The 52 Lists Project + GiveawayTuesday, September 08, 2015
Today is an exciting day! Moorea Seal's first book, The 52 List Project, is available today. I've been a fan of Moorea for a few years now. She's a wildly inspiring lady with a beautifully curated store located in Seattle (that I'm dying to visit!) I received an advanced copy of the book from the publishing company that I've basically just been admiring since the second I opened the package.
The book is phenomenal. It has fifty two list prompts, one for each week, that are split into four sections, one for each season! At the end of each list there is a suggestion on how to take an action related to the prompt. You can do them in order by season or randomly if that's what feels right. I know I've talked in the past about how much I love making lists. If you do too, you're going to need this book. On top of that it's filled gorgeous photos and cute little illustrations. It's a very visually appealing book!
So far I've done two of the prompts. It's been really relaxing to sit outside with a cup of tea and write. I started in the summer section. The first list I did was "List everything you love to do outdoors" and I don't think there could have been anything anymore fitting for how things have been lately. Last week I shared a little bit about the anxiety I've been feeling this summer (read here) and how because of it I've spent way too much time indoors. It was really eye opening to be able to sit down and write out all the things I've been letting myself miss out on - sunsets, bike rides, picking wild flowers, etc. It's kind of funny that those two things would link up so perfectly. I'm definitely looking forward to writing more inspiring lists for myself.
The publishing company has also been kind enough to offer up a copy of The 52 Lists Project to one lucky reader of The Dainty Squid! I apologize in advance but the giveaway is only open to readers with a US or Canadian mailing address. To enter to win your own copy of The 52 Lists Project just leave a comment that includes a list. You can list the reasons you're excited about fall, your five favorite things about your dog, or your favorite bands - doesn't matter. Just make it fun! A winner will be chosen one week from today.
