This weekend I plan to watch more of the online knife skills course I’m taking. I hope to make it to the Farmer’s Market, and I’m looking forward to hanging out poolside with friends. I also intend on starting a new book.
Whatever your plans for the weekend, I hope you enjoy it, and be sure to include this week’s Recommend Reading; links to articles, post, etc. that are meant to encourage, inspire and motivate you towards success in life, starting at home.
I loved Emily Henderson’s 1 Bookcase 4 Ways series. It has inspired me to play around with the styling on my black bookcase. But, when you read the series, and especially after watching the gifs (you’ll see what that is in her posts) I want you to take away some encouragement: Even professionals arrange and rearrange until they get it right.
Including Joanna Gaines as she shares in this Popsugar article, 16 Things You Didn’t Know About Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines. Fact number 3 made me smile because it reminds me of Matt and me. In fact, Chip and Joanna as a couple remind me of us. I think you’ll really enjoy the article, especially if you watch the show.
There are few things that make me feel like my day was a success: making the bed, getting dressed, but mostly cooking for my family. And, that’s why I just love what Edie from Life in Grace had to say about that,
You don’t need to change the world. Just make dinner. It’s practically the same thing.”

Sometimes I need a little inspiration to motivate me to spend more time on my hobbies. This clever idea made me want to get outside and organize my gardening tools…and garden.
And this antique french dresser made me gasp. I LOVE the colors and am determined to get out my paints and recreate the look.
and last but not least, Life Inspiration…
Life is not always warm and fuzzy, but that is what makes it life. Marty from Marty’s Musings shares 9 Tools for Surviving a Crisis. They are all tools that I’ve used and can attest to.
And of course, having a support system is helpful, too. Watching these kids rally around a classmate was like medicine to my soul. Not much that is intended to make you cry actually does that for me, but this video brought tears to my eyes.
Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you class.
