What Every Woman Should Have & Know


  • one old love she can imagine going back to and one who reminds her how far she has come...
  • enough money within her control to move out & rent a place of her own even if she never wants to or needs to
  • something perfect to wear if an employer or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour
  • a youth she's content to leave behind
  • a past juicy enough she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age
  • a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra
  • one friend who always makes her laugh and one who lets her cry
  • a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family
  • eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored
  • a feeling of control over her destiny

  • how to fall in love without losing herself
  • how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship...AND how to change a tire!!!
  • when to try harder & when to walk away
  • that she can't change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents
  • that her childhood may not have been perfect but it's over
  • what she would and wouldn't do for love and more
  • how to live alone even if she doesn't like it
  • whom she CAN trust, whom she CAN'T trust, and why she shouldn't take it personally
  • where to go...whether it be her best friend's kitchen table or a charming inn in the woods...when her soul needs soothing
  • what she can and can't accomplish in a day, month, and year.
