The big red bows and twinkling lights whisper of the joys or impending doom of the season.

We hope you are looking forward to the holidays or at least have a plan of escape.

That is where we come in.

  1. This has most certainly made my day a bit brighter! I have been looking forward to getting a chance to read your book, and now there are no excuses to not make the time. Thank you!

  2. A very generous offer indeed. Spoiler alert: “Fun is all you have.” I’ve always been in it for the fun, and it still surprises me that so many people seem to be in it for the boredom or for the misery. Your book is a great example of how people can turn away from the messages that urge us to ever more complacent conformity, and instead create a life that is personal and vibrant every day.

  6. Wow, you wonderful Hoombas, that is a really valuable gift! I already picked up my copy and can attest to the fact that the value is there!!! Someone once said that you don’t own a book until you read it…and your’s is worth owning!

    • Ree!! We appreciate your feedback and kind comments always. It is also good for others to see that someone can read it and live to tell about it!

      I hope you’re enjoying a fine California day. Are there any other types?

  7. Oh my! Thank you so very much.

  8. Wow…what a beautiful gesture and gift…and my Christmas stockings aren’t even up yet!!

    All kidding aside, thank you both so much, I just downloaded the PDF version and I look forward to snuggling up against my computer monitor in the next few days and reading your words of joy, fun and I would assume, some pain as well.

    Thank you both again and take care.

    Your friend,

    • Lyle!! You are very welcome, and we are thrilled you’d consider reading it. There are many parts that may resonate with you. You seemed to get this simple thing down a bit ahead of us. Hopefully it will give you a few chuckles too. And, if it totally stinks, please stop reading. Heck, it’s free, and life is too short to waste on a bad book. (That’s what I tell my students …well, I leave the part out about life being short as they’re all in elementary, and I don’t want them to think death is on their doorstep!)

      Have a great one!

  9. Wow – thanks so much CJ and Tammy, what a great gift for us all! I look forward to getting my copy and reading it!

    • Hayley!! We hope you enjoy it. Unfortunately it doesn’t come in print. If it did, you would at least be able to use the pages for something else if it stinks (coasters, scrap paper, fire starters). I hope you’re having a beautiful day!

  10. You two are too kind, and if I didn’t already happily own a copy, I would snatch one up this minute!

  11. You guys are so sweet. Thank you! Maybe the book will even make an appearance over on Erin Reads… :)
    Erin recently posted..Ooh! Ask Me!: “How do I consistently sound like me?”My Profile

    • Erin!! What a kind thought, but I do believe Erins Reads is a reputable site! ;)

      I saw Muriel Barbery’s book there and immediately knew it was quality. I didn’t read the review, but I hope you loved it as much as we did. Talk about vocabulary!!!

      Have a great weekend, and I hope you’re getting to ride some trolleys!

  12. Well this definitely catches my attention. Any suggestions for the best format or should I just pick what works easiest for me?
    Alex @ Searching for Happy recently posted..Pushing your comfort zoneMy Profile

    • Alex!! Once you click on the link that brings you to the book on Smashwords, they have a list of devices and formats. I have a Kindle, so that is what I chose. I don’t have Internet on my phone, but I have been told they are not the best device on which to read a book. A couple of friends have actually downloaded the PDF, but I would imagine it’s not too comfy to cuddle up with PCs or laptops! I hope you can find a format that works for you. Please let us know if we can help in any way!

      Happy Lemon Zinger to you!

  13. Awhhh yeahhhh!!

    Looking forward to reading guys!

  14. Happy Thanksgiving! and an early Merry Christmas to you both!

    I took advantage of getting your book a couple of months ago. An excellent read!

    It was time well spent and provided great insight into how you two have achieved happiness.

    Would you be working on a sequel?

    • Lori!! You are very kind to say that, and we really appreciate you! No sequel yet. We are figuring out lots of other things and making time to watch the squirrels frolic about. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving too!

  15. What a nice gift! Thanks guys and happy holidays!

  16. Dang, you guys! I saw this a few weeks ago and finally have time to come over and snag it! I’ve been meaning to pick this up for months but it keeps slipping down the list. Now there’s no excuse. I’ll be sure to share the love on my side as a thank you!

    • PT Nick!! We are so glad you’re here and able to snag it. Warning: You could begin talking to squirrels after reading. Wait, you already talk to us, so I guess that counts as talking to squirrels.

      Hope you and the PT family are enjoying the holidays!!!

  17. Happy holidays! Hopefully you haven’t updated because you are out there enjoying life! What a nice gift, I’m excited to grab it and read over the holidays.

    • Daisy!! Happy Holidays to you right back! We are enjoying life and getting some things done which has prevented our writing. I miss it! But, when you enjoy something you find a way to get back to it. I’m composing a post right now and hope to have it out soon!

      We hope everything is going great for you!
