Night Night Farm by Amy Parker Review & Giveaway

A new book, Night Night Farm by Amy Parker,  arrived at our house a couple weeks ago, and it has been practically impossible to pry this book from Aubrey's grasp.

She curls up in her mini rocker numerous times a day to "read" it, and of course we have to read this book every night before bedtime. I have even caught her sleeping with it a few times!

How Downy Fabric Conditioner Changed My Laundry Routine #ProtectClothesYouLove

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks on behalf of @Downy and @Walmart.   A few months ago I shared my laundry routine, and I may have surprised a few readers when I announced that I dry my clothes the old fashioned way on the line.
