Half 11-01

One of my favorite guests and authors, Shauna Niequist, is back today for our 11th episode of the Happy Half Hour. She was on the Happy Hour back in the old days on episode #11. If you missed that one, make sure to listen here.

Shauna is the author of Cold Tangerines, BittersweetBread & Wine, and Savor. Her next book, Present Over Perfect, will be released next week. She and her husband, Aaron, live in Chicago with their sons, Henry and Mac. Shauna is a bookworm, a beachbum, and a passionate gatherer of people, especially around the table.

You'll love hearing about Shauna's new book and hearing her respond to the usuals – how she recharges, what she's reading and watching and her biggest pet peeve.

If you haven't read any of Shauna's books, I highly encourage you to jump on it. I have absolutely loved everything I have read of hers, and am so looking forward to reading Present Over Perfect.

Y'all enjoy the weekend, and make sure to tune in next week for another great episode on Wednesday.

{You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}
