A New Mug + Book Reviews

So many good things in that photo! Earlier this month, my friend Aleks and I visited the Vistaprint "VP On the Road" truck in Chicago. They were generously giving out free credit to small business owners. I was able to use that credit to order a banner for possible Dearly Quilt Company house shows and markets, a logo stamp and labels, this super duper awesome logo mug and some adorable floral notecards. (Give me floral everything right now!) Visiting that truck and experiencing their customer service in person - plus seeing them give away over $100 in credit to EACH business owner that stopped by their truck - made me appreciate Vistaprint in an entirely new way. (This isn't an ad! Sharing because I appreciated their generosity to my small biz.)

AND, can I talk about how excited I was to get my hands on these two brand new books by Shauna Niequist and Lysa TerKeurst? They were released last week and hit the #1 and #2 slots on the New York Times best sellers list.

Shauna's book Present Over Perfect is focused on pushing for connection, meaning and depth over settling for busy and perfection. After finding herself exhausted and isolated, Shauna was sick of being tired, burned out and busy. This book is an invitation to a journey that changed her life - the journey away from frantic pushing and proving, toward a path to find the person you were created to be before you began proving and earning for your worth. I have read other books by Shauna and truly love her writing style. She has a way of weaving words that is absolutely artistic. Vulnerability is found in her pages, and this book is no different. It's a collection of essays filled to the brim with stories soaked in grace. Seeing her speak at The Influence Conference a couple years ago and at the Belong Tour in Columbus, Ohio last weekend increased my love of Shauna! She's so real and genuine, and it shows in her speaking and in this book! I highly recommend this book.

And next up! Lysa's book, Uninvited. I can't wait to share my review with you soon.
