We Can All Be Amazing

Do you ever have one of those days where everything is just perfect and amazing? Or what about a whole week worth of amazingness? The kind that nothing goes wrong. Everything you do is done well. Everyone you come across has a smile on their face. You go to reach for your Halo Top ice cream and your regular flavors are packed full and in-stock. OK, me neither…..let’s bring it down to reality now LOL. We all have moments in our days where there might be something that was absolutely amazing, right?

What about when you talk with your friends or new people that you meet? Do you ever compare yourself to them or build them up when they’ve done something amazing? Can’t we all be amazing? Absolutely! This life isn’t about me. I strive to always encourage everyone I come in contact with no matter what it is. It not only gives me joy, but that person will shine and we both rise!

So, today is one of those AMAZING days!!!

So Close to Amazing will be available on September 5, 2017. Pre-order HERE by September 4, 2017 and you can receive some amazing prizes included with your purchase.

You will find this book heartwarming, super funny, filled with faith and there’s even these cute pages with DIY projects straight from KariAnne at the end of each chapter.


A Blog Tour of So Close to Amazing – Stories and Reviews

August 21 – September 16, 2017

I invite you to link up your book review about So Close to Amazing so we can share with others all of our #soclosetoamazing moments and encourage one another. You don’t even have to have a blog. Just share away! Have you had a DIY project gone bad? Maybe you found that garage sale dresser that you just thought would look so cute if you stripped it and re-painted it in a cute chalky paint color but ended up being a big flop? We want to see these! We’re all imperfect but we’re also here to build everyone up and hopefully laugh a little once we look back on these little mess ups LOL. #soclosetoamazing

PRIZES. Did I mention PRIZES?


Each time you link up to the party on any of the 13 bloggers, you will be entered to win one of the two prizes. How cool is this?? (2) winners will be announced randomly on Thistlewood Farms blog on September 17, 2017. Good luck!!!


Please visit all of our co-hosts and I hope you enjoy reading all of their reviews and stories of their #soclose moments.

    Love your philosophy that all of us are amazing, and we should strive to build up everyone we meet!

    I am so glad I met you through KariAnne.


    • Thank you Judith! I feel the same way! You have been such an insight and inspiration to me through this entire journey! Have a great day!!!

    Good Morning Wendy…you are right, each of us is amazing in our own way and we just need to stop the comparison to others. I hope you have a fantastic day and an amazing week and glad to be on this encouraging journey with you.

    Hugs, Lynn

    • Lynn, I know, we all find ourselves in comparison or competition with others and that’s just not how it’s supposed to be. I strive to love everyone unconditionally. I’m so thankful to have met you as well and love how we can all build each other up! Have a great day!!!

  3. Wendy,
    For some reason, my email messages to you are being bounced. I get a message that says the email cannot be delivered, even when I hit reply to your email. Could you send me your email address, perhaps an alternate one?

  10. […] This book made me laugh and cry, was inspirational, uplifting and full of hope that we don’t always have to be “perfect” and we all “mess up”. I’ve been honored to be a part of this team and I’m also part of the Book Tour. You can read all about it HERE. […]
