So, there is this book. And this book is lovely. Which is fitting because the book is called Looking for Lovely. 🙂 It is written by Annie F. Downs who is just a favorite of the way she writes. I think because I have seen so many videos of her talking that I can kind of read it in her voice? Do you do that? Or am I just weird…lol. I mean, I just noticed this about a friend in our homeschool group. She has such a distinctive way that she talks that anytime I see a facebook update or something, I can totally read it in her voice… Anyway.. ha!
I was sent an advance copy of this book from Annie…what?? I know, right? I am so glad that I was able to read it and take my time. You know, it is in stores today…and if I would have went to the store today to get it..I would have wanted to read the whole thing in one sitting. No no no…you just can’t do that. You have to savor it! Sit down with a coffee or wine or root beer or lemonade, or just grab some chocolate and call it good.. Sit down with something and just read a little bit. Not too much though, because you need to take what you read in.
There is just enough personal stories mixed in with the ‘good stuff’ that make this book a great read. 🙂 She writes about her personal trip of finding the lovely. You can see how this whole book shows her evolving bit by bit. Recurring characters help tie in the various stories that make you laugh, cry or just let out a big ‘ol sigh.
If you are going through things, any sort of things, think about reading this book. It goes on sale today! And I am not saying that because I got this (signed and with confetti included !!!) book from Annie. I am saying that because it is a good read. And I am sure it will be good for you. 🙂
