Life In Season

Updated: Jul 3, 2019

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’m thinking about special gift ideas.

Vanessa Hunt and Heather Patterson are sisters and coauthor’s of:  At the Picket Fence Blog.

This dynamic duo, recently wrote a treasure of a book, entitled, Life In Season.

What a GREAT gift idea!

The beautifully bound book cover is embellished with soft shades of cream, metallic gold, and green (my favorite colors).  

I think you’ll agree-this book is as beautiful as its authors and the perfect Valentine gift for yourspecial someone.

Shhhh…I already have someone in mind, and I’m certain she’ll enjoy displaying her copy of

Life In Season, as much as I enjoy displaying mine.  

Vanessa and Heather invite us to celebrate the moments that fill our heart and home. 

Here’s a little inside scoop:

Ecclesiastes 3:1, was a source of inspiration for writing this book:

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.”

With interesting section titles like:

A Life UnfoldedClean Faucets and Clean HeartsPatinaThe-In-BetweenThe Worry Jar

I won’t give the the other section titles away. But, I will say, with confidence:  You’ll be as captivated as I am! 

The unique craft ideas make this book interactive, fun, and insightful. These girls thought of everything-including lists of items needed for each craft idea. How thoughtful, providing you and I the opportunity to gather our favorite people together and let our creative juices flow…

Threaded throughout each section of the book, you will discover colorful, side-boxes with wonderful words of wisdom, sure to inspire.

I’ve included a sample, below:

“Here’s the thing about the gift of God’s love. There is absolutely no pressure, no expectation when it comes to receiving it.”

One of my personal favorite ideas?

The peppermint sugar-scrub recipe! How nice of Vanessa and Heather, to include such a wide variety of creative options sure to thrill all five senses.

Don’t you agree?

Wouldn’t this book make a perfect Valentine ‘happy’ for family, friends, or co-workers? I think so!

Be sure to order your copy, today!

Welcome to a brand new beginning of celebrating your life, and the lives of those you love, in every season!

Your Friend,
