Product Description:
"Nearly everyone thinks their own family is "nutty" or has at least one or two nuts. With 101 stories of wacky yet lovable relatives, funny foibles, and holiday meltdowns, this book is usually hilarious and occasionally poignant. This book shows readers that we all have the same family matters and what really matters is families. It is a quirky and fun holiday book, and a great bridal shower or wedding gift! "

What we thought: Okay, so if you've read any of our other reviews of CSFS books, you know I'm a fan:) Family Matters cemented my love of this series even more! This book is light-hearted, funny and uplifting. The stories in this book will make you laugh and brighten your day, while at the same time make you realize everyone has family issues, not just you! These stories are totally relatable! We really enjoyed this addition to the CSFS collection. It would make the perfect holiday gift for family members this year:) ABCD Diaries gives Family Matters an A+!!

  1. I think this is one of the best series of books written by "normal" people with stories that warm the heart and practical advice that can work if you use it.
