When I found out our head Queen was publishing a non-fiction book I couldn’t wait to read it. So I ordered it the day it came out from Am.a.zon. here is an easy link if you haven’t bought your copy yet of Life From Scratch
Now I will be honest I am not a big reader and if I do it’s usually about animals, marriage, god or vampires. It’s rare that I start a book and finish it right away. I usually lose interest but not this time. I finished it within a couple of days. I love the main characters name Rachel(wink to my princess). I loved the steamy scenes with her spanish lover. But mostly I loved the flow of the story and the humor. I think the author Melissa Ford is hysterical so funny she could give Chelsea Han.d.ler a run for her money.
As part of this book tour we were asked to answer 3 questions which pertain to the book. So here goes:
Blogging plays a key role for Rachel in the growth she experiences throughout the novel. How has blogging affected who you are and/or how you see the world? Blogging has given my spirit a place to let go. I can talk about anything I want and release the emotions I sometimes keep to myself. It has connected me to woman who I might not have never known. It has made my journey of infertility easier to travel.
Rachel’s blog gets very popular when she wins a blogging award and she starts averaging about one hundred thousand hits per day. Would you want your blog to become that popular or would you prefer to stay smaller? Well the inner celebrity in me would like it to hit the big time but not about infertility. I’ve never wanted infertility to define who I was, it’s just a part of my life’s journey. I knew god had a plan for me it was just a matter of trusting his path for me. Now I would love to become a world-famous blogger for say cooking, parenting, or cooking for children.
Rachel talks about the kinship of marriage, and being on the “crazy ride” together is better than waiting outside in line. Do we rush to/stay in marriage because the alternative is too isolating to think about? I took my sweet time when it came to marriage and Mark took even longer. We both felt marriage is for a life time and you have to pick the right person. Marriage to me is a choice, a choice to stay and fight for our love or walk away. Everyday I get up I chose to love Mark for one more day. Some days I don’t have to choose it’s just easy to love him. Others it takes everything I have not to pack it up. Loneliness has not been a reason I would stay, love is. I love Mark and am committed to our marriage. Now if something were to happen(abuse, infidelity, etc) I would choose divorce because I am worth more than that and deserve better than that.
So there you have it. My little stop on the Life From Scratch book tour. Now head back to Write Mind Open Heart to continue the tour.
