Wow, I was so excited to hear that I won a copy of Wendy's new book, Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs! I have been reading her blog for a while and got to know her a bit better two years ago when I started making semi-drastic changes that saved energy and money. Wendy and her family are quite knowledgeable about what the good Earth can (and cannot!) provide for us, and how to make use of natural resources for daily living. And she's got a great sense of humor that makes her writing even more enjoyable :)
What a great way to start 2012!
