Jackie is my favorite writer, and not just for humor. She has a way of weaving the sweetness of life into her humor writing. Although I've never met her, when I read her stories, I feel like she's sitting right next to me on my couch telling me about her life. And the thing is - nearly everything she says makes me feel like she's been writing all along about my life too. When you read Jackie's work, you'll quickly understand why she would be anyone's favorite story teller. She's simply the best.

I can't remember laughing more while reading a book! A laugh out loud look at, well, life! Easy to read recap of things we can all relate to in day to day life with hubby, kids, and all that come with being a mom and wife while trying to keep a sense of self. LOVE IT

Totally enjoyed this book! Made me laugh (out loud) about real life situations that can happen to any of us. We can all relate to what she writes about! There are also stories about her kids growing up and changing. Her memories of them when they were younger evoked the same bittersweet feelings in me because my son is now a teen. Definitely a great read, and I enjoy Jackie's posts on Facebook!

Fortunately, we can now read all about her adventures in her new book.
