"Roots & Sky"

"Roots & Sky: a journey home in four seasons," by Christie Purifoy is a sweet, comforting read that will draw you in and soothe your soul. 
Christie moves into a home with her family and shares with the reader her first year there.  Christie shares her heart, experiences and things she learns in this journey.  The chapters in this book are divided into four sections, one section for each season of the year.  I liked this as we are all in a different season of our own lives and yet our lifestyle will vary each season due to traditions, and activities and yet these will change year to year as well. 
This book is filled with beautiful statements and I loved reading through this and I have marked so many passages.  One early on that I starred is "Our lives are stories built of small moments.  Ordinary experiences.  It is too easy to forget that our days are adding up to something astonishing."  This is something I try to remind myself often as the days seem to rollover into each other and just an endless list of things that have to be done, instead of focusing on the things that matter.  This book will help you remember to do just that.
