    Poetry is not always my jam, but I could not put this book of poetry down! It began with a strong sense of humor, then moved to sweet and reflective, with a dash of whimsy before heading into a bit of melancholy that made my heart ache before winding up with love poems to the author’s loves and a whopping poem for the ultimate encouragement to mamas and what we often perceive as the mundaneness of our lives. It was raw, it was real, it was heart tugging, it was soothing, it was funny, it was Poetry is not always my jam, but I could not put this book of poetry down!

It was raw, it was real, it was heart tugging, it was soothing, it was funny, it was encouraging. I felt like I was in the author’s home and she was in mine. Every mama should have this book! Hospitals should hand these out to new mamas!

    Raw Truthful Book of Poems What a wonderfully sweet collection of poems taken from moments in the author’s life. The vivid choice of words paint beautiful stand alone poems just long enough to complete the mental picture. The family photos are the icing on the cake. I felt like I just sat down and had tea or coffee with a friend. I highly recommend this to moms of all ages. But mom’s in the trenches of mothering are going to appreciate this the most.
