5.0 out of 5 stars Romancing The Ordinary, 28 Jan. 2003
This book is wonderful! I recommend it to anyone wanting a good, optimistic and inspirational shove in the right direction!! The book breaks itself down in to the twelve months of the year and sub-categories within each month.It can be read beginning from any month of any year it is bought and then during each month after that; giving its reader something to feel good about each time it is opened. If you're feeling a little low, or would simply enjoy being reminded of the wonderful things everyday life has to offer...this is the book for you. The book is bound so beautifully in heavy paper with a 'textured, deckle edging' and ribbon marker, making it feel like an old Victorian book you'd love to find in your grandmother's attic. It is filled with quotes and beautiful phrase in addition to the author's own writing, bringing a smile to the reader's face instantly. Something to read when life seems too hectic and complicated....or a perfect gift for anybody, but especially a female. The 'vintage' sepia photographs in it 'put the icing on the cake'....This is the type of book I wish I'd written myself. I will be keeping this book and re-reading it every year. It's so beautiful that I'll be passing it down to my children....and perhaps my grandchildren!! I will certainly be buying more books by the same author....Sarah Ban Breathnach has really given me a great 'pick me up'.
