Isn’t it incredible when a friend dreams big?

When they reach for the stars and the moon and a few random galaxies…

….and something amazing shows up?

That’s how I feel about this book.

It made me laugh and sigh and think and it inspired me and filled my heart and made me the proudest of the proud.

I can’t help it.

You see….I’m kind of its aunt….

….because its authors are my long-long sisters.

I met Heather and Vanessa long ago in a land far away when we all started blogging and our hair was a lot bigger.

We bonded immediately over red lipstick and shiny, blingy flip flops.

So when they told me they were writing a book I literally screamed for joy and told them that this was the book they were born to create.

And I was right.

There are 223 pages of joy.

Enough for every season.

Pages where they share their faith and their hearts and their struggles and their triumphs….

….and their blackberry pie.

And their scrabble art work.

And their DIY ruler tray.

And their beautiful spring bouquet in a can.

And their wood slice plant markers.

To quote my niece, the book, she says….

“You are cordially invited to each day, week and season of life.”

And that’s what I took away from the book.  That’s the message that it left me with.  And I needed to hear it.  There are days when I feel like freight trains downtown.  I’m rushing and huffing and puffing and running through life at break neck speed.  I need a little more slowing down.

And stopping.

And breathing.

And savoring.

Thanks for the reminder, sisters.

I always knew you were the smart ones in the family. 🙂

    Timely.... I feel like I need to exude more joy. I tend to get grumpy with my kids, the dogs...my {first} husband who believes our trash guys offer garage to curb and curb to garage service every week. Have you seen the suitcase episode on Everyone Loves Raymond? PS Your photo tutorial.. the curves... I never would have found that feature .. it's changed my life .. if you are ever in Colorado... xo xo laura

    I will never forget your running commentary in the back of the car as we were trying to get through downtown Atlanta at the very first Haven conference. LOL!! We had just officially 'met' and yet there was no doubt that you were family and that feeling has only deepened through the years as we have supported and cheered each other on through all of the adventures this blogging journey has taken us on. We love you sweet 'sister' and can't thank you enough for your incredibly thoughtful review of 'Life in Season'. xoxo Vanessa and Heather

    It is definitely true that we all need to take a breath and slow down sometimes. It allows us to enjoy what we are doing more; whether it be spending time with family, redecorating your home, or even simple chores!

    It looks wonderful!!! I will look it up!!! I have a growing pile of books to read and I feel SO HAPPY to meet wonderful people (authors) that have amazing things to share! I working through my pile and made it a priority to start my day reading :) I don't have kids at home anymore so I can do that first thing in the morning. I would prefer having my son at home (great times) but hey, that's a positive thing about having a grown up child: I have more free time to read! Thank you for sharing, darling! Mwah ?
