If you have a quiet moment today, how do you want to spend it?
One of my favorite ways to spend my girls’ naptime is to curl up with a cup of coffee (or tea if I’m already fully caffeinated) and sit down to read. Articles or blogs online are perfect for the quiet time, as I’m never sure how much time I will have. Some days I will pull out a book.
