2020 Spring Break Reading List

February 29, 2020

Hi friends! As many of you know, I took the beginning of this year off of social media. Taking this break was life giving and really gave me some time to be away from "the world" for a few weeks. I hung a gallery wall in our front hallway. We celebrated my twins' fifth birthday. I read and wrote a ton (tens of thousands of words to be exact). It was a really beautiful time.

Every morning after my kids were off to school, I hibernated in my bedroom and wrote for hours to meet my book deadline. Writing this book was a new experience for me. I did a TON of research before I even put words onto the page. I can't stop reading! Fiction has always been my favorite, but now I'm on a nonfiction streak - of all sorts.

With spring break right around the corner, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite recent reads with you. Pick one (or two!) up before you head to the beach this spring. I'd love to hear your thoughts after you read them! 

P.S. I started a new Facebook page! Be sure you’re following along for more family stuff, book details, and behind-the-scenes of my job as Simplified CEO.
