:: happy anniversary and a give-away! ::

August 23, 2011

For those of you who regularly read my posts, you may have noticed a bit of an obsession with Soule Mama (AKA Amanda Blake Soule).  I was first introduced to her blog nearly two years ago as I was venturing into the world of Waldorf living.  I was instantly captivated by her writing and her ability to find joy and wonderment in every single day.  Her attitude and outlook was the inspiration behind my foray into blogging a little over a year ago (hence the ‘happy anniversary’ part of the title).

Not only had I read her blog, but I also had enjoyed her first two books: The Creative Family and Handmade Home.  When she announced that her newest book, The Rhythm of Family, was available for purchase I bought not just one copy, but two!  I want to share the joy of living simply, thoughtfully and wholesomely.  Since SouleMama was the kickoff for my venture into not only a different parenting style, but a different outlook on life, I figured it would be an appropriate gift to give .

Following the course of a year, this book explores the ways we can create deep family connections and meaningful memories through living in tune with the cycles of nature […] from the rhythms of the seasons comes the rhythms in our homes, our hearts, our families and our every day. (excerpt from inside cover)
