Celebrating Four Years Of This Messy Season!

This is a bittersweet, unbelievable, post to write. Four years ago, in my chilly Indiana kitchen I started this website. My toddler and baby were still asleep, I looked around the house for inspiration. I'd need a name if I was going to bring this platform to life. I noted the crumbs on the floor, the dog fur along the base boards (didn't I just clean that?!) It was important to me, season, be a part of my name because…

Little Women Movie 2019: A Review

Disclaimer: I was hosted for an advanced screening to check out this movie before it releases to curate this review. All opinions expressed are my own. One of my favorite stories of all time is Little Women. I'm always so nervous when people turn my beloved favorite books into movies. Will they do it justice?
