Product Description

Lifestyle blogger and designer Erin Loechner knows the allure of "more." But living life under the shadow of her husband's inoperable brain tumor teaches her, in an inspired and grace-filled journey, how to focus on the few things that truly matter. With honest, imperfect progress, Erin learns that the truest way to upgrade her life was to downsize it--her stuff, her obligations, her fears, her personal metric of "perfect." In Chasing Slow, she helps other women come to this same life-changing realization.

Publisher's Description

You’re here, but you want to be there

So you spend your life narrowing this divide, and you call this your race, your journey, your path. You live your days tightening your boot straps, wiping the sweat from your brow, chasing undiscovered happiness just around the bend. Higher! Faster! Better! Stronger! 

And on and on you run. 

Viral sensation and HGTV.com star Erin Loechner knows about the chase. Before turning 30, she'd built a fan base of one million women worldwide and earned the title "The Nicest Girl Online" as she was praised for her authentic voice and effortless style. The New York Times applauded her, her friends and church admired her, and her husband and baby adored her. 

She had arrived at the ultimate destination.

So why did she feel so lost? 

In Chasing Slow, Erin turns away from fast and fame and frenzy. Follow along as she blazes the trail toward a new-fashioned lifestyle—one that will refresh your perspective, renew your priorities, and shift your focus to the journey that matters most. Through a series of steep climbs—her husband's brain tumor, bankruptcy, family loss, and public criticism—Erin learns just how much strength it takes to surrender it all, and to veer right into grace. 

Life's answers are not always hidden where they seem. It's time to venture off the beaten path to see that we’ve already been given everything we need. We've already arrived. 

You see?

You'll see.

Author Bio

A former art director/stylist in Los Angeles, Erin Loechner has been blogging and speaking for more than a decade. Her heartfelt writing and design work has been showcased in The New York Times, Lucky, Parenting, Dwell, Marie Claire, Elle Decor, Huffington Post, and a two-season HGTV.com web special, garnering over one million fans worldwide. She has spoken for and appeared in renowned international events for clients such as Walt Disney World, IKEA, Martha Stewart and Home Depot. Now nestled in a Midwestern town, Erin, her husband, and their toddler strive for less in most areas except three: joy, grace, and goat cheese.

Editorial Reviews

When you find you are drowning in your own life---working harder, sleeping less, putting out fires, filling your hours with to-dos, and enjoying very little of it---I pray that Erin Loechner’ s gentle, wise book will find its way into your hands. Chasing Slow guides us to a simpler life worth living. Prepare to feel your heart rate drop as you read these soothing, smart words.
Erin’s writing is beautiful, and this book is soulful and practical, honest and inspiring. For all of us who are tempted to perform and filter and prove---which is, I think, all of us---this is a necessary conversation about a deeper, better way of living.
With four daughters and a job that I love, it is a great challenge for me to keep prioritized those things that give me true joy. As more activity comes into my life, Erin’s story has given me not only inspiration but a practical framework to make healthy and easily implemented choices.
Erin’s way of thinking shows the fruit of living slowly. She pulls at every string, peeks beneath every layer. She connects the dots of how so many of us are feeling, putting words to questions we’re only just beginning to ask. This book is beautifully written, and you’ll want to savor it.
In the fast lane of life, this book is a much needed rest stop for the soul.
Beautifully written. Beautifully lived. Chasing Slow will capture your attention, shift your perspective on life, and mark your journey as you move toward what matters.
When the world yells, “Be more, run faster, try harder,” I’ll pick up this book again to remind me that true joy lies in the beauty of slow and present. With grace and humor, Erin tells the stories I need to hear and brought my heart back home.
Erin Loechner has a calming presence, a reassuring voice, and a life-giving soul. You’ll walk away from these pages shifted and feeling whole instead of hurried. Her words are a brave call to a fast-paced generation, and I cannot suggest reading them enough.
Reading Chasing Slow is like eating a really scrumptious meal that also happens to be good for you. Erin’s voice is honest even when it hurts, inviting even when we don’t deserve the invitation. I consumed this delicious, compelling book in a weekend and bled my highlighter dry along the way.
Erin has always stood out as someone who knows how to get beyond the pretty picture and all the comments and likes of social media. In her eloquent, smart, and real story about the evolution of her online and offline journey, she reminds us how to accept ourselves, feel more with less, and soak up life as it come to us.
Chasing Slow is equal parts memoir, meditation, and map to a more peaceful life. Erin Loechner has an artist’s eye for beauty, a poet’s ear for metaphor, and a scientist’s mind for investigation and clarity. Her wise voice stayed with me long after I finished the book.
Erin takes us on a charming, meandering dance of stories, witticisms, and wisdoms. This book is for dreamers, adventurers, creatives, students, mamas, and professionals, but more than that, it’s for those of us feeling flawed and desperately craving connection. I’m adding it to a very short stack of inspiring favorites, and cannot wait to read it again.

    MY THOUGHTS:

    Ive read so many books on simplifying lifeon slowing down, being present, and living life to its fullest. In many of those books, authors share what worked for them, and tips for re-creating their simple, stress-free lives. Chasing Slow didnt do that for me. What it did do, though, was invite me to pause and contemplate my life, my habits, and my story. And I cant tell you how much I love that.

    This book is a story. A story of heartbreak, joys, lessons learned, and even math equations (yes, you read that right). But more than that, its a book that allows youthe readerto walk with the author, making notes of the priorities in your life. As you journey through this wonderful book, youll see that you already have all you needand more.

    There are few books Ive read that bring me to tears, but this was one. They werent sad tears, though, and I cant explain exactly what kind of tears they were. I found myself crying because there was finally someone who understood how Ive felt for so long, and knowing someones been there is comforting. I found myself crying, all the while I was saying, Yes! Exactly! to Loechners true, kind words.

    I loved the design of this beautiful book. The typography was fantastic, and honestly, this book is a work of art that will have a home on my shelf for years to come. The recipes sprinkled throughout were a fun addition, and I loved the photos, too. But most of all, the words. They were my absolute favourite, like a warm blanket wrapped around me.
