Today, I am bringing you a different post. I am talking about being “so close to amazing”, a party, giveaways and a book you need to put on your “must read” list.
Before you think I have lost my mind, hear me out.
Have you ever had a time in your life when you thought you had it all together and found out you didn’t have it together at all? Have you ever met someone for the first time and after a full conversation found out you had lipstick on your teeth the whole time? Have you ever met a friend out for dinner and realize halfway through the night that your shirt was on backwards?
Moments like these are “so close to amazing” moments that need to be celebrated. We all have them. We are all amazing and bring our “fabulousness” wherever we go, but sometimes, we fall short. Just think of your last Pinterest fail. You had all the supplies to create that beautiful project and halfway through, you gave up because nothing was going right.
So, what’s all of this talk about?
I am one of 13 bloggers who are part of the launch team for the book, “So Close To Amazing” by one of my blogging idols, KariAnne Wood from Thistlewood Farms.
I first talked about this book when I wrote about the four letter word that will change your life. Once the launch team formed, we were supposed to read a chapter of the book each week and then we would come together with KariAnne on a Facebook Live session. I took the book to the pool one day with the kids and read the entire thing that day. Ooops! I couldn’t put it down. I found myself talking out loud and laughing out loud throughout the entire book. This woman who I thought had it all together; the perfect blog, the perfect house, the perfect decorating, etc. … was just like me! She had so many “so close to amazing” moments in her life that made her even more loveable than what I knew from reading her blog for so long. The book also made me realize that I need to celebrate my “so close” moments a little more.
If you are already hooked, the book comes out on September 5th. If you pre-order it by September 4th, you will receive some amazing bonuses! You can pre-order HERE.
