As you can tell from the title of this blog, I LOVE keeping my home and taking care of my family. My mother is incredibly good at this and I've always wanted to be just like her.
I read a book a few years ago called Home Comforts: The Art and Science of Keeping House by Cheryl Mendelson and learned a great deal from her. I just found out today that Martha Stewart has a new book out called Homekeeping Handbook that sounds like it will be a great teaching tool as well.
I love to read old homemaking books, too. Do you have any favorites that you recommend?
I don't think I can ever learn enough about running our home more efficiently. I want this to be a place that my family wants to be- a place that they just can't wait to be at the end of long day. A place just like my mother created.
