Happy Easter! While we were away at church the bunny left baskets filled with goodies & a new book for each of us. I can't wait to read mine! #happyeaster #colorcoded #easterbasket #newbooks #usbornebooks #billiebbrown #thesecretmermaid #sandylanestables #thestarofdeltora #thefringehours

Here lately I'm trying to fit in "me time" when I can 😏 Last night it was in the form of starting a new painting and watching Harry Potter (and staying up waaaay to late and now Momma's tired 😴). Afternoon cup of ☕️, here I come.

Not enough time in the day? Have trouble finding time to do something for you? THERE IS ENOUGH TIME YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE IT! A coworker of mine at Boeing recommended this book when I was struggling to adjust to a cross country move, new job, my boyfriends schedule getting even more hectic. This book changed my life. I highly recommend to take the time to read. I write this as I’m sitting waiting for an oil change, with my to do list and another book in hand! These are your fringe minutes to hours! Don’t waste time aimlessly, we spend so much timing waiting.. bring along something you love to pass the time! If you can’t find time to focus on yourself we can have a negative impact on those we love•

#thefringehours was one of the first personal development books I read after becoming a Mama and I still use nuggets of wisdom found in these pages 4 years later! Jessica Turner weaves inspiration, practicality for busy peeps and biblical truths together beautifully and I love that there are journaling prompts to help turn thoughts into actions. I gifted this book to a few mamas after I read it and taking it it again today reminded me I should peruse it every once in a while to be refreshed in its content!!! 📚📖📚more to come in my IG story when I can fit that in to some of my “fringe hours” today.....#mamareads #metime #creativemama #naturalwellness #bookclub #bewell

Just finished this book in my “Fringe Hours.” While the writer, @jessicanturner, is a little on the “craftsy, women’s conferencey” side of things for my personal leanings😜, the rhythms she writes about are SO IMPORTANT. What an excellent reminder to make space for the things that truly matter to us. #selfcare #bookstagram #madeforminimal #thefringehours

Ever feel like you are pouring from an empty cup? We cannot serve others unless we are pouring into ourselves first but who has time for that?
I would love to lead an online Group Book study on the Fringe Hours. This is a book designed to help women find time for themselves after taking care of EVERYTHING else around them.

Drop your fav emoji if you want to be added to
The group! We'll do a live group discussion every week on Tuesdays at 9pm for 4 weeks starting February 20th.

Here's a synopsis of the book:

Every woman has had this experience: you get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you. And if you go days, weeks, or even months in this cycle, you begin to feel like you have lost a bit of yourself.

While life is busy with a litany of must-dos--work, parenting, keeping house, grocery shopping, laundry and on and on--women do not have to push their own needs aside. Yet this is often what happens. There's just no time, right? Wrong.

In this practical and liberating book, Jessica Turner empowers women to take back pockets of time they already have in their day in order to practice self-care and do the things they love. Turner uses her own experiences and those of women across the country to teach readers how to balance their many responsibilities while still taking time to invest in themselves. She also addresses barriers to this lifestyle, such as comparison and guilt, and demonstrates how eliminating these feelings and making changes to one's schedule will make the reader a better wife, mother, and friend.

Can’t remember when or where I picked up this #book but I’m excited to get started! #bookstagram #thefringehours @jessicanturner #themomcreative #makingtimeforyou

I love this lady! ❤️ When I signed @jessicanturner to our agency in 2013, I knew that I would learn a lot working with her. Jessica puts 110% excellence into everything she does! Her first book #thefringehours was a @WSJ Bestseller and helped women rediscover the hidden pockets of time they already have for pursuing their passions. This week we were able to spend a bunch of time with her fantastic publishing team from @revellbooks, strategizing marketing for her next book. (If you are a working mom—you’ll want to stay tuned for it!) Thanks, Jessica for the impactful work you do. And thank you, Jennifer Leep, Mark Rice, Abby Van Wormer & Brianna DeWitt for investing so much energy into this partnership!

Spend time doing the small things that make you happy. Find time and if you can’t... read #thefringehours #selfcare #chaptersindigo

Working on my first book of 2018. I'm determined to spend less time mindlessly scrolling through social media/the internet and more time reading this year. 📚

"In today's busy world, the only way to have balance is to fight for it." - @JessicaNTurner from #TheFringeHours

Take some time today to sit down and go over the upcoming week...even if it's just 5 minutes, plan a time for just you.

Try to cultivate balance by: learning to say no, learning from your mistakes, evaluating what matters, and reducing your distractions.


Self-help books: you either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. I actually LOVE them! Today on the blog, I’m sharing a quick list of my favorites (some of them pictured here). Direct link in the bio. Hoppy🐰Reading!

A dear friend gifted me this book, The Fringe Hours, almost exactly one year ago when my daughter was born. I picked up the workbook at Mardel later that year but never found the time to dive in, until now. I’m convinced there was no better time than now to begin, as I’m finally finding a rhythm to this thing called motherhood and ready to embrace a more intentional lifestyle in 2018. I look forward to taking advantage of my fringe hours and reaching goals this year.

🌱Let’s talk about New Year Projections.
If you changed NOTHING in your life, where would you be exactly one year from now?
Here are mine:
🌱I will likely be wearing size 10 jeans
🌱I will likely have read 12 new books
🌱I will likely feel incredibly healthy
🌱I will likely love my job
🌱I will likely be practicing gratitude
🌱I will likely have a bunch of friends I’ve spent a year with
🥂I will likely be mentoring people in their coaching business.
Take an honest look and see if you like the course your life is taking.
If you don’t - I really have a solution that can change that for you. Drop me an emoji below to join me as a customer 👇🏻🥂 or comment “I’m interested” to join me as a coach.
I have TWO spaces left for business mentoring 🥂 Let’s make this your best year and get you past those jeans so you can LIVE your LIFE!
❌You do not have to already be fit
❌You do not have to already like where you are
❌You do not have to like what your circumstances tell you about your coming year
🌱If you’re motivated
🌱believe in other people
🌱WANT to be fit
🌱and WANT to move on in life
This could be for you 👇🏻
Love can change the world in a moment, but what do I know? 🎧 🎵 🎶
Whatcha waiting for?

Starting this book today that @leahsuburban gave me. After the busy exhausting December that I had, I need to take back my time. Thank you so much Leah! #fringehours #reading #bookworm #timemanagement #selfcare #thefringehours #book
