Don't be afraid to invite someone over, to welcome them in, no matter how your house looks or if the throw pillows match.
My friend @jessicanturner empowers women to take back the pockets of time they already have in their day in order to practice self-care and do the things they love. I love how she encourages women to use these fringe hours to cultivate friendships, too!
Her book #TheFringeHours would be a great summer read, if you're looking for a book for the beach or pool: http://amzn.to/2sRNWoi (I temporarily put this link in my profile so you can easily click through and learn more!) #HeartFriendsFriday #FringeHours

"But fear only holds us hostage from a better life. It prevents us from pursuing things that would bring us immense joy and satisfaction. Instead of just doing them, we procrastinate and make excuses, and ultimately fear holds us captive." @jessicanturner The Fringe Hours ๐ŸŒŸ Story of my life PS: I love reading in bed with my bedroom window open and a cool May breeze floating in....city sounds in the distance. #thefringehours

When you walk into a book store and see two women's books, whom you admire, sitting on the shelf. ๐Ÿ˜ #goals #breakingbusy #thefringehours

You know that moment when you realize as a wife & a mother, that 100% of your day is focused on those you love and take care of? Laundry, groceries, making sure that little human you love stays alive, fed and happy.
I'm not much of a reader, actually I can think of a million other things I would rather do than read, but this year I decided to spend More time in a state of rest. Away from technology, social media and tv screens. Giving myself a chance to decompress, breathe and unwind. My sweet friend, Karen, with @intentionalhome has started a book club and yup, that is what I'm going to do with my "me time"
I'm really loving this book by @jessicanturner #thefringehours

As a SAHM (without a maid, darn it), my work surrounds me. Always.
But my soul craves things besides poopy pants and stacks of shoes by the door.

What's a chick to do?
Write anyway!
Dream anyway!
Learn anyway!
Feed the soul anyway!
So this morning I shooed my kids to the basement to watch a movie so I can write.

@jessicanturner would flash a thumbs up, I'm pretty sure. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ Her book #thefringehours kicked my butt in the best way. ๐Ÿ“š
What feeds YOUR soul?
What makes you come alive and feel like a million bucks? Or even a crisp $20? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

No doubt about it, this gift set is a Christmas favorite for all your girlfriends. (And ssshhh, it's on sale!) #TheFringeHours // Available at DaySpring.com.

How fun is this? My friend @jessicanturner's book #TheFringeHours is now available in @target!! We are totally toasting her tonight with the cookie treats she sent to celebrate! So fun!!


I really just need to dive into both and see which one holds me the longest - have you read either of these? ๐Ÿ” I want to hear that one of them has CHANGED your LIFE so I know which one to commit to ๐Ÿ˜‚ #bluezones #thefringehours #NationalBookLoversDay

A little sunshine & iced coffee goes a long way on a Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! #monday #planning

I was at the park earlier today one of the neighbours kids was wearing a t-shirt which said "If you can dream it, you can do it." Apparently it's a Walt Disney quote. It's getting late here and I'm working and learning and trying to figure out how to make the impossible happen. What have you been told can't be done? What are you doing to make it happen anyway? #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #liveauthentic #mumblogger #mumpreneur #thehappynow #thefringehours

To all the ladies in my life:

Get this book.
The Fringe Hours. .
I found this book to be the kick in the pants that I needed to make sure that I am giving myself time. Time to create. Time to enjoy. Time to relax. Time to read. Time for anything that I want to do. .
Mama guilt is real and it rears its ugly head way too often. Sometimes we have to learn to let it go and take time for ourselves.
The Fringe Hours gives amazing ideas of how to carve out that time for ourselves, why it's important for us women to make time and how to change our perspectives.
Ladies. It's a good read! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

This is what my night looks like tonight.

I'm so guilty of not making enough time for myself. I get so caught up in the hustle of work, life and being a mom that sometimes I neglect my self care. Not good. If there's one thing I've learned lately, it's that I can't pour from an empty cup.

It's time for a new read, and a relaxing bath full of oils & a Lavender bath bomb. So needed tonight. โค๏ธ #mommytime #selfcare #thefringehours

I'm reading a book called The Fringe Hours and it's about making time for yourself in our crazy busy world!
Well one of the topics is spending time on hobbies. So I had to stop and think about what my hobbies are. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Between having a baby that zaps my brain and all my energy and not having spent any time on hobbies for awhile, I really had to think about it!
But it didn't take too long once I realized how much I had missed baking! So today I whipped up some muffins and strawberry shortcake! And it felt great! Like getting a piece of me back!

Have you read #thefringehours book? Traveling with kids can be stressful and loud and busy. Our girls are 3 and 5 now and have just started learning how to keep themselves entertained as well as each other. Working on this needlework project while resolving quarrels and opening snacks makes the long drive more bearable โœ‚๏ธ๐ŸŽถ

Being a mother is hard.
Being my own boss is hard.
Being a wife is hard.
Finding time for myself is hard.
All these things are hard but all these things are also worth it. #worthit
I may not get a full 30 mins at one time to read my favorite books #thedoctrineandcovenants #teachingsofthepresidentsofthechurch #personaldevelopment
So I find those little pockets of time to read a verse, a chapter, something to calm my mind and feel peace to help me through the day.
Being a mom is worth it.
Being my own boss is worth it.
Being the wife of an amazingly awesome man is worth it.

I do make time for myself so I can be the best I can be for my family and my business โค๏ธ #createyourlifeproject2017 #theheartdynasty #itisworthit #thefringehours #pocketsoftime

Finally have some down time to read this book. #woohoo #Thefringehours #delayedflight

This statement, from The Fringe Hours, is so very true & why I took a week off social media! #thefringehours #timemanagement

Reading The Fringe Hours by @jessicanturner I'm loving this book. It reminds me of #saygoodbyetosurvivalmode I enjoy the workbook aspect of it to. It's nice to have a place to process what you are learning. It's also nice to think about the things that fill me up & finding ways to fit those into my day. You should check it out!! @whitneysgully I think you'd enjoy this one too! #thefringehours #books #booknerd #reading #readingchallenge2017

Wishing my to-do list was blank๐Ÿ˜ฉ It's not though, and that's ok. I read a statement yesterday to write 6 of your priorities down and rank them. Then cross out 2-6. ๐Ÿ˜ณ I was a little hesitant at first but after I thought about it I realized it's not likely that you will do 6 major tasks in one day aside from regular work and home tasks. Don't max out on tasks, max out on what matters. We create margin for magic when we eliminate excess. Do what matters๐Ÿ˜˜
