ISEEM TO BE A BIT SHORT HERE ON YOUTH, SPOUSES, AND CHILDREN…but even with these differences in the facts of our lives, I loved the new memoir called “Made for You and Me” by 30-something wife and mother Caitlin Shetterly. I was so glad to meet her recently in one of those chance happenings of this new-author whirlwind we both are in the exhausting midst of. Like my own story, Caitlin’s is about finding one’s true home—which is not necessarily the place where everyone thinks you belong. That is what we are discussing today over on the book blog: the notion of where do you find, or feel at, home? Meet Caitlin, and win her book (or mine) in the process, perhaps.

I know though that for some though there is a need to be rooted somewhere as so many feel rootless, so indeed a very good question.
I have your book, Margaret and use it often. Well, I will if it ever warms up! Ms. Shetterly’s book sounds fabulous. Thanks for sharing it.
Welcome, Jeannie. Nice of you to be in touch and say so! Hope to see you soon.
Count me in :)
