I love the wonderful little surprises that greet me at work. A customer recently mentioned a book by Reeve Lindbergh (daughter of aviator Charles Lindbergh and author/aviator Anne Morrow Lindbergh) which mentions our socks! Here’s an excerpt from the book:
Ladies, I give you Accessories! Hats, scarves, earrings, pins, and socks, the brighter the better, especially the socks.
I have cheered myself through two weeks of rainy weather and a set of abnormal test results, very scary ones, simply by wearing colorful socks. I have a large collection. My socks are of various colors and motifs, and may be decorated with anything from white sheep on neon-green fabric to red hot peppers against a sophisticated black wool blend. Where I live there is a “Vermont Sock Lady,” too, an entrepreneurial genius who understands the power of footwear. She has created a line of vibrant hosiery, every single sock a little different from every other, in irresistible colors and one-of-a-kind patterns. She markets these with the inspiring thought: “Life Is Too Short For Matching Socks.”
Reeve is another Vermonter, enjoying her farmstead and sharing her life’s experiences through her fabulous writing with her most recent book being Forward From Here: Leaving Middle Age–and Other Unexpected Adventures
Thank you to Reeve for so thoroughly enjoying our socks and mentioning them along with some fabulous compliments in your book. I love hearing how much our socks are appreciated and I hope many of our sock fans pick up and read your book!
