…and we’ve got a new Art of Simple Podcast! In this episode I’m chatting with Megan, a contributor here and blogger at Sorta Crunchy. Plus, we’re revealing a new “format” of sorts, so I’d love to know what you think!
The winners of a copy of Surprised by Motherhood and a Daily Grace tea set are: Sarah, Heather, and Amanda. Congrats, all! Look for an email from us soon. Head here to buy a copy of the book… serious Mama’s Day gift. For real.
Book club time!
And if you haven’t yet seen on Facebook, starting April 21 (that’s tomorrow!), and for the following six weeks (not including Sundays), we will discuss Notes From a Blue Bike. Anyone can join, and you’ll have the opportunity to chat with me about the parts of the book you loved, the ones you didn’t understand, and to maybe ask some of your nagging questions. Sound fun?
Here’s how it’ll work—first, buy a copy of the book. Feel free to read it anytime. If you’ve already read it cover to cover, awesome. Skim the pages again, if you like. This will be extremely laid-back and low-pressure—simply add to the conversation where you feel led!
The only two hard rules will be: don’t discuss a part of the book we haven’t yet covered (aka, spoilers), and please don’t discuss until you’ve read the section we’re discussing.
Sound good? All are welcome—seriously. There’s no application or approval process. Simply head here, and click to join. Looking forward to starting tomorrow!
