    Alright, before anyone accuses me of being political, this is not that. This is me appreciating a book about a woman who used to be First Lady, one whom I respect and admire for her intelligence, her wit, her appreciation of the little things. I love how she gets right in there and gives big hugs and chats about anything and everything. And I love how she loves her dogs, Bo and Sunny. ❤She is an honest woman and I admit freely that she is a role model of mine. Michelle Obama is known for her man Alright, before anyone accuses me of being political, this is not that. This is me appreciating a book about a woman who used to be First Lady, one whom I respect and admire for her intelligence, her wit, her appreciation of the little things. I love how she gets right in there and gives big hugs and chats about anything and everything. And I love how she loves her dogs, Bo and Sunny. ❤She is an honest woman and I admit freely that she is a role model of mine. Michelle Obama is known for her many roles, her life and her willingness to speak firmly but with honesty and heart behind her words. She was sort of thrust into the spotlight and dealt with the cruelty of the press regularly. (I do believe the press plays favorites and demonizes one side.) She did a great deal with Dr. Jill Biden for veterans and their families.Anywho. Do you miss Michelle? I do. (That’s the length of how political I’ll get.) She brought a down to earth vibe to the White House that I sorely miss. I always thought it felt like you could walk in and she’d probably greet you with a hug. I remember seeing that she would pop into White House tours with Bo and Sunny (or just Bo) and greet everyone. Still, this book encompasses that feeling; it features many of her more famous–and less famous–sayings. I think we all agree that ‘When they go low, we go high‘ is definitely her most famous and a personal favorite of mine.If you’re looking for some positivity and a reason to smile? This book is it. I couldn’t help but smile reading some of the quotes, because they almost seem like mantras for living a happier life. I highly recommend it.——-“When you are struggling and you start thinking about giving up, I want you to remember something…and that is the power of hope—the belief that something better is always possible if you’re willing to work for it and fight for it.”—Final remarks as First Lady, School Counselor of the Year Reach Higher Event,January 6, 2017

I have included a photo of one of my favorites. I am so honored to have been asked to review this book, and It is definitely something I will read through often. Between this book and Mrs. Obama's book BECOMING, I feel like I have learned so much about her, and I couldn't love her anymore!

    Go High is a lovely, little book bursting with inspiration ("Our diversities of faiths and colors and creeds - that is not a threat to who we are, it makes up who we are."
