other mothers out there can read it and feel the same way I did.
