The Unlikely Lavender Queen

The Unlikely Lavender Queen is a book by a very talented author named Jeannie Ralston.  It is a memoir about her experience moving to the Texas Hill Country just outside of Austin from the metropolis that is New York City.  After moving to Blanco Texas, Jeannie and her husband set about into converting their property into the first of many lavender farms that now dot the area. I don't know if it is my love of lavender or how I can totally relate to Jeannie's experience about moving from a big city to the Texas Hill Country (I am a transplant from Miami), but I think that this book is spectacular.  I wish everyone would read it!  You will laugh, cry and maybe even see a little of yourself in Jeannie's experience. Jeannie rocks!  She is donating proceeds from all purchases of her book made through Amazon.com to a different charity each month.

It sounds like such a good book! Resonated with me since I am considering moving out of the big city, not sure where yet LOL I am an adventurer so who knows I may actually end up in Texas!
