I usually end my days with a cup of tea and a good book. After what are usually days filled with a blend of good, bad and just plain chaotic, it's always pacifying to look forward to my nights for that reason.
When we look back at our years in life, I bet you can think of a book that will instantly transport you back to a moment in time.
Take a walk down memory lane with me...
Do any of these look familiar to you?
What memories these bring just by looking at the cover of each book.
Now that I'm a mother, it's heartwarming to see my children's eyes light up as we read books together.
My wish for them is that they will continue on throughout the years with the same passion for the written word as they do now.
One of our favourites in the home, that is practically read every night is I'll Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.
"I'll love your forever. I'll like you for always. As long as you're living. My baby you'll be."
As the years progress and our literary appetites transition, one thing is for certain:
"Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life."

There is just something about the feel and smell of a real book that can not be replaced. Do you agree?
