January Mood Board

It’s January, mid January at that. So far this month, I feel like I have a lot of ideas and motivation. I’ve been reading Chip & Joanna Gaines’ book The Magnolia Story. It’s truly been inspiring. I like to think that if Joanna and I were to ever meet, we’d be quick friends. I feel like we’re a lot alike in the way our minds work. Now, I’m in no way saying I’m as creative or talented as she is, I’m just saying our thought process seems to be alike in ways. I’ve always wanted my own little (tea) shop, and this month, reading this book has left me inspired and motivated and creatively thinking, which is always a good thing in my books! These are a few things and spaces that I’ve found to set  the mood for my mind-set this month. What’s inspired you? What are things that help you get motivated? Hope you enjoy what’s inspired me!

Summer Reading List

As you all well know, I love books and summertime is my favorite time to read. So here are a few books I’m hoping to get read this summer! 

Here’s my list for this summer:

1. The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews

MKA is another one of my sister and I’s favorites! If you want a funny, summer read, I suggest MKA! Start out with one of the Savannah books, they’re a great read. I’m so excited about this new one!


2.  The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand

My sister and I have been on a bit of a Elin Hilderbrand kick lately, we’ve enjoyed her different way of writing! We just finished up Beautiful Day by her, and it was a truly good book. There are many of hers I’m excited to read, but I don’t want this whole list to turn into all of her books! 


3. Five Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit by Nicki Koziarz

My friend from work encouraged me to read this one, so I’m excited to see what it has in store.

4. Promise of the Wolves by Dorothy Hearst

If you know me at all, you know I have a passion for Wolves and so naturally this story intrigues me. It was a no-brainer to add to the list.

5. A Window Opens by Elisabth Egan

I chose this book because it was compared to Maria Semple’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette? A book I loved. So of course I can’t wait to read it!

6. A Severe Mercy by Shelden Vanauken


I fell in love with this book the very first time I read it, and have been wanting to re-read it ever since I put it down. I like to re-read books I really loved and this was definitely one of my top 10 favorite books! 
So there’s a little peak into some of the books I’ll be reading this summer. What are you reading this summer? Do you have any recommendations?
