Settling In + Inspiring Links

{Every week, I publish a small round-up of my favorite goodies. Enjoy!}

I have’t been online much this week because of the move and we’ve also been outside a lot too. We’re helping with party preparations because, tomorrow, Logan’s grandparents are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary! There will be a big celebration at my father and mother in-law’s house. I’m really looking forward to the party because we’ll be able to connect with friends and family that we haven’t seen in a while.

We’re settling into the house and feeling happy and content. This morning I sat on the front porch, drinking coffee, and I watched the sunrise over Mt. Shasta. Then I did a little bit of writing and responded to a lot of email.

The cats seem to like it here too. It’s fun to watch them explore the ranch. For example, Christie sauntered out to the barn and then ran back to the tiny house at mach speed. By mid-morning, Elaina made her way over to the yard by the big house. As soon as she stepped into the grass, the chickens were curious and came over to see what kind of new creature entered their territory. About a dozen adult chickens surrounded Elaina and proceeded to follow her around the yard. Elaina seemed a little intimidated by her new feathered friends, but she made the best of it. Unfortunately, the lighting was too bad to get a photo. The cats are definitely in their element and are sniffing every surface around the tiny house.

And last but not least, I’m trying to relax before the book launches on September 18th. The tiny book tour is approaching quickly and I’ll be traveling a lot in September and October. I’m enjoying the quiet time before the craziness starts.

If you’ve already received a pre-order of the book, please leave a review on Amazon.comBarnes and NobleIndie Bound or Powell’s. It would be super helpful. Thanks in advance for your support and help!
