Awwww shucks -- cute pic!

I received an email this evening as follows:

Dear Patrice,

Thank you for all your effort and dedication to your blog and for allowing those of us planning a move to the Redoubt a daily opportunity to live vicariously through you! I look forward to your posts and thoroughly enjoy your insight. The pictures are grand as well!

We have received a copy of your book, The Simplicity Primer, and I thought you might enjoy knowing that the entire family is taken with it - including my 2.5 year old son. Here he is in the "library" "reading" The Simplicity Primer. (picture attached)

He sits in that rocking chair often and chooses a book that becomes a favorite for a period of time. Yours has been the "one" for some time now! I thought it would be fun to share this with you, so I snapped a photo and was quite surprised it turned out half way descent.

Thank you again.

Blessings and peace,


Is this too cute for words or what??


  1. Way seriously cool, this.

    Humbling experience.

  2. Awww! What a cute picture! Oh, and you're doing fine on the home schooling front too! The little fella has fine taste in his reading material;)

  3. So I am thinking he is six feet tall, and just has the really large print addition on his lap?

  4. You link to Lydia on your sidebar. I'm curious as to what you think about being in service to others. I love your blog and if you hold agreement with her that one should put a nap or leisure time above getting out and making a difference in the world I'd rather not know.

    I'm not trying to stir up trouble, really. I prefer you didn't post this comment actually and just maybe do a service post int he future?


  5. ?? Sorry, Anon 4:24, I'm not quite certain what you're talking about. What does my dog Lydia have to do with napping or making a difference in the world?

  6. Oh my goodness. I forgot your dog is named Lydia. Seriously cracking up on my forgetfulness. Please accept my apologies.

    I'm talking about the blog you link to in your sidebar...Home Living.

    Again, I'm sorry.

  7. Oh, got it. I have a whole bunch of different blogs cross-linked in the sidebar, not all of which I read on a daily basis. Naturally I'm not responsible for the content in any of those blogs. If you have a question about something someone else posted, by all means email their blog and inquire! That's the most direct route.

    And my Lydia LOVES to take naps...

  8. What a darling child! Our dear granddaughter is about the same age and has the same book selection process at the moment - "grownup" books that are favorites and change every week or so :). Too cute. Jennifer in western NC
