In this book the author of You Are Your Choices and Things I Want My Daughters to Know offers a variety of ideas for achieving a gracious lifestyle even as we juggle family responsibilities, jobs, and social obligations. As a busy professional and dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother who revels in the energy of the city and basks in the tranquility of the village, Alexandra Stoddard is positive and practical; her path toward gracious living does not require money or "extra hands" around the house.
"This self-help title reveals how to live within the structure of a hectic lifestyle, and how to find joy in change. This isn't just a general guide: Stoddard uses as examples her own small pleasures in life and shows how to locate and appreciate rejuvenating environments and experiences."—Midwest Book Review
