Personalized books help create a little #bookmagic this season!

November 18th, 2014

I am receiving two books from Put Me in The Story for this post. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.


Reading is important. It’s been proven time and time again but for me, it’s especially important that my kids learn the joys of reading. I’ve always been able to play a book in my head like a movie. I cast characters and see the adventure as I move through a book and I want my kids to know that joy. To know that they can go on adventure after adventure while in the comfort of their own mind.

Sadly, for Landon, reading has proven to be difficult for him to learn. He loves his math and science but reading just seems to be a subject he struggles in. We’ve been working on it. He knows it’s important so he can “learn more facts” according to him but he gets frustrated when he can’t get it. Emmie on the other hand is recently five and isn’t really learning her phonics in preschool yet. She loves reading books and making up stories but without learning her letter sounds, for now it’s not something she can do on her own.

I want reading to be magical and I think the best way to do that this holiday season is with personalized books. For Christmas we’ll be adding Put Me in The Story personalized books under the tree for them. Not only will the kids be in the story, see their name along with their favorite characters but it’s also a special keepsake that we can use at night to spend time together. My kids really enjoy hanging out so this is the perfect gift to share with them as we hang out before bed.

13 Weeks: Twins

Last time I did one of these I was 14 weeks pregnant with Lincoln. It’s crazy how time flies with this. Sometimes I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever and others I feel like it’s flown by. **I’ve assigned the A and B. A is always in the front and who we see first. It…

I’m alive.

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. There are a multitude of reasons as to why this is. In August I started school. With a full time class schedule it made it a little hard to blog regularly. Then I got a job as well. This made it damn near impossible for me to…

While there I was introduced to The Sims Series. It was a fun game and I remember at that point, laughing about them taking showers….
