How many times have you returned from a life-changing trip only to leave novelty keychains and unsent postcards in your suitcase until the next adventure?

Suddenly your carry-on is so full that you’ve got to use your expansion zipper to cram an extra seventeen pairs of underwear for your 3-day cruise. In the same way that we let souvenirs from our last trip take up valuable space in our bag, we rehash our past and let it keep us from our most basic human need—to give love and be loved.

Join Andi as she bravely faces her past and warmly invites us to step out of our narratives and into our most authentic selves.

Love, Unpacked is a raw, inspirational memoir of one woman's journey through loss, pain, and the struggle for self-acceptance. With unflinching honesty, wry humor, and a sprinkle of swear words, Andi Franklin unpacks her stories, confronts her past, and finds her way to unconditional love.

About the Author

Andi Franklin helps women reevaluate their experiences to find love, confidence, and joy within themselves. She is a mother, wife, and psych major who readily admits that she's always learning more about unpacking her shit. Andi lives in a fixer-upper Spanish farmhouse in Southern California with her husband, two kids, and giant fur babies that shed way too much where she carves out time to write cozied up on the couch with a fresh cup of coffee.
