It's about time I explained why I have not been blogging very often over the last 6 months or so. It is not for lack of desire or ideas for new posts. In fact, I've been writing voraciously about green and healthy living just about every second of the day I can manage, this whole time. I've been a little shy about letting the cat out of the bag, but I can't keep it in any longer...
I'm writing a book!!!
It will be called Practically Green and it's due out in October of this year! It's about creating a green and healthy home life for yourself and your family - with an emphasis on simplicity and creativity. Using my own experiences as a starting point, I talk about how to lessen your impact on the planet and strengthen the health of your family while taking care of the primary tasks of day-to-day life.
Now I know there are a ton of great books about green living already out there. My hope is that the creative, do-it-yourself aspect of my book is what will make it stand out as unique. I've always been a DIY'er at heart and in the book I've got everything from making your own beauty products and cleaning supplies to sewing crafts out of old sweaters and refashioning thrift store clothes into unique designs!
The book is designed to be super easy to read - with lots of bullet points and charts instead of loads of heavy text that might put you to sleep. My goal was to provide lots of helpful information but in a fun and interesting format. It's been loads of fun to write and create and I can't wait to share more with you!
That said, I'm not supposed to give away much more about it quite yet. I'm still in the editing stage and the book is far from complete. But I've been told the book will be available for preorder on Amazon in the next few months! I'll believe it when I see it - a dream come true!
