For the bookworm on your holiday gift list! @TidyBooks

As you can tell from that snazzy button over in my sidebar, I’m a Tidy Books Ambassador. The Book Box and Book Case have been providing great storage for our kids’ books for months, and now I’m happy to introduce you to the newest addition to our Tidy Books collection: the Bunk Bed Buddy!

When I started exercising again after Elliette’s birth, I found myself in need of some new clothing and equipment. Since comfort was top of mind, I started searching for yoga pants. (Mom staple, right?) I knew the Gaiam name from some of the gear I already had, but when I looked them up I found SO much more than I expected!
