When people ask me what I do, I stumble over how to answer. Mom? Author? Dog Mom? Executive Assistant? All of the above I guess?! Life sure is interesting...I did a Zoom interview this morning with @abc27news about my books coming out next week. Then I went fishing with the boys and the pup. #lbarrybooks #janeofalltrades #childrensbookstagram

The house with the blue door.💙 When we did the renovation I was pretty low key about things...except that I wanted a blue front door. I’m so happy with how it turned out! Do you have one place or item in your house or apartment that you just 💯 love?
I also think Ahsoka adds to it sitting pretty with me in the reflection getting her attention.😂 #gooddog #nottinghill

What they say is true. Having a puppy is a lot like having a newborn! I don’t mind the early morning snuggles at all though and the reading time. I finished The Mercies by @kiran_mh and it was beautiful! And the cover🥰. I ordered it from @blackwellbooks so I could have this gorgeous work. I’m going to post a close up of the cover and the art inside the jacket to my stories as soon as I can get up from the couch. 🐾

Every day while I’m in Pennsylvania I go for a walk (uphill both ways, swipe for proof) and listen to Girl, Wash Your Face by @msrachelhollis . I know I’m super late to this party, but at least I’m here now! It’s interesting because as you might have heard, she’s getting a divorce and some people are pissed. She talks in one of the chapters about meeting her husband, their relationship, their intimacy and how he’s her favorite person in the world. But, she also emphasizes grace and how other people’s opinions of us are none of our business. It must have taken a lot of courage for her to speak her truth and come to this decision, knowing that she’d receive backlash. People are allowed to change. That’s how we grow, right?

I’ve been taking my boys to my elementary school to play while we’re in PA. It is such a special, tiny school. One of the coolest things I’ve accomplished is reading my book Journey to Constellation Station to the kids there a few years ago. 🥰 Don’t forget it’s available to preorder now!!! Link in bio.
.
It was really fun sharing my memories with my kids, and we lucked out as there were construction vehicles and piles of rocks to take beautifully posed IG pics on!😆Swipe to see a few.

This cover sums up my feelings. 🙄@landsend sponsored an article/segment/interview that said, “And backpacks are the most important piece of the back-to-school puzzle.” What??? No they are not! Kindness, inclusivity, acceptance - these are all good examples of messaging that should be used around back to school! I totally get selling a product, but @landsend please think about what your message is saying!

The reason I “took the plunge” and put my heart and soul into my first book Journey to Constellation Station🥰. My boys inspired me to write this book, and I hope it inspires all who read it to look up at the stars. 🌟 We’re all under the same sky...it might look different but it’s above us all. ❤️Pre-order link in my bio! #lbarrybooks

I really need to work on my tree pose.😂
☕️>🌳
Do you wear actual pjs to bed? I used to throw on whatever old shirt I had, but after receiving this @cozyearthbedding bamboo pj set, I’m totally converted. They are SO soft and comfortable and hello, pockets! And for those of us shall we say, blessed in the chest, NONE of the buttons popped open during the night! #curvyfashion

I grabbed this off my mom’s library shelf and it’s such a fun book! It’s just what I need right now. I brought the boys to PA so I could have some help and so the boys could swim and roam around the countryside for a few weeks. Book by @kirsty_greenwood and suit by @summersalt 📖👙

What’s a book habit you have? Whenever I pick up a book I open it to a random middle page and read a sentence or two. If the writing is good, awesome. If not, I usually put it back. Zarya by @author.jackiem passed the test for me, and of course the subject sounds like a great escape - YA science fiction.

Yah I work out to be healthy and more fit, but also so I can eat all the snacks! #ad @shrewdfoodco makes it easy to choose yummy and healthier snacks, like these Cookies & Cream Protein Puffs. They taste awesome and have 13 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbs.

Have you tried them yet? So good!

Last week my sons graduated from Kindergarten and 2nd grade. I’m crazy proud of the award my 2nd grader earned - The Fairness Award for always believing that all people have value. He wants to be a paleontologist and my youngest wants to be a “normal person,” whatever that means!!!😂

Recently I’ve been emotionally spent and used what energy I’ve had on sharing #blacklivesmatter posts to my stories. A few of the books I’ve ordered to educate myself on being anti-racist have come in, so I’ll be reading those and sharing. #educateyourself

A little (lot) about lbarrybooks...

Lindsay C. Barry grew up in the only town in Pennsylvania. She developed her love of reading and writing at a young age, and even more so when she stumbled upon a magical world called Narnia.

With her mother as her high school English teacher, and drama teacher...and creative writing teacher, writing was ingrained in Lindsay's upbringing. Graduating from The Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Communication, Lindsay started her career in the advertising world where she helped manage accounts.

During an internship, she may or may not have dressed up as a strawberry and run around a baseball field (she was hired after that internship so it was worth it).

Later, Lindsay switched career paths and worked as an executive assistant in an executive search firm. The best day of work was meeting Robert Redford and having him say, "Oh hi Lindsay!"

During her time living in Washington, D.C., Lindsay met her future husband and three years later they welcomed their first son. Two years and two days later, they welcomed their second son (and decided two boys made their family complete).

Now with two boys, two cats, two guppies with ever-changing names, two parakeets and one red Beta fish named Goldie, Lindsay considers herself a Mom-Preneur and expert good night story reader.

Her sons' love of trains and outer space and her love of getting them to go to sleep inspired her first children's book, Journey to Constellation Station.

...and she still loves visiting her hometown of Bloomsburg, especially during Fair season where she can be found in line for a potato pancake at the green stand. It's a Bloomsburg thing.
