Day 2725 – My Book In Person!! – or – Reading Goals

Last night, or very early this morning, we arrived home around 2 a.m., driven by an awesome Uber driver, I might add. While we were away, I ordered a few things from Amazon, including the softback version of my book. I purposefully waited until we were close to the end of the trip so we wouldn’t miss the packages. Amazon is a great service, unfortunately for me, too good! Thankfully, we know some of our neighbors well, and one of them grabbed the first package. When I got notification about my book, we texted the neighbor but he said nothing was there. I was sad because I realllllly wanted to see my book as soon as we got home. Even though I stopped the mail, on a lark, I check our box…..there it was! The first thing I did was rip into that package!

Oh friends, I sat on the floor and cried….I’m sure some of that was from traveling for 10 hours, not eating a ton, and enduring another crying baby for the duration of our flight…..but what joy it was to see something I created. I realized while we were away that it has taken me well over 5 years to write this book. It has given me courage to write more and write like crazy. It has also given me reason to read more. I find I am a much better writer and creator when I’m reading a lot. I’m signed up for the Modern Mrs. Darcy’s 2017 reading challenge and I’m excited to see what books that will bring my way…it’s a bit of a choose your own adventure reading challenge. I’m doing both of the challenges: Read for Fun (book you chose for the cover or a book you don’t want to admit you’re dying to read) and the Reading for Growth (book more than 600 pages, a Newbery Award winner). I like having some direction to my reading but I also like freedom to choose. If you have any challenges or books to recommend, throw them my way! You can check out my to be read list on Goodreads and get a feel for what I like.

Now for the geek out portion of the post….

I’m a Goodreads author!!!! Eeeep! I mean, it wasn’t that hard to get my account set up that way and add my book….but still….as a Goodreads nerd, I’m excited. 🙂

Are you interested in the printed version of my book? Check it out!

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
