The Magnolia Story
Chip and Joanna Gaines
I always knew my husband would be a great father, but I also knew it might take him a few weeks to fall into his new role as 'daddy.' I mean, it took me several weeks to fall into my new role as 'mommy' and, let me honest, I'm still figuring things out. However, I never once worried about my husband leaving the house and forgetting to take our daughter, Shelby, with him.
One of the first sneak peaks into Chip and Joanna's life comes in the form of a story about Joanna going for a run shortly after the birth of their first son, Drake. Chip makes a lavish breakfast for her as a surprise but in the process forgets to take their son to the store with him. It doesn't happen once but twice and the third time, well, what happens in-place of Chip forgetting to take Drake is even more...alarming, yet funny.
If you're a fan of the hit TV show Fixer Upper on HGTV then you know exactly who Chip and Joanna Gaines are and chances are you have fell in love with the dynamic duo just like millions of others have. There's something about their down-to-earth personalities and the humor that Chip sneaks into every episode that's really enjoyable.
I happened upon the show while on maternity leave and lets just say I was hooked after the first episode. Chip decided that tightrope walking across the lake from a houseboat to the dock was a good idea. He fell in and proceeded to do the rest of the show in his undies. The series is sweet, funny and the houses-goodness-they are gorgeous.
The Magnolia Story travels through time with the couple as they share little tidbits about their life and how they ended up where they are. It's a fun read filled with giggles and insight that many of us could use about the simplicity of life and chasing our dreams.
An avid reader with a thirst for knowledge, and adventure through words printed on paper.
