Perfect Parties: Testosterone Edition

I admit it: with two girls, my parties are a little skewed toward the feminine.

To Raise Happy Kids, Put Your Marriage First

Here’s what’s next on my must-read list: To Raise Happy Kids, Put Your Marriage First by David Code. The title alone sells me on the book, as this is a philosophy I firmly believe in.
