In Case You Missed It:
Happy Friday, GEM readers!
The weeks are just flying by around here. I don’t know about you all, but I cannot believe that we are just about to the half-way point of 2015! It seems like we were just saying Happy New Year, doesn’t it?
Anyway, here’s a quick look at some of the top stories we shared this week in case you didn’t have time to peek.
This week, we talked about some great gift ideas for Dads and Grads. Father’s Day is coming right around the corner – are you ready? If you’re in search of some last minute gift items, check out 10 From GEM: 10 Gifts For Dads And Grads Under $50 for some fantastic ideas!
As parents, we’re always learning as we go – especially since our kiddos didn’t come with a handbook! This week, Dave shared some of the things he’s learned in Our Story Begins: What I’ve Learned As A Single Dad.
Ever heard the saying “don’t put the cart before the horse”?
Yup, I thought so. In this week’s Monday Morning Motivation, Rene talked about this concept and how it relates to building the Good Enough Mother brand.

One of our Life Lessons this week featured Ayanna Black. Ayanna is the woman behind the revamp of GoodEnoughMother.com and has been joy to work with! She makes the complicated easy to understand and she’s there when you need her. If you have web design needs, you better call this one! Take a look at what she had to say in her Life Lessons interview!
Wendy shared some thoughts with us on a shopping trip she went on with her teenage son. If you have teenagers that may or may not have that “sense of entitlement” attitude going on, Single Mom Slice of Life: Entitlement by Proxy is a piece you won’t want to miss!
Andi shared a super sweet story about a gift that meant the world to her – and it’s NOT what you might think! Check out Live, Love, Blend: How to Win a Mother’s Heart for a tale that’s sure to warm any mom’s heart!
If you’re planning a summer vacation to the beach, Pam has a great set of books for you to bring along and she tells you about them in Moms Must Read: Beach Reads for Everyone in the Family. Of course, these can be especially fabulous for anyone heading off on a road trip too!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend, everyone!
