Hello, friends!

Welcome to the Monthly Coffee, a little linky party hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos. This party is all about sharing those fabulous blogs that you’ve read this month.

Let’s grow our blogger community by sharing the best posts you’ve come across. You’ll find new blogs to read, and we’ll all make new friends.

So pour yourself a steamy beverage, grab the button and share your favorite reads this month. That said, here were my favorite reads lately:
