It's time for another edition of Quick Lit! I am so excited about the books I'm sharing this month. We have inspiring handcrafts, an ancient Greek love story, balm for a divided America, and one very resourceful Marsh Girl.
Some of you may remember that last month I started a new gratitude practice. We’ve all heard about the far-reaching benefits of gratitude (it’s been found to boost happiness, strengthen relationships and more) but keeping a gratitude journal can seem like just one more thing to do. Accountability can help cement a new habit, so simply by sharing a bit of my list here, I’m actually boosting the chances that I will continue making gratitude a regular practice in my life. Why don’t you join me?
I first heard about Squam Art Workshops way back in 2009. I had recently started my (old) blog and I read about this magical retreat where women were gathering — there were photos of cabins huddled around a New Hampshire lake, and founder Elizabeth Duvivier described the accommodations as being like "champagne in a tin cup." Perfect.
It's the beginning of a new school year, and that means a shift in routines for many of us — with or without kids. I love fall something fierce, but the transition into this season can be a tricky one. To create a more intentional (and hopefully more pleasurable) early fall, I've been rethinking the way I approach my days.
Welcome to another edition of Quick Lit, where, joining with Modern Mrs. Darcy, I share a few of the books I've been reading lately. This month I have six titles to share that I love (and hope you will, too).
We've all heard that gratitude can do us good — expressing a thankful appreciation of what we receive has been shown to boost happiness, improve health, strengthen relationships, and help us deal better with adversity.
The cusp of August is a good time to hit the pause button. To help us find more time to sink into simple summer pleasures — like reading good books, eating popsicles on the porch, and collecting seashells.
Curious about tiny homes? Let me spark your imagination with these five tiny Airbnbs from across the United States. They all look like so much fun, it makes me want to go on a tiny house cross-country tour!
Today I'm joining Modern Mrs. Darcy in sharing a few of the books I've been reading — and loving — so far this summer. In early June, my little family took a trip back to the east coast, which meant I've had an extra-helping of reading time this month.
Are you as enthralled with tiny house living as I am? If so, I think you're going to love the home we're peeking into today. The screened-in dining area is so adorable I can’t even.
