My Review:

Have you ever read a book that has rocked you to your core and totally flipped your life upside down? 

I have a small list of book that have done just that and now I can add The Fringe Hours to that list. Seriously this is THE number one book I have read this year thus far. I was absolutely thrilled to be a member of the Launch Team for The Fringe Hours

We as women have so many things going in our lives that we often are far too overwhelmed and forget to take care of ourselves. And when we do that, often crisis comes up and we have no idea where to go with it or how to deal with it. Jessica N. Turner is a mom and well known blogger, who has written a delightful book that will encourage you so much. I love that she encourages women to really take time for oneself, learn a hobby, go to an exercise class, join a book club. Whatever your interests are, take time to dig into them and allow them to help you take care of you for a while, so you can be there for the others in your life. When one takes care of self they are more able to be successful in caring for others. 

The Fringe Hours is LOADED with practical tips and ideas, with many personals stories told from the authors and was such an encouraging read. I have read it twice now, and definitely will re-read it again. It would be a great Bridal shower gift or even a baby shower gift for a new mom.

I highly recommend this book and gift it a huge thumbs up!
