Hi, friends! Are you having a good week? We sure hope so! I had a signing for Lies and Other Acts of Love with one of my favorite authors, Mary Alice Monroe, day before yesterday, and Mom got to come too! Everyone had so much fun at the event that we didn’t get home until midnight and, in the shock of being out so late on a school night, we, um, forgot what day it was. Hence the sharing of our Friday favorites on Thursday. But any day is a good day to share favorite links from around the web, right? We hope you’ll forgive us!

So, yes, after more than a month of almost continuous book touring, we may or may not be forgetting what day it is.

But do you know what we could never forget?

Why, how much we love boxwoods, of course!

The traditional look of one of our favorite shrubs complements pretty much any exterior decor.

And this shrub is so incredibly versatile! From a charming round shape to lead Fido to the yard,

To a stunning hedge that creates a beautiful, stylish boundary.

Or staid and simple, we love beautiful boxwoods any way at all! 

Now, today, we hope you have a fabulous Friday FOR REAL.
