i have dreams, people.  dreams that i’ll wake up and be gisele.  dreams that i’ll one day have a closet full of spring 2012 prada (including that wonky bodysuit thing).  dreams that i publish a best selling book and sign autographs and make ex-boyfriends jealous while wearing spring 2012 prada.

spoiler alert:  i will never be gisele.  that’s just a fact.  and i may never have a closet full of spring 2012 prada.  but some day i may publish a book.  and when i do, i hope it becomes a best seller.  and i hope i get to sign autographs.  and i hope ex-boyfriends will be jealous, because what are they doing with their lives anyway?

and that’s why i hope you’ll support jessie knadler, my pilates teacher in lexington and the only woman i know who could make me want to give it all up and raise chickens.  jessie just published her first book rurally screwed: my life off the grid with the cowboy i love.  i knew i liked jessie for good reason.  good reasons beside the fact that she gave me gwyneth paltrow abs.  according to barnes & noble:

Jessie Knadler was a New York City girl, through and through. An editor for a splashy women’s magazine, she splurged on Miu Miu, partied hard, lived for Kundalini yoga, and dated a man-boy whose complexion was creamier than her own….Jessie impulsively ditched Manhattan for an authentic existence, and an authentic man. Almost overnight, she was canning and sewing, making jerky, chopping firewood, and raising chickens.

a city girl who moves to the country, trades in her closet full of designer duds for a walmart supercenter, and a life of canning and kiddos and her cowboy husband (and teaching a fantastic pilates class on tuesday and thursday nights).  she gave up new york city and partying and miu miu!  she did all of this for love.

and that’s the stuff that dreams are made of.

so buy her book!

    Aaaah, you’re so sweet, Jenny! Thank you! Still drooling over that big container of homemade granola you gave me before you decamped for greener pastures. I think I ate it all (by the handful) in less than a week!
