Found the Off Button

Typically I go a million miles an hour trying to balance roughly 10 things at once while standing on my head blindfolded. I am happy to report, however, that my summer break from school and work has led me to discover the off button. I am still doing little projects – writing, some book events,… Read more »

BEA Recap

Book Expo America 2011 was quite a whirlwind! I left our homestead for a few days to fly to NYC and have a couple signings at the event. It was the first time I have ever been to BEA and it was crazy! I was staying right by Times Square and the city was hot… Read more »

Hello Book Expo America

Hello again New York! I am here for just a short stint to attend the Book Expo America, or BEA event. It is the biggest book event in the country and I will have a couple signings tomorrow. The first one is at the “author table” from 11:30a-12:30p and then at the Fulcrum booth in… Read more »

I’m Somebody!

I am honored to have had my first book signing event at Powell’s City of Books in Portland this past Sunday. When I arrived, I saw my name on their list of author events and my nervousness was replaced with excitement.My mind raced immediately to that scene from the movie The Jerk. Steve Martin’s character… Read more »

Come say hello and talk homesteading with me! This Sunday, April 17th, from 4:00p-6:00p I will be signing my new book at Powell’s downtown location on Burnside. It’s such an honor to be invited for an event at Powell’s. I blush just thinking about it and need to pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming…. Read more »

It feels good, but it feels different from the frantic do-ten-things-at-once-pace that I typically operate at. I’m not doing all… Read more »

Goodbye New York

My summer in New York was a fun, yet mixed, experience and the road calls me West. Goodbye New York parks that helped inspire my design aesthetic. Goodbye take out, delivery and crazy food combinations like s’mores french toast. Goodbye gazillion H&M’s stores. They say one is coming to Portland, but I know the selection… Read more »

Road Trip: 5,000 Miles

Upon leaving New Orleans, a somewhat morbid part of me wanted to visit the Gulf of Mexico to either see the oil spill firsthand or catch a glimpse of the white sand beaches before they are gone. I stood on the beach in Mississippi days before the oil would start lapping up. It’s hard to… Read more »

Road Trip: 4,000 Miles

The car hiccup in Austin meant I was on the road a day later into New Orleans, but I was on the road once more. The nine hour drive was broken up with a stop at the Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site in Martinville, Louisiana. I met some great new trees here that I would see… Read more »
