Recently, I pulled up my carpet in this space and laid down laminate flooring, spending a lot of time in front of this huge mirror. And I noticed a few things. 1) The whiteness of my legs has never been so blinding in August. Moving off my Kansas acreage and being planted in the middle of a city kept me inside more. 2) I’m not nearly as thin as I’d thought. Catching glimpses of myself while working, instead of standing in front of a mirror with my gut sucked in proved that. 3) I love this space with the vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, sky lights, patio door, and bay window with a window seat, and I’m very grateful to be living here (especially now that I’ve gotten rid of the horribly stained carpet!).
While The Stubborn Princess is a fun, rhyming story with great illustrations that little girls love, it also teaches lessons about the cost of neglecting the simple disciplines of life and the danger of ignoring reality checks along the way.
The Stubborn Princess is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble in paperback form. To get an autographed hardcover, go to my website, JodiBowersox.com.
