We may be some of the last people on the planet to do so, but we finally started watching The Crown. And everyone was right, it IS so good!
Jesse and I are watching it first to decide whether it’s something that our girls can watch (we’ve heard there is one episode that is especially not family-friendly in Season 2) and we are loving researching everything while watching to see how historically accurate it is.
I feel like I’m getting this huge history lesson — in the form of a really engaging show! That’s totally my kind of learning! 🙂
Have you watched The Crown? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
And of course, we watched the Royal Wedding. We didn’t get up super early to watch it so we only saw the tail end of it live, but then we watched them share all of the highlights and give commentary on it. It was pretty interesting!
We also watched the final episode of Season 2 of Timeless. And now I really hope they are going to make a Season 3!
I finished One Beautiful Dream by Jennifer Fulwiler this past week and truly loved it. If you are a mom who also works or you are a mom who wants to figure out a way to pursue your passions while also being a mom, I think you’ll enjoy this book.
I loved how Jennifer talks about embracing the chaos instead of trying to make everything perfect or ideal. I love how she shares so openly about the real struggles involved with trying to have a business and be a mom. And I loved how she showed that the seeing setbacks and delays that came with motherhood actually made her stronger as a writer and business owner.
The last chapter of this book was so good and just really encouraged my heart. There are some days when this path I’m on of being a full-time work-at-home mom who both loves my kids and loves my work can feel lonely. Jennifer’s book made me feel less alone and less crazy and it really reinforced a lot of the places that God has brought me to and the peace I have with what our family dynamics look like — even though they are so different than so many other families we know.
When I Find Time to Read
People are always asking me how I find time to read. Honestly, it’s because I love to read, because I’ve chosen to prioritize it, because I don’t have a lot of other hobbies, and because I can’t not read. Also, when you love something, you usually can find ways to get creative to find time to fit it in — even if it’s in the little nooks and crannies of life.
I wrote a post on 3 ways to find more time to read — even when life is busy. And here are 7 more ways to find time to read.
