  2. I read Actualise Daily’s 4 Rituals That Will Make You Happy and Book Rot’s Not-So-Typical Books about Motherhood from your post and I really enjoyed both of these articles. I love hearing about or reading book recommendations (like you, I should just be reading the hundreds of books that I already want to read, but I have to hear about more!) and this is a genre I don’t typically read, or think to read -probably because I’m no where close to the time in my life where I am going to have children, but reading about motherhood before I am a mother could be very rewarding. And who doesn’t want to be a little bit happier?!
    Great round-up this week!
