My Review: 

 Honest, down to earth, humorous and inspiring, Life is Too Short is the perfect read for a quiet rainy day. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is always nice to see another woman's perspective on life. I love that Connie was so open and real about what it is to be a woman, a mom, and a wife. Life is too Short is arranged in three main sections, womanhood, wifehood and motherhood. Every section is comprised of  many short essays that offer tips, reflections and humor. Enjoy reading all in one sitting or read snippets curled up on the couch by a crackling fire place with a cup of tea, or hiding out in the bathroom from the chaos of home/family life. I really appreciate that there is an essay for just about any woman to relate too. One great take away I got from the book was that life indeed is much too short to sweat the little stuff. Be who you are, enjoy life and live one moment at a time.

Now this sounds like a great rain day book! Just what a dreary day (or week) needs. Sounds like a great pick me up!
