Virgin Gorda

Today is our last day in beautiful Virgin Gorda. (Sadly!) You know how when you’re getting ready for a trip and you have a million things to do and it’s so stressful trying to get everything in order to leave not to mention triple checking for plane tickets and passports and hotel reservations and you catch yourself thinking, Is it even worth it to go?

This is just a little reminder that yes. Yes it is worth it go. Because you come back relaxed and refreshed.

You get a little break from the cooking and cleaning and then you remember that…


Your new book is coming out a mere SIX WEEKS from tomorrow! Well, maybe that’s just me… But you get the idea. And we just wanted to let you know that everyone who preorders Lies and Other Acts of Love from their favorite book spot (Support your indies if you can! Our communities need those wonderful stores!) will be entered to win a $1,000 Shop Design Chic gift card! And will get some adorable printables that my precious friend Maghon from All She Wrote Notes is working on now. And we’ll have lots of other fun giveaways along the way. So, basically, that picture of your receipt sent to kristy @ is your golden ticket.


If it’s cold and rainy where you are and you think you might have to redecorate in Caribbean blues and tans, you can pull some swatches like this… Or just stick the book on your coffee table.

It’s no surprise that we love a gorgeous blue, whether it’s a fabulous hallway like this or a pretty book cover or…

A pretty quote. And we just hope that, whatever comes your way today, it’s filled with the good, beautiful kind of blues. Wishing you a wonderful week!
