female friendships

I love watching shows highlighting female friendships. It’s why I loved Sex and the City and now Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce on Netflix (it’s 4 seasons and over now, so I’m late to the party). The hubs was a little concerned about my interest in a show about divorce, but I told him – that’s…

outfit

My 3 year-old has a very unique sense of style. Her outfit choices very daily. And sometimes hourly. In fact, I don’t even think she knows what she likes. I mean, of course, she doesn’t know what she likes. She’s 3. Or as I like to call kids at this age, threenagers. They are little…

When I first started marketing Caroline Girls two years ago, I thought about starting a Little Free Library. I loved the idea and thought it would be a great addition to our neighborhood. But I was swamped trying to promote my self-published book by an unknown author (your esteemed blogger girl 🙂 ), so it…
