Slow Love

Sometimes the sucker punch, the one you don’t see coming that knocks you down and leaves you wounded, that punch is the punch that, in hindsight, was the best thing imaginable. It happened to me, three years ago, when a very long, painful relationship ended abruptly. It was horrible, gut-wrenching, and every other superlative for pain you can imagine. And, ultimately, it freed me. It released me completely to find the love I really wanted.


That’s exactly what happened to Dominique Browning. In her book Slow Love: How I Lost My Job, Put On My Pajamas & Found Happiness, Browning details how losing her job as editor of Home and Garden magazine dealt her a devastating blow that ultimately proved to be exactly what her life needed.
