She’s a Country Girl

7 Jun


Today I wish a high school and college classmate of mine, Sarah Reijonen a happy pub day! Her debut memoir, “Country Girl: Letting Love and Wanderlust Take the Reins” is released today!

Her memoir shares her story of  how she quit her job, sold their house and traveled the world with her husband. Over the years I’ve kept tabs on Sarah with her entertaining blog posts about her experiences drooling over all the exotic and beautiful places they visited.

After we graduated high school, Sarah and I ended up in the same freshmen dorm towers at Washington State University (go Cougs!). Later on in college I joined her on staff at The Daily Evergreen and during our senior year we took a writing class taught by Buddy Levy (yes, the same Buddy Levy of the show “Decoded” on The History Channel!). Let me tell you, the girl can write! I’m so excited to get my hands on a copy of “Country Girl” and read more about her experiences and travels.

“This conversational memoir, full of humor and sass but also heart, recounts the tales of an unexpected wanderer. Sarah Reijonen tells the story of how she survives her first year of marriage, only to turn her world upside down with seven months of globetrotting. She quits her job and sells her house and 80 acres to travel the world with her husband. While on the road, Reijonen learns to question success and love—with the help of a few cold ones and some much-needed soul searching. This introspection leads Reijonen to a new outlook on life and shows her what it means to be happy in her own boots.” — book description on

I will feature Sarah on the blog with a Q and A interview in the near future, but until then trust me when I say you’ll want to read this!

Congrats Sarah!
