The One and Only by Emily Giffin
I found this book at Superstore on a best sellers table with a big 40% off sticker! The turquoise cover caught my eye but the inside description hooked me in. It's a fictional story about "about finding your passion, following your heart, and, most of all, believing in something bigger than yourself... the one and only thing that truly makes life worth living."
It was the first I have read by the author and I really enjoyed it! Girly novels are my favourite fictions. This is probably one of the first I have read, by my choice, that is about a young woman in her early thirties, rather than a teen novel. It was an easy read and I plan on checking out some of her other stories soon!
I LOVED this book! So much so that I read it in just a few days during Halle's nap and at bedtime. It's cover had been popping up all over my Instagram and book lists, so I checked it out online. I've always been interested in business, and girls kicking butt ;), so after viewing the description I knew this was next on my reading list!
I related to some, learned more and finished reading it thinking exactly what she said I would which was wanting to run and find work. It was a great read, probably not for everyone, but totally my style of inspiration. And now I'm one step closer to my journey of becoming a #GIRLBOSS *bam*!
Following: Three Little Crowns
I am constantly finding new blogs and IG's to follow but this one I wanted to share! It's a new blog for the modern mama written by first time mom's Natalie and Britt. They share their journey in motherhood as well as fun DIYs, style and all things baby! What really excited me about finding this blog is that they are Canadian mommies!! So many of the bloggers I follow are based in the US, which is great, but I was happy to find this one is written closer to home :) Check them out!
Thinking: About life with a new baby!
A few times this month I caught myself scrolling through my camera roll, reminiscing about Halle as an itty bitty baby. It's hard to believe in just two months we'll have another one! She is sure to make Halle look so big! Here's a couple throw back photos to this time last Summer with a three month old Halle Kay :)
And just for fun, here's a chalkboard doodle from early July! I've been slacking since... Trying to find the right quote ;)
