Happy to be Alive: Books, Headbands, and Peaches.

Share This Post With Your Friends!

  1. The felt flower headband & the photos turned out great- though I have to admit, the floral bun wrap is now on my radar šŸ˜‰ So exciting to have your book sent out for reviews! And I hope your move goes well and you can enjoy the long weekend!

    Happy Friday! How amazing that you have a book! Definitely going to be following along and would love to read your book! I absolutely love writing and have written several drafts that I can never quite finish, but that's my goal for this year. Kudos to you! xo

    I'm so proud of your huge dream and accomplishment! It takes courage to put yourself out there, and you're doing it. PS: that boho bun wrap is ridiculously cute. I spy a purchase in the future!

  4. 58 books to be reviewed?! Ooh la la how exciting! Have a fabulous weekend, loving your pretty new flower crowns!!!

  5. Once you have #4 down, life is a dream.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I think one of the hardest things about being a writer is being open to feedback. Your work is just so personal and you spend hours pouring yourself into every word trying to make sure it's perfect. Now, some people will be jerks just to be jerks to you. But I really think other times if someone gives you feedback it's because they only want to make you better.

    Have a great weekend!


  7. congrats on your book sales! So exciting!

    You are so cute! I hope your move goes well and congrats on sending out your book to 58 people! I love 3 day weekends. We are headed to the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado for some camping, outdoor living and hiking.

  9. Yay! That is so exciting! Where does your book tour go? Hope moving goes well!

  10. Good luck on all your reviews! That's a great idea.

  12. I am still so impressed with the fact that you WROTE a book!! I just ordered a copy from Amazon — it's supposed to arrive tomorrow and will be the first book I've been able to read in months. I am so excited!!

    What an awesome post – congrats on the book again and moving? Well, that's not fun, but the unpacking is fun! šŸ™‚
    Thanks for stopping by SLS šŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!


  14. I just found your blog and I am in love! It is awesome that you wrote your own book!! I look forward to reading more.

  15. Busy girl! Love moving day (honestly)! You get to wake up to a blank slate and start all over in your new home. And congrats on the book! Thats exciting!

  16. Happy To Be Alive, Because sounds incredible and that's amazing that you wrote a book! I just added it to my Goodreads to-read shelf. I'm planning to order one of those flower headbands very soon, too. They're so adorable šŸ™‚

  17. Beautiful cover, hope its well received

  18. I'm a people pleaser so I definitely struggle with #4 too, it's really brave of you to put yourself out there and go after what you want – congratulations on the new place and getting your book out!

  19. #2 is AMAZING. I hope to be there one day. #4…yeah, the part I am already dreading if I do ever get published. It is scary to be that vulnerable. A book is so personal! And not everyone could do what you are doing. You are so brave. I think only good things will come of it. I bet when the reviews do come out, you will be pleasantly surprised. Anyway, I'm impressed. šŸ™‚ Also, I would love to read it.

  20. That's an amazing accomplishment! You should feel proud of yourself for chasing your dreams no matter the outcome. I will pray for good reviews! And just remember not to take criticism personally. Everyone has their own tastes, just like your quote above. You can't be for everyone and that does not make your worth any less!

  21. What a completely awesome feature! And what a great title for a book, too! Congratulations on being a published author! That is completely amazing.

  22. 58 books! So exciting!! I still need to get it myself šŸ™‚

    First of all, I have to tell you- I love visiting your blog. You radiate joy, positivity and sweetness – through your words and sharing your thoughts with all of us. Thank you!!!! Secondly, I have not finished your book yet (I am a slow reader with not enough time, I tell ya!) but I *love* what I have read so far. And that's the truth. So you have at least ONE reader (and I'm sure many more) who is enjoying your book! So excited for your tour, Chelsea!!!
