I got a wonderful stack of books for my birthday, gifted by my much loved mother and husband. They know me well, and know to check my Amazon wishlist around birthday time.
What I like most about this stack of books is how well it sums up where I am right now, who I am, and who I am becoming every day, as a woman, a wife and a mother.
Here's the list, in case any titles aren't clear in the picture:
Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life by Karen Maezen Miller
Circle of Stones: A Woman's Journey to Herself by Judith Duerk
Buddhism for Mothers: A Calm Approach to Caring for Yourself and Your Children by Sarah Napthali
Sew Liberated: 20 Stylish Projects for the Modern Sewist by Meg McElwee
Pints and Purls: Portable Projects for the Social Knitter by Karida Collins (my knitting class teacher!) and Libby Bruce (owner of my local knitting store)
A Swedish Kitchen: Recipes and Reminiscences by Judith Pierce Rosenberg
Buddha at Bedtime: Tales of Love and Wisdom for You to Read with Your Child to Enchant, Enlighten and Inspire by Dharmachari Nagaraja

I would love to know if you have any of these books, and what you think about them. I may even provide some reviews in the future.
