book i LOVE: project happily ever after

Project Happily Ever After: Saving Your Marriage When the Fairytale Falters by the amazingly eloquent Alisa Bowman is one of the best books I have read in a very, very long time. I know, it seems like I say that I love books a lot (and I do), but this one is different. Seriously. This is going on my 10-relationship-books-you-should-read-before-you-die list. Yep, I went there. Now are you ready to take me seriously?

Many of you might be thinking: "I have a great relationship, why would I need to read this book?" That's actually the mindset I was in when it arrived on my doorstep. And then I quickly realized that this is not just a save-your-failing-marriage book. No sir. I mean, don't get me wrong- this is a wonderfully insightful book for individuals who need a little or a ton of help with their marriages, but it's also a love story; an incredibly inspirational love story. And, the best part is that this love story is being told to you by your new BFF, Alisa Bowman. I say that because that's how she makes you feel as a reader. Somehow, she understands what you're going through in your own relationship- the good, the bad, and the ugly- and she tells you intimate details about her own relationship. Alisa let's you into her world and it's shocking how similar the two of you are. Her perception of marriage is spot-on to what I (and many of you) have felt or will feel as you navigate through love, marriage, and child-raising.

The book reads like a really interesting story from your favorite fairytale with chapters that tell Alisa's voyage from being a single fair maiden, meeting her prince, having her prince turn into an inconsiderate frog, starting a project, and having her frog turn back into a prince. As the book description states, "It bravely tells the story of how [Alisa] went from wishing her husband dead to renewing her wedding vows." It truly is a happily ever after story.

The way that Alisa candidly discusses her last-ditch effort at saving her marriage and allows you to intimately peak into her thoughts during the process makes her book incredibly captivating (I think I might have read the first 5 chapters in one day). She's open, genuine, sincere, and pretty darn funny too.

There were several aspects of this book that either deeply moved me, made me take a step back and think for a minute (or ten), caused me to laugh out loud, or intrigued me to continue reading. Project Happily Ever After is definitely a book I LOVE. You will also love this book. Yes, each and every one of you. I'm certain of it. So, get in a comfy chair, relax, and enjoy the journey- Alisa's journey.
