Day #25: I Am In LOVE TNMBN Giveaway Event

It's Day 25 of the event and today's 
review & giveaway is brought to you by Savy Mommy Moments.
Are you a mom looking for a book you can actually relate to? (Yes, there are a lot of "parenting books" that claim this).  Then I encourage you to check out Must.Have.Wine. A Toast to Motherhood!
It’s a modern moms’ mantra, no matter what type of day we’re having; when we’ve come to the end of our rope, had the best day ever, or simply just want to unwind.
Along with that glass of wine, we find comfort in knowing other moms are going through the same things we are. Must. Have. Wine. A Toast to Motherhood, is a collection of relatable stories by everyday moms assuring that none of us are perfect and we’re all in this crazy race together.
If you’re looking for a reason to pour that glass of wine tonight, we’ve got 81 reasons you should!  
  • Always feeling guilty about something you did or didn’t do? “Guilt Will Always Be There, Let Love Triumph” is the story for you! See Reason #4.
  • Tired of your hubby putting the moves on you when all you need is another hour of sleep? Been there! You must read “Midnight Lovin’!”  See Reason #58.
  • Is the constant wailing from your colicky baby enough to make you want to lock yourself in the closet and bawl your eyes out?  Read another mother’s colic survival story in “This Too Shall Pass.” See Reason #37.
  • Think you’re the only mom who can’t brave the McDonald’s playland slide to save your toddler? You’ll laugh out loud when you read “I’m Not Lovin’ It!” See Reason #15.
With savvy wit and a healthy dose of reality, Must.Have.Wine. A Toast to Motherhood. takes you on the emotional journey we all experience as mothers, while gracefully offering advice and an aura of camaraderie. Each chapter offers stories that complement the ups and downs of this wondrous and challenging role we’re all living:
Chapter 1 inspires—Let go of your mommy guilt and embrace your imperfections!
Chapter 2 amuses—Laugh out loud as you are reminded of the funnies from your own zany life with young children.
Chapter 3 encourages—In our darkest of days it’s comforting to know we will survive.
Chapter 4 delights—Giggle at the fun and often cute moments of motherhood.
Chapter 5 relieves—For those stressful and frustrating times…know that you’re not alone.
Chapter 6 indulges—Sweet tales remind us why we’re blessed to be moms.
   Whether you’re headed to a baby shower, looking for a holiday gift, or buying for a friend’s birthday—Must.Have.Wine. makes the perfect gift for any mommy in your life: your sister, your best friend, or even…yourself.
Together, let’s raise our glasses to toast the laughter, the tears, and this zaniness we call motherhood.

SMM Review:
Immediately upon opening this book, I could tell I was going to enjoy it.  The chapters are each split out based on a "theme" and then paired with a wine that has the attributes that match the chapter. As I read through each story, I felt that I could easily relate to the writer as I had experienced, as a mom, many of the same or similar situations.  There were chapters that made me laugh so hard I cried and others that reminded me how precious life can be.  There are stories of incomprehensible strength and courage that made me proud of the mother who wrote them and those that made me embarrassed along with them.  Over the course of reading the entire book, I felt a wide range of emotions and in the end I grew as a mother and woman.  I will carry many of these stories with me as a reminder to what is truly important in life and that although things aren't always perfect or how you imagined them, it's the way you react that matters the most.  This book will be passed on to many mothers I know, including my own, as I too think everyone can benefit from it. In the end, we mothers are all the same, as we love our children and are their advocates forever.
