TGIF! Happiest Mothers Day Weekend!
I understand that Mother’s Day is also a very difficult time for a variety of reasons and if that’s you, you’re not alone. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
It’s one of those gloomy, dreary mornings in Louisville and since I’m just getting started on my post for today, I thought I would share a several books that you may enjoy reading. If you’re an Amazon Prime member- take advantage of the same day delivery option and read your way through the weekend 🙂

I feel as though I’m making my Mother proud by simply reading A Guide to Elegance. 🙂 What a great little read- I’ll be passing this one down to my lovely almost sixteen year old bonus daughter. I think many of these rules still apply today, though there’s many areas that could use some serious improvement on my part. There’s just one part I wholeheartedly disagree with Madame Dariaux on- she draws a strict line through the following pieces of clothing: shift dresses, giant prints and TUNICS. Say whaaaa??? #Ilovethose
I ordered Capture Your Style last week and I’ve read it cover to cover twice. The author is a fashion blogger named Aimee Song who takes the most gorgeous Instagram photos ever- using her Iphone. Regardless of whether you’re attempting to curate the perfect little Instagram reel, I thought it was a great little read and great coffee table book to have laying around. There’s great photography tips and tricks inside too 🙂
Speaking of Instagram, I posted a photo of She Means Business to my Instagram account and wait for it….. my girl crush AKA Carrie Green actually commented back (I did tag her… but you know, still) !!! I had the probably one of the biggest fangirl moments ever- this may be one of my favorite books I’ve ever read. There’s advice, exercises, motivation, encouragement and tips to help you stay on track with your business and I find myself resorting back to her book daily. I LOVE this book!!!
7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess was originally my sisters book that she handed down to me. Oh my gosh it was such a good read. The author, Jen Hatmaker, took seven months, identified seven areas of excess in her life and then made seven choices to help rid herself of excess. I actually found myself laughing at times- there’s humor and then serious topics and I feel very convicted to rid of the excess in my life. About mid way through- the girls and I got several laundry baskets together of toys from the basement that they have either outgrown or no longer play with and made several trips to Goodwill. I did the same with my closet- highly recommend this book, and thanks to my sister for letting me borrow 🙂
How to Murder Your Life is a new release, and I’m currently on about page 16. I can’t remember exactly where I first saw this book but there was a “books you must read in 2017” type of thing online and this was on that list. I thought I would include it in this post in case you want to read along too. So far… so good.
That’s a wrap for today, friends! Enjoy your weekend! XO
