Today is an exciting day for Becky at Raising Loveliness; she has just published an inspirational e-book for moms, titled, Awakening Wonder: Discovering Delight in Everyday Moments. I am pleased (and somewhat shocked- I mean, you’ve read some of my swear-y, complain-y posts, right?) to be one of 27 contributors to this uplifting and FREE e-book! Yes, you read that right- it’s free!


If you need a pick-me-up, or a reminder to look around you and find beauty and joy in your everyday lives, I encourage you to stop by and grab your FREE copy here! There are some fantastic mamas featured- Carisa Miller, Lindsey Mead, and none other than Kristi Campbell of Finding Ninee, to name a few! Here is a sample of my advice to moms about how to nurture themselves:


To further celebrate the launch day, many of the contributors have shared a photo or two of a moment that brought them joy or delight; you can check mine out, along with many others at Raising Loveliness: What a Wonderful World.

In case you’re too lazy busy to do that, here’s my supercool photo of a spider with her egg sac that my girls and I discovered on our porch one afternoon. It was truly amazing. There’s another one of my toddler looking at it. That one’s pretty cute- come to think of it, you better go over there and check it out. IMG_2781


And don’t forget- tomorrow is Finish the Sentence Friday- stop by and link up your post about the best part of your summer! We will be live at 10:00 EST tonight. Hoping your day is full of wonder- or at the very least, isn’t full of whining, poop, or vomit.
