That’s the subject of singer/songwriter Nichole Nordemans new book, Slow Down. I sat down with Nichole after her recent appearance on Hallmark’s Home and Family to talk about the inspiration behind her new book. She says she wrote it for her son Charlie’s 5th grade graduation and was encouraged by her manager to record it.
Admittedly in this social media obsessed (guilty!) world we live in its hard to walk away, put your phone down, and be present. This is something I make an effort to do every week in the hopes that my daughter’s memories of me won’t just be of my phone in front of my face. And I’m getting there, slowly but surely. Because it seems like every time I blink, she’s taller, smarter, faster, funnier. And I don’t want to miss another minute.
Watch the piece I did for KRJH 2 Works For You on Nichole, then watch her video for Slow Down. But grab the tissues because you’re going to need them.
Slow Down is available now online and in bookstores.
