Hi Nancy, I received your book as a gift, and it's helped me both get through tough days and simply widen my smile on good ones. Thanks for brightening the world a bit.
This is such a sweet message! Thank you—it means a lot. :)
And I’ll take this opportunity to write a little anecdote…
Around the time the Just Little Things book was just released, I went to Urban Outfitters because I was told they started selling it in stores. I was super excited and weirdly nervous about getting to see my book sold in a store where I knew so many people shop and would see it. Anyway, I went in, and before I even arrived at the books section, I saw a girl there with my Post-It colored book in hand, flipping through the pages with the biggest smile on her face. Seeing this was such a surprise and just made me feel the feels. :’) I thought about introducing myself as the author of the book, but I didn’t want to disturb the moment and just pretended I was just another shopper checking out the books there. But I’ll never forget how overcome with joy I was to see a stranger appreciating my work for the first time in real life. It was really great.
