It’s Settle(ment)ed!

They love me in Jamestown! The first permanent English Colony, founded in Virginia in 1607, has my entire series available for purchase in their gift shop.

Thank you SO MUCH to Doug, aka the “Haphazard Countryman” (the voice behind Concrete to Chickens) for snapping this photo and sending it to me.
I spent 8 very formative years in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Virginia, traveling often with family and schools to Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg to visit the historical sites. The fact that my series is now being carried in and supported by somewhere that is so tied to my childhood means more than words can express.

    I didn't realize that…I was born and spent most of my life in Portsmouth, VA. :) Funny we both end up in Candler, eh?

    Congrats on the beautiful book display!

  • What a feeling this must be!

    Great placement on an eye level shelf. That was so nice of him to send you photo. Next time I'm in Jamestown, I will definitely stop into the bookshop, especially now that I know they carry my favorite reading material.

    Hey that's great! It is kinda funny for me too because I'm actually living in Portsmouth, Va @ the moment. Can't wait to get to check out your books! Hope you have a great weekend.

    Congratulations! I lucked out in that amazon recommended your books to me based on other purchases – I love your dairy book (I'm picking up my Excalibur 3900 tomorrow…yogurt, here I come!).

    I live in Virginia Beach….we've talked before about me not being able to have chickens where I live….I SO wish we could. I have your book about Keeping Chickens….and dream as I read through it! I love your blog….and wish I could live in the mountains of North Carolina!
