If you've never ventured over to a little blog that goes by the name of "Enjoying the Small Things"...what the HECK have you been doing with your spare time?? (Oh. Right. You've probably been working out, cooking dinner, cleaning the house and doing anything and everything more productive than what I've been doing recently.)

So anyways, Kelle Hampton, the writer, is probably THE most inspiring, optimistic, enthusiastic women I've ever "known". (Even though I'm one of her 17,000+ followers and have never actually have any communication with her whatsoever)...

The stories and pictures of her precious baby girls, Nella and Lainey, literally brighten my day on an ongoing basis. From playing in the rain to a tea-party style birthday...they truly define the happiness in Kelle's life and you can see it all throughout the pictures on her blog.

On that note, Kelle is a FABULOUS photographer. 
(Gah. One day I WILL learn to take pictures a tenth as good as she does. One day...)

 Thanks to Katie, I've been addicted to Kelle's blog for quite some time now. 
Then I started following her on Twitter
...and now on Instagram.
(And if I had Facebook, you bet your sweet toosh I'd follow her on there too.)

Seriously. Sister has GOT it goin' on.

So much so that she has written a book. A BOOK! A mommy, turned photographer, turned blogger and now a friggin' artist. (She literally makes me question my own capabilities every single day...Whatevs.)

 Well, today her brand new book "Bloom" has officially launched and is available at Barnes & Noble (...and probably every other well-known book store on this planet.)

I don't know her. 
She doesn't even know I exist. 
And to be honest, I don't even know if her name is pronounced "Kell" or "Kell-ee".

What I do know is that she has an incredible story and a powerful 
outlook on life and for that, I truly admire her.

Perhaps I'm a marketer's dream but this trailer is pretty darn compelling.

Thank you, Kelle (or Kell-y?), for sharing your amazing story with the world.

And thank you, Beau Howard, for buying this for me for my birthday.
