Notes From a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider (Book Spotlight and GIVEAWAY!!!)

About the Book:

Life is chaotic. But
we can choose to live it differently.

It doesn’t always
feel like it, but we do have the
freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that
our path better aligns with our values and passions.

The popular blogger and founder of the internationally
recognized Simple Mom online
community tells the story of her family’s ongoing quest to live more simply,
fully, and intentionally.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from a
hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a
small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime
dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via
plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.

Entertaining and compelling—but never shrill or dogmatic—Notes from a Blue Bike invites you to
climb on your own bike, pay attention to who you are and what your family
needs, and make some important choices.

It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life
according to who you really are
simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.
