My crybaby face after finding out that my book #ruraldiaries is #5 on the New York Times Non-fiction bestseller list. I am ………overwhelmed. I threw myself into manual labor today. Got the alpaca sheared. And then returned to painting the inside of our home. Manual labor calms my brain down, and doing press for the book while running the farm and raising the kids and doing our show #fridaynightinwiththemorgans for @amc, and making masks ……it’s all had me feeling a bit chaotic. @jeffreydeanmorgan Is the only thing keeping my head above water. My teammate. My love. Thank you, Jeffrey. For all of it. So I paint to calm down. In the midst of transforming the office from a rusty red to a shade called “The Dark Arts”, I got the phone call from my publisher Katy Hamilton @harperonebooks , my agent @ajmattero and my lifelong manager @the_woman176. Having a nice cry and getting back to work. But I wanted to stop and record this moment and say THANK YOU. Thanks for buying my book. Thanks for humoring me. Thanks for seeing the magic in @themischieffarm . Xoxoxoxoxo

It’s no secret that I’m a cryer. I’m for sure crying now. My book #ruraldiaries is out today. (Link in bio) There’ve been a lot of articles that have come out, profiling different parts of the book. My relationship with @jeffreydeanmorgan. My career and some of the hurdles I faced as a young actress. My town, and it’s beautiful sense of community. Over and over again I have been asked why I wrote this book. The answer I give largely revolves around social media, and the illusion that other people’s lives are glamorous and carefree. I know I have felt that stab of envy, when I see someone living their best life, with their perfect body and perfect job and perfect everything. I am a messy lady. And so I wanted to write a book that glamorized the tiny, everyday victories in life. Fresh cut grass. A cup of good coffee. Movie night in bed with the kids. But there was something about the way a female reporter asked me about the book the other day that stopped me in my tracks. Just the way she worded the question. Really made me stop and think about the “why” question. I was overwhelmingly pregnant with our daughter when I started writing. The bulk of the book was completed during the first year of her life. I had to reconcile this vivacious, lovely, little wildcat with the pregnancies that we had lost. Particularly the first miscarriage. The baby we named. The baby I still think about all the time. To go from constant mourning to bliss is a strange and complicated journey. I can look at the book now and see myself trying to work it all out. So that is why I wrote the book. To create a path from grief to joy. And now, with hindsight as my friend, I can see the magic in all of it. Magic abounds. And as proof, my sweet angel @joylenz sent me a box of magic just this morning. I could have gotten a bucket of diamonds, and I wouldn’t have loved them as much as I love these oranges and lemons. Thank you to every person who played a part in this book. But my biggest thank you is to @jeffreydeanmorgan , for living through it with me and loving me in spite of myself. Xxx
