I know, odd combo considering I live in the city and am happily married but both dating books and farm life have been in the conversation lately. A lady friend was raving about You Lost Him at Hello (I know, brutal title!) a few weeks ago and when someone raves about a book I read it. No matter what the subject. That, and we all know I love any kind of self improvement book. And I gotta say, You Lost Him at Hello is applicable to anyone - no matter what your relationship status is. It's funny and so true. No fluff but rather practical wake up calls and simple ways to make the most of every interaction you have. Go. Buy. It.
Annd farm life. I have always day dreamed about living on a farm with horses, an organic garden and big pond. All things I have no business tending to (at least at the moment) but a girl can dream. And this dream started with Mark Badgley and James Mischka's Kentucky farm featured in Elle Decor years ago. Take a look and try not to fall in love. I dare you.
