When I started blogging, becoming famous or making money sharing my family’s stories was, literally, the furthest thing from my mind. In fact, when I discovered Ree Drummond (aka the Pioneer Woman) I still didn’t realize that there was a career hidden in my hobby.
As I was checking in with our sister sites this week, this review on 5 Minutes for Books of the Ree Drummond’s book, The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels – a Love Story really resonated with me. As a fellow blogger who has actually met Ree, I have to agree with Jennifer’s statement: If she wasn’t so charming and talented, I think we’d just have to hate her.
Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond took any sort of idea of recognition that a little blogger could hope to get, and shattered it. Cookbook author (with a second coming out next month), Food Network show host, and now her love story/memoir The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels–a Love Storyis being released in paperback.
If she wasn’t so charming and talented, I think we’d just have to hate her.
The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels tells about how she met the man of her dreams for whom she changed all of her plans. It’s a delightful story, and one that will hopefully help you remember your own heart-pounding days of first-love (or encourage you to keep hanging on and waiting for Mr. Right to come into your life). Yes, it’s sweet, but it’s a little spicy as well, with make-out sessions and fairly chaste burning and yearning to rival any YA literature out there. It makes it read a bit like a romance novel/fairy tale, and maybe that’s what it is.
