Note from Amy- This month has been a particularly challenging one with my health. I, honestly, hate that this is a thing. It is annoying, taxing, and makes my heart hurt to talk about it. Can we just move on? Seriously. Ugh!
I am so thankful for my friends who step up in these moments and offer their precious time to me. My amazing friend, Katie, is sharing what she’s been bookmarking this week to free up some headspace for me this week. Please do visit her blog- you will not be disappointed! If you would like to help with the happy list this month or guest spot on the notebook, shoot me an email at amy(at)momadvice(dot)com! xoxo
