Think and Grow Rich- Book Review

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.  Holy.  S**t.  Please excuse my language but...holy.  S**t.  This has been, by far, the toughest book I've read all year.  And I don't say that in a bad way.  I mean it in a really, really good way.

"This entire household is going to be in for a rude awakening after I have this baby!!"  That's what I told my husband, with authority, when I was pregnant.  I'm not sure if I was trying to really prepare him...or myself.  I wanted my oldest daughter to stop drinking so much juice and more water. … Continue reading Garlic Parmesan Brussel Sprouts
