85,000 words, 6 months writing the manuscript, 4+ months of pulling my hair out over edits, 2 photo shoots, 3 days recording the audio book, 56 podcast interviews discussing the content.
This project has changed me forever.
And today Old-Fashioned on Purpose FINALLY makes its way into the world!
To celebrate, I want to share a few of my favorite quotes from the book:
“The more I turned to these old-fashioned practices, the more I was able to connect with what truly matters. It’s an awakening to the new and a returning to the old, somehow rolled into one.”
(From Chapter 1)
“The magic of an old-fashioned on purpose lifestyle is that we don’t have to do any of it… But these are the exact opportunities that will allow us to become who we were always meant to be.”
(From Chapter 3)
“In an era that tries to separate us from understanding how our food gets to our table, choosing an intimate knowledge of what we eat is revolutionary.”
(From Chapter 5)
“This book is a rallying cry. I picture people like you and me carefully packing these timeless principles in our suitcases and gripping them tightly while we charge headfirst in to the unknown. These old-fashioned principles will hold true, just like they always have.”
(From the Conclusion)
It’s surreal to see people posting pictures holding the book… For so long, this book only lived in my own mind and laptop. And now it’s making its way across the country. It’s surreal.
But… I need to call in a favor.
