Our Favorite Reads


We are self-professed bibliophiles!


As such, we have lists, upon lists, of books we love. We borrow most of our books & audiobooks from our local libraries, but we do enjoy owning a few at home, so I’m posting purchase links.

Here are a few you may enjoy:

Blogs: So many, so little time…my fellow female writers…thank you!

Sonya challenges us through her Three Line Tales and composes lovely stories and poetry on her blog Only 100 Words

And many other, including writers, homeschoolers, and many more, in no particular order…

Dutch Goes the Photo! is Frank‘s Swan Song – gathering his beautiful art in words and photography – offering inspiration, challenges, and camaraderie. Yoga Tree? — lovely and beautiful in every season, every condition, every reason. Coffee table book material!

Small Things where Ginny spins yarn and beautiful tales with lovely pictures of her 7 homeschooled children, their quest for simplicity, and focus on family…and keeps it real. She’s truly inspirational because she’s so relatable.

Assortment Carmella downsized, literally. With three boys and a pilot husband, she and her crew built a *little* house. It’s moveable. It’s minimalist bliss! I’m not quite there, but she’s an inspiration!!

Becoming Minimalist Joshua Becker is such a wealth of information and posting resources. Here’s where I first learned about the female uniform…and beginning my minimalist transformation of Living Lightly!

Apartment Therapy Pretty colors, beautiful rooms, lots of small space ideas. And lots of IKEA…Yay!

Planner Perfect creator, Jenny Penton, began to really change the way I think about planning through her ebook, Planner Perfect. A great read, simple to implement, great inspiration videos. Another homeschooling mother of many who builds routine and Margin into her life.

Happy Reading!!
