Katrina Kenison has a gift.
The gift to find beauty in the ordinary.
Her writing takes you into her cozy home and makes you feel like you have new eyes to see a world of magic in a pile of dirty dishes or a walk on the fields.
Kenison, author of three books, including The Gift of an Ordinary Day, and I sat down and got cozy to chat on this most recent podcast episode of The Abundant Mama Show.
We quickly realized just how much we are alike and while she’s farther along on the parenting journey we shared the same struggles and deep love of motherhood and slow living.
I asked her a lot of questions — including HOW she is so easily able to make family life and errands and chores FEEL magical and extraordinary in her newest book, “Moments of Seeing.”
And the key, she said, began when she began creating margins in her life to make space and time for slowing down.
By adding white space into your everyday life, you are almost able to see with new eyes what has been around you all along.
Slowing down, she said, is the only way to start to see the beauty unfold around us.
We had a beautiful conversation — one of my favorites of all time, to be honest.
