Some days we are so amazing, aren’t we? We hit the floor running and the to-do list almost completes itself! We make great choices, our family loves everything we do, we get the kids to school on time – WITH healthy lunches packed and smiles all around. (bask in the glow)
And then some days, the alarm didn’t go off, the kids don’t wanna get out of bed, the house looks like an F-5 tornado passed through it, the kids are lucky to get gummy bears and cheez-it’s thrown into a bag for lunch and your 10 year old tells you *as you’re walking out to the van* that he’s “so sorry, but he totally forgot that he has to bring 26 cupcakes to class to school today for a class party”. (there’s not enough coffee in the world to fix this morning. bless.)

(OH….and pssst…there’s a GIVEAWAY at the bottom of this post!) 😉
So close to amazing.
I want to show you something.
In my hand, there’s a book. And I think you might need this book.
I needed this book, too. More than I could have ever imagined.
I’d like to introduce you to my friend, KariAnne.
I met her at Haven (a blogging and DIY conference that I went to this summer) – and immediately fell head over heels for her. 😀 I mean, I already loved her writing style and her blog makes me drool…but to meet her in person (she was my mentor at Haven!)…well…I was smitten.
KariAnne isn’t one of those “big bloggers” who has let her success go to her head. Nope. She’s one of the most down-to-earth, genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I know you’ll love her, too.
She has written this book and I simply must share it with you. I don’t usually say much about what I’m reading unless it’s impacted me so much that I can’t help but share it.
This is one of those books.
KariAnne had me laughing out loud before I even got through the introduction and then a couple chapters in, I was wiping tears as she poured out her heart onto these pages.
And ya’ll. She even shares some of her DIYs in here!! *insert all the heart eyes*
It comes out on September 5th and is sure to be your most favorite fall read. A book you’ll reach for again and again.
AND if you pre-order it *before September 4, 2017* through Amazon, you get their price guarantee – which basically just means that if the price drops at any time before the book launch, you are sure to get the cheapest price possible. I love that about pre-ordering through Amazon!
AND (another and) – when you pre-order (remember, order BEFORE 9/4/17) you get some fabulous bonuses! Check them out!

Oh, and between you and me…
That gummy bear and cheez its lunch? They’ll be ok, momma.
Give yourself grace.
Hug those kids when they come home from school and laugh about the crazy morning you had. Life’s gonna throw you a curveball once in a while. Laugh in the face of the disaster and peel off that stuck-on gummy bear.
Some days are amazing…and some days…we’re so close.
And it’s all good.
