Free Kindle Books: The Leopard Tree, Ballet Flats And More

Kindle July 21 1

What’s not to love about ballet flats? Effortless style, and comfort all rolled into one.
My ballet flats pattern is designed for casual wear indoors, but can be just as easily adapted for wearing outside by using a more robust fiber for the base, such as jute.
The ballet flats look stylish using two colors, but also look sophisticated in a single color – the choice is yours.

Imagine coming home from work to find that your children have spray painted a giant, colorful portrait of a crouching, pooping dog on your driveway. Or a family argument that takes place in the comments section of one of your Facebook friends posts.
The How-Not-To Guide To Parenting and Marriage is a collection of humorous short stories written by a well-intentioned, but definitely far from perfect father and husband. These tales of triumph and woe offer a hilarious, and certainly unique perspective on the parenting and marriage war front.
