Weekly Wrap-up

Now imagine yourself living in a space that contains only things that spark joy. Isn’t this the lifestyle you dream of? —Marie Kondo, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up


Marie Kondo. She must have heard that we've chosen The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up as our January Book Club read, because she's releasing its companion book on January 5th. Not the magic wand we were wishing for, but hopefully Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up will be the next best thing.

You. For understanding that this whole blogging thing is new to us and we didn't anticipate how hard it would be to combine our chronic Christmas overachieving and keeping up on the blog. Here's to getting better at this in 2016.

Did we mention you? For managing not to roll your eyes when we say, yet again, that we didn't get to that review of The Gifts of Imperfection. By we, I mean me (Rachel). I'm the lone culprit in this debacle. There are few books that I want everyone I know to read. This is one of them and yet I can't manage to sit down and write a proper review. Again, I'm only in the beginning stages of my recovery when it comes to my chronic overdoing at Christmas. Clearly, I have a long way to go.

New books. We hope your Christmas was lovely and you found a book or two or three under your tree yesterday morning. Tracy gave me one I hadn't heard of via one of our most trusted sources for recommendations. I can't wait to dive into A Song for Issy Bradley.


Book Club Mondays. Details on how our little online book club is going to work.

I'm not even going to say a review of The Gifts of Imperfection because that would just be embarrassing.
