In our never ending quest to create the life of our dreams, things tend to get jumbled up along the way. A beautiful life-work balance is super hard to achieve, especially in this very digital age, where Instagram feeds entice us with sparkling clean kitchens, the ultimate no-makeup makeup look and stunningly beautiful displays of magazine worthy brunch dishes. Avocado toast, anyone? We find ourselves running after the best, most picture-perfect this and that and forgetting to enjoy the adventure of it all...
Now, we at The FIND are readers. We adore books and love nothing more than curling up with a good one. And, it could be said we have an unabashed adoration of Indiana girl Erin Loechner. Design guru, successful blogger and stylist, and now author, Loechner inspires us on the daily via Design for Mankind, not just with her style, but with her approach to life (and the girl can seriously turn a phrase). So, when we first learned of Loechner's book, Chasing Slow, we started counting down the days until we could get our hands on it, which was last week. We've been savoring every morsel of the book since.
Loechner beautifully walks us through her life, her work and her discoveries during the journey, addressing the very jumble we often find ourselves in the middle of.
Chasing Slow is the reminder we all need to take a breath, enjoy the small and simple pleasures around every corner, to extract ourselves from the hurly-burly of modern life, at least for a few moments at a time. Loechner's charming stories and wise perspectives will delight and inspire.
Get your hands on an autographed copy of Chasing Slow at The FIND, or at our sister store, The Trove. We promise you'll not only fall in love with the way she writes, but also with Loechner herself. Here's to Chasing Slow!
