At the risk of too much navel-gazing, it’s been a really lovely week of finding that my book has made its way into so many of your homes. I’ve said this already, but more than a week later, I’m no less touched to see your posts crop up on Instagram, or Facebook, or in emails sent directly to me. It’s such an incredible honor to see Simple Matters in your spaces. It’s funny, too, to see how you’ve been cozying up to read. Some of you have been nuzzled next to a favorite human, or pooch, or other furry thing! Other times, there’s been a mug of warm something or other nearby. There have been green things, and candles and many too many beautiful wooden tables to count.
Thank you for sharing.
Here’s a make-believe collage to celebrate my very favorite hashtag. Neutral-colored reading nook, not required of course, but here’s my stab at dreaming up a few favorite things to recreate your collective nooks:
+ A copy of Simple Matters for reading.
+ A candle for smelling good.
+ A blanket for snuggling with.
+ A mug for drinking something warm.
+ A lamp for light to read by.
+ A plant for greening things up a bit.
+ A sweatshirt for being cozy in.
+ A little cheese plate for snacking.
PS. To all of my beloved international readers, never you fear: books are coming! In this week’s episode of Things I Didn’t Know Before Writing a Book, I realized that Simple Matters wasn’t actually released on the 12th the world over. Who knew? But it is coming! Thanks so much for being patient!
