The Limited Edition Cook’s Box from Sweet Reads Box: Baking Day πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received The Cook’s Box from Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

A baker bakes 73,247 baguettes in a year and sells each for $2.73. What does he make?

Bread.

Sweet Reads Box August 2020

I received the August Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

I’m not outdoorsy in the least but the past few weeks I’ve been reading on our back deck and the warm breeze and the change of scenery have brought my “me time” to a new level. For years we’ve only had three camping chairs for the four of us (ridiculous, I know) but we finally invested in some outdoor pieces my bestie spotted on Facebook Marketplace and it’s been a game-changer.
