The Nesting Place

This came in the mail this week. And I don't know if I've been this excited about getting a new book in a loooong time.

Myquillyn Smith has a delightful blog at The Nester where she shares all about her home and how "it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful." Which for someone who has quite a bit of 'perfect' in her personality, is quite therapeutic to hear [from a "professional", no less], then repeat daily, chant in my sleep, and hopefully get to the point of living it out.

I'm only a few chapters in, but it is SO. GOOD. When I purchased the book I originally thought it would be more of a flip-through-and-stop-when-something-catches-my-eye kind of read, but it most definitely is a start-from-the-beginning kind of book [or maybe that's just the perfect coming out in me?]. :) Myquillyn tells stories so well and I have laughed and cried along with her.

So, my piece of advice—if you are at all interested in decor, good stories, home design, how to make a house a home, renting (she's rented 10 homes!), pretty pictures, or how to make a space imperfectly beautiful you should definitely check this book out! Bonus—Myquillyn loves Jesus and definitely has some great life lessons along the way. I'll check in with ya'll again when I'm done, but from the few chapters I've devoured so far, I can just tell this is going to be a magical journey.
