Have you heard the news? Ana White, homemaker extraordinaire, has a new show on HGTV! It premiered last week with two pilot episodes. I finally got a chance to head over to my mom’s house to watch the recorded shows (we cut the cable cord 18 months ago, so I’ve been sadly lacking in HGTV). I can tell you without a doubt, it was AMAZING! I loved it. It’s probably my favorite new show on tv. I had the great pleasure of meeting Ana on her book tour a couple of years ago, and can say that she truly is that genuine and enjoyable in person. It’s been so much fun to work with her on plans for the past few years, as well as build the ones she’s worked on with others!
But the best part? I love how involved her family is with the show. As a mom of a toddler and baby myself, it’s incredibly refrishing, if not jaw-droppingly inspiring, to see her wear her son in a baby carrier and tote him around on the job site. It’s such a strong message for women, to not only see a woman working with power tools and building amazing furniture and rooms, but to also see a mom doing all these things with young children in tow. I just loved that! It goes to show that the work/life balance can truly exist for the modern woman. Even one wielding a hammer!
So if you’re looking for a great new show to watch, tune in to Saving Alaska. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they network picks up a full season and more episodes will be aired soon!
