I am excited to share with my readers a new project.
 I've begun a new blog called Little House Companion.  Together, we'll be exploring the the pioneer world of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Edited: It's now The Laura Ingalls Wilder Companion to match my book! Find the blog at

I will be sharing recipes, activities, and information related to the Little House books in addition to other resources like books and websites.
Please visit Little House Companion.  I will likely only post once or twice a week, so you may want to sign up for emails so you don't miss a post.  I also have a separate Facebook and Twitter account.  

Maybe you are wondering if This Simple Home will continue.  Let me assure my readers I will continue writing here.  However, my family needs to be my priority, so I will split my writing time between the two blogs.  Writing well takes time, so please be patient with me.  

If you are an adult fan of the Little House books, you might be interested to know that you can pre-order Laura Ingalls Wilder's annotated AUTObiography, called Pioneer Girl.  At the time of this writing, you can save 32% off the cover price.  I had the opportunity to read the typed manuscript a couple years ago of this, but I can't wait to read it in book form.  If you are interested in my initial (though clouded with baby-fog) thoughts, you can read my review.

Thanks for your support!
