The mundane. {And a reading list}

"Many of us feel that if we slow down even the tiniest bit, we will no longer be productive." 

"We fear our lives will be meaningless if we aren't constantly striving for something bigger and better. " 

"Yet when we finally stop chasing those impossible standards and surrender our fears, we truly become productive in what matters." 

"We experience genuine fulfillment; an imperfect yet intentional life, driven by a clear, core purpose. 

I'm a collector of mundane moments.  They're my favorite kind of moment actually.  Always have been and Lara's book talks about how great they can be.  It's a good one to pick up if you're looking for something good to read.

Here's a few more if you're looking for something to flip through this summer at the pool, the beach, on your deck, in your bed, on the couch, in your yard, or in the kitchen while you're waiting for dinner to finish cooking (who does that?  nice thought though).

Just the title of this book makes me happy.  Sorry if you can't relate.  

Reading this now and can't. down.

I read two chapters of this and am waiting for my dad to finish it so I can borrow it from him.  Those two chapters were amazing.  

I didn't expect to love this as much as I did.  It's so fun, easy to read, and has incredible quotes about fashion, makeup, infertility, and how amazing being a mama is.  One of my favorites……and one that moms everywhere should adopt as they proudly proclaim first and foremost when someone asks them what they do, "I'm a mom."

"This is not a kingdom I'm embarrassed to rule over.  I rule powerfully here.  With grace and elegance and mercy.  And sometimes false lashes. This is a season in my life.  This is my chance to be somebody's mother, to make my home my castle, and I'm so honored to do it.  This sovereignty, this kingdom, this is a gift." 

This book is rather old but I don't hear many people talk about and I don't know why.  It's amazing. Creepy, suspenseful, and thought provoking…..and twins can be crazy!  It's so good.  

Summer is so close--which can be full of delightful mundane moments all mixed in with fantastic ones. We can't wait over here!
