Flecks #19

Mended ebbokAs in flecks of reflection from the week: what I'm learning and celebrating.

This week on the blog has been so much fun for me! First, I want to thank Anna White for (1) giving me an early e-copy of her new memoir Mended to review, (2) doing a wonderstruck interview, and (3) offering another free ebook to one Live Wonderstruck reader.

THANK YOU, ANNA!

To see the winner, keep reading. (Hint: It's in the Things I'm Celebrating section.)

So, let's talk about this week.

Things I learned this week:



  • Feeling healthy (or at least healthy-ish) feels sooooo good.

  • Spring might actually be a real season. This week I've witnessed warmer temperatures, April rain, and buds on a few of my trees. You know what I haven't witnessed this week? Snow. Hooray!


Things I'm celebrating this week:



  • The Mended giveaway winner! Congratulations, Jenika Conboy! I will send you an email and put you in touch with Anna for your ebook. Enjoy! And thank you, Jenika, for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  • A dreaming & scheming session with that left me with answers, ideas, and a plan.

  • Healing.

  • Noticing.

  • Cuddling.


wonderseekerWhat's New:


Speaking of ideas and plans, I am starting up a monthly email newsletter with short and sweet wonderstruck inspiration to start your month off right. Want in? Look for the sign up at the top of my sidebar.

Speaking of signing up, if you sign up before the first edition in May, you will also get to join my new 3-day Wonder Seeker Photo Challenge for free. It's three days of prompts emailed to you challenging you to look at your surroundings with fresh eyes and share what you see on Instagram.

Things that are resonating with me this week:


Sorry Zuckerberg, I'm Giving You Up by Phoebe Hook. I just discovered Phoebe and her website this week and loved this post. Be sure to watch the video. It will make you think twice about picking up your phone. Ever.

How I Do My Business + Why by Jennifer Louden. She talks about boundaries, serving, platforms, and more. Her tips are short and honest. I love that.

In case you missed it...


My last "Doing Good" article for Grandmother Hen appeared last week. I love this series. The topic this time around was Doing Good: Wildlife Conservation.

I also had a few articles launch this week on Simply Happy Me including Make Your Body Happy: S-T-R-E-T-C-H!, a review of the book The Serious Pursuit of Happiness, and an interview with its author Henry S. Miller. You may remember Henry from his interview on Live Wonderstruck earlier this year.

Your turn:


What did you learn this week? What are you celebrating? Leave a comment and I'll share a "Woohoo!"

  1. Hi Sherri, I love that you are going to send out a newsletter. Can't wait for my first copy. What did I learn this week? Something really important. I talk a lot about self-care and we all say that it is important to take time for yourself. But does that mean different things during different times? A friend is going through a stressful time right now and we determined that it is important to know what self-care means when you really have the time to take care of yourself and do the things you love as opposed to the basic but essential things you must do to take care of yourself no matter what. For some the list may be the same but for others (especially caregivers) it is important to know the difference.
    Have a great weekend. Would love to catch up soon.

  2. Thank you for your enthusiasm and encouragement, Ginny! As for learning about self care this week, WOOHOO! That is an important lesson we all could learn a little better I think. Wishing you a wonderstruck weekend!
