Book Review: The Magnolia Story


The guiltiest of pleasures! I love Fixer Upper for all the reasons you might expect. It's funny, cute, inspiring, and simple. There's no conflict, or bad guys, or explosions, or skin-tight suits. Just a Texan couple, making houses beautiful. The Magnolia Story details the life of Chip and Joanna before the show; how they met, how they came to flip houses, and how they got to be on TV. Their story is sweet and heartfelt, and it's clear that they had to work to get to where they are. The book was a sweet treat, a sunny and happy break from the rainy Portland winter and January melancholy that I really needed. If you love the show like I do, you'll definitely love the book! Plain and simple.
