I am a big fan of Amanda Soule and her wonderful blog SouleMama (http://soulemama.typepad.com/). She really amazes me in how she raises her now four(!) children and keeps her house so lively and creative and filled with inspiration for everyone. I read this as part of my "Good Mother Research." What makes a good mother? I think Amanda Soule is one. This is a really sweet read for anyone that wants to bring more creativity and authenticity to their homes and lives.
