Format: Perfect Paperback
...reading it put a smile on my face; living it is putting a smile in my heart.

Ms. Egeling joins the wisest men and women throughout history in sharing with us a beloved family ritual that shows the reader by example how the most profound changes in life come from the simplest changes - in this case, choosing and expressing love on a daily basis by telling each person we care about one thing we love about them from that day, and following up with one thing we love about ourselves (not as easy as it sounds!)

I actually got my husband to read this book, and while he's the last person to submit himself to anything he deems "touchy-feely," he hopped right on the Love-Abouts bandwagon and surprised me by putting his arms around me and telling me each night what he loves about me.

Although we haven't yet progressed to one thing we love about ourselves, this practice has had an immediate and profound effect on our closeness and intimacy.
Everyone needs to feel loved and appreciated, and the method suggested by the author allows us to focus on the specific rather than the abstract. The things he chooses aren't things I *ever* would have thought he even noticed about me, and after 18 years of marriage, I hadn't believed either of us could surprise the other.

I now look forward to our "Love-Abouts" time each night, and am so much more aware of the little things I do each day and how I treat my husband, since I know now that what I do and say matters; that he notices. That he cares.

The examples the author shares from her own life are heartwarming and real, with no affectation whatsoever. The text is short and sweet - very sweet - and honestly life-changing. I would recommend this book to anyone.

What if you could touch somebody's life with a simple, yet profound statement shared
from the heart? Given the challenges we face with the massive changes in society today,
Mary Beth gives us a critical and proven strategy that truly makes a difference. You now have the
opportunity to deepen your relationships and enhance the quality of your life and the lives of
those around you.

Imagine what your life will be like when you adopt the same habit and say:

"What I love about you is ..."

What I love-about this book is that it has convinced to me to do this with my future kids. Yes, it has that kind of an impact on you. Mary Beth's experiences hold true and genuine value and can benefit just about anyone, young and old. Its a very quick read, but definitely not one to be forgotten. I recommend it to just about anyone who is looking to add something new to their relationships, or to mend conflicting ones. Makes a great Valentine's Day gift too!

This book is a breath of fresh air on how to improve our relationships with our families and friends. A vast portion of its appeal is that Mary Beth is a real person, not in the mental health profession or who has a PhD, who is trying to relate to other families and liked minded individuals and to better their lives through her books.
