Meet Diana!

If you love picture books – and reading with – and to – your kids as much as we do, you should check out local mom, Diana Blau’s first children’s book – Beary & Tinker – Young at Heart! Inspired to write after her own daughter showed so much interest in her and her husband’s childhood teddy bears, this story is one any child – or adult – would love, and tells the story from the perspective of the bears having the chance to play once again! In her spare time, Diana loves traveling, with a special love for Hawaii, Nantucket and Italy. She loves buttered toast, the show Never Have I Ever, and dreams of a world more tolerant of all differences than the one we are raising our children in today. Diana’s story shows It is never too late to follow your heart and go for something new. Congrats on the launch; we are thrilled to have another great book in our library!

Paris Hilton’s Mom Era: 6 Reasons We’re Loving It

Paris Hilton is currently promoting her show Paris in Love, which airs on Peacock, and chronicles her self-proclaimed “Mom Era”…and what an era it is. Just over two years ago, in November 2021, she married venture capitalist Carter Reum, and quickly welcomed son Phoenix (born in January 2023) and daughter London (whose birth was announced at Thanksgiving, both via surrogate. It’s certainly a different Paris than OG fans from the 90s and ‘00s remember; nights out with pals like Britney Spears and the Greek shipping heir boyfriend of the month are now replaced by nights in with a nanny and Carter, aside from the occasional work trip.

When is the best time to Install a New Roof?

When is the best time to Install a New Roof?

When is the best time to install a new roof? This is a question commonly asked among homeowners. Brown Roofing shared their thoughts with us! Many think their roof is “fine” or in “good condition” and replacement can be pushed off until another week, month, or year, but this is not always the case. Due to inflation and material shortages, it is almost guaranteed that prices will rise no matter where you go (roughly 5% a year). So when it comes to “when should I replace my roof”?, the truth is It is typically a few years before you even knew you needed it.
