Here today with a book recommendation!!! I sat outside Sunday morning, in the warmest February sunshine, finishing the second half of The Magnolia Story. It’s a quick read– perfect for to read on a lazy weekend or to tuck in your carry-on for a flight.
My friend Nicole gave me the book when she was in town the other week. We’re both the biggest Fixer Upper fans, and probably 60% of our text messages revolve around the show and/or Chip and Jo’s perfect relationship. I actually think we need to take a girls’ trip to Waco, Texas now.
If you haven’t watched the show yet, what’s wrong with you? Just kidding 😉 I think you have to be a fan of the show to love the book as it’s essentially a behind-the-scenes of their relationship and the story of their success as a couple, a family, a business, and a television show.
I love the way they chose to write the book (Chip or Jo writing with the other chiming in) because it reads exactly how they interact on the show. Which is why we all love them, right?! It’s got their signature witty banter.
As far as the actual content goes, it can get a little hunky-dory/kumbaya now and then, but it’s overall a very optimistic and inspiring story. It’s crazy to see how it all happened and that their relationship with each other is really what makes the whole thing click.
Okay, but really, I’m ready to go to Waco.
