    schema:description "Summary The authors of "A Trip to the Beach" return with stories, reflections, notes, insights, and a bit of advice on making every day a personal treasure. Full-color photos. Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, Inc. Library Journal Review Stuck in a rut and dreaming of running off to Tahiti? That fantasy can become a reality if you simply heed the advice offered in the Blanchards' uplifting follow-up to A Trip to the Beach (2001). The authors encourage readers to live an "unusual life" one that is odd and wonderful, custom built to individual values and priorities. All that's required, according to the Blanchards, is the "Big Four": passion, location, money, and people. This formula worked for the couple, who left the security of an established business in Vermont to build their dream restaurant on a remote Caribbean island. Brimming with stories, reflections, notes, and occasional sage words of advice, this book is sure to inspire readers to live the life of their dreams. Highly recommended for public libraries. Wendy Lee, Marshall-Lyon Cty. Lib., MN Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From: Reed Elsevier Inc. Copyright Reed Business Information Booklist Review From the authors of A Trip to the Beach (2001) comes another slim but encouraging manifesto brimming with humorous anecdotes, pithy reflections, and wise counsel. Summering in Vermont and spending their winters operating a thriving restaurant in the Caribbean, this power couple seems to have achieved all their dreams by operating by the one simple principle that serves as their guide: If we don't love it, we don't do it. In order to share this deceptively simplistic recipe for personal and professional fulfillment and success, the Blanchards open up their hearts and relay their unique experiences in a series of intimate stories that will appeal to fans of inspirational literature a la Robert Fulghum.
