chasing slow

I’m currently reading Chasing Slow for the second time–it’s that good. I got my hands on an early copy this summer to read for endorsement but the timing was off and Chad and I were leaving for a big trip and I couldn’t finish it. I hated that I couldn’t get my endorsement finished in time–so here it is: READ THIS BOOK.  You probably already know Erin from her blog: Design for Mankind–she’s a stylist and lover of design who is so intentional about how she lives her life full of grace and quiet purpose. The perfect January read!





  1. Myq, I’ve seen this book a lot this week and just scrolled by. I spent too much on new books this year. BUT your words above put me over the edge to check it out.
    One of the Amazon reviews hit me where i am too. So many books now are “slow down” and “say no” but that’s not what I need.

    • Kristin! YES, I think I spent more on books last year than clothes.

      I LOVE listening to Erin on The Simple Show–shes SO graceful with how she lives and talks it makes you love her even more.

      • Erin Neiner says

        Is The Simple Show her podcast? Looked it up and only found one done by Tsh Oxenreider. So now I’m curious about Erin Loechner’s voice out there. :)

        • Not to hijack, but I’m pretty sure Erin is a cohost on Tsh’s podcast right now. Tsh started something new in the last few months where she got regular cohosts to chat with. So maybe scroll through the episodes and read the descriptions to find ones with Erin? Hope that helps!

          Also, Nester/Myquillin, I looove the black and white kitchen photo at the top! I’m just not sure if I’m brave enough to pull black and white off in our house :) We are in the process of moving, but I’m hoping it’ll work out for me to do your course next time it’s open after we get settled. Looking forward to trying some new things with a new house!

  2. Oh, Nester, that school room made me want to home school … and my kids are in their 30s.

    And Erin’s book is awaiting at the library. But when all is said and done, I have a feeling I’ll end up buying it.

  3. I love seeing dark wood in kitchens. So. many. Kitchens are all bright. White these days but i love the cozy feel of a darker kitchen.

  4. I started bullet journaling this month and Lazy Collective has been my go-to spot for tips and tricks. Love their stuff!

  5. Thanks for including my post Myq! You are the sweetest! xoxo

  6. These rooms are amazing. I think you would like some of the designs from furnishing company I used to decorate my new apartment. You should look them up at
