July 2018: Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod

I read this book shortly after it came out a few years ago.  After being enchanted by Janice MacLeod's work on Etsy and following her hilarious and inspiring blog about a watercolorist's life in Paris, I couldn't wait to read her book.

This book is my kind of beach read.  It's fun, humorous, and inspiring - it might even give you wanderlust.  MacLeod has a way of making unusual connections that cut straight through the bull and leave you giggling - like the wisdom she finds while sorting through her underwear drawer.  

In a nutshell, Janice finds herself burnt out by West Coast corporate life and decides to make a change.  She downsizes, simplifies, saves up, and heads to Paris with her watercolor set.

This is a story about choosing your own path, finding love, and budding entrepreneurship - and it all unfolds in Paris.  I'm not quite as moony about Paris as some, but having lived there with my watercolor set, this delighted even this semi-jaded pseudo-ex-Parisian.

Hope you have fun with this one! To join the discussion just use #greenleafblueberrybooks to share your thoughts!
