words in print

fresh home from a newly formed biz/book discussion group with a few lovely femmes. such a treat to connect (+ bond over vino) with like-minded ladies. truly refreshing.

this lovely book, choosing me before we, was sent to me in early form to read and comment on. i got the final version in the mail a few weeks ago and took it with me to peruse while writing last week. late last week i turned it over, read the endorsements, and thought "ah, i wish they'd used mine."

lo and behold, i look at the small print on the cover a few moments later and there is my quote. i was delighted. squealed with joy.

i so savor moments of surprise such as these and wanted to share the darling cover. new world library and author christine arylo did a beautiful job on this book.

interviewing two amazing ladies tomorrow night for the podcast: christine mason miller and kelly rae roberts. i hope you continue to glean inspiration for living a mindful, creative, vibrant lifestyle through all the delightful people we get to "meet" together through tranquility du jour.

congrats on your quote landing the cover, kimberly-- so fantastic!

loved the zen podcast from this week.
i actually got into a little fender bender while listening to it in my car and was able to keep my cool and not freak out. it worked, because the person i nicked said the little scratch didn't matter since her car was older and she completely let me off the hook!
zen at it's very best :-)

I felt the same way the first time I was asked to endorse a book. I thought to myself, "wow, little ol' me?!" It's nice to have these little affirmations, especially when you receive the final version and see your little quote on the cover.

I felt the same way several years ago when my letter to yoga journal was published. Not quite a book quote, but still pretty cool to me.

Oh, and I ordered this same book from Amazon early this week as a V-day gift to myself. :)
