Under the Southern Sky

 

More About Under the Southern Sky

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

MORE ABOUT FEELS LIKE FALLING:
It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy. Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy. Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience. With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all. In her warmest, wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

We guess everyone has their favorite parts of their holiday traditions, the special moments that mean the most to them.

And, yes, we get why Christmas Day is the star of the show. Santa has come, the Christ Child is born.

But there’s just something about Christmas Eve…

The waiting. The sense of sweet anticipation. The joy in the journey.

At our house, Christmas Eve is when the fancy china comes out, when the crystal shines, when the candles are lit.

There are party poppers, too, complete with silly crowns and fun games. But there is something about that dark and formal moment of Christmas Eve, the knowing that everything you’ve been waiting for all year is right around the corner, that has always held a special place in our hearts.

House Tour: Charming Mountain Cabin

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin

 

When the temps start to drop, the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change, we immediately want to escape to a charming cabin

 

Greg Busch and Meridy King entry cabin

 

If you’re like us, you’re still limiting your travel for now. 

 

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin kitchen

 

But, lucky for us, Greg Busch and Meridy King and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles are letting us share this absolutely pitch-perfect cabin that is the ultimate place to while away a few fall days by the fire. 

 

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin kitchen

 

For the epitome of cabin style, rustic wood paneling is an absolute must–and these designers have absolutely nailed it, even in the kitchen.

Elegant yet outdoorsy finishes create a seamless transition from the indoors to the lovely porches,

And wood beams and a stone fireplace lend that mountain feel in droves.

Every vignette is thoughtfully designed to capture the feel of the beauty outside the door,

And practically made for a good night’s sleep and capturing a stunning view to wake up to.

We are huge fans of having guests, and these lovely guest rooms are the perfect place to house plenty of them–

And a sophisticated bunk room is great for welcoming friends of any age.

Even the bathroom details are teeming with mountain style.

Simple accessories create showstopping moments,

As each room flows seamlessly into the next.

We think this is the perfect place to getaway all fall long. Are you a fan of this stunning mountain retreat?

The only thing better than fall at the beach is fall in the mountains.

The crisp air… The changing leaves… Cool nights perfect for hot chocolate…

Of all the mountain destinations we adore, we think Cashiers, NC might be one of our very most favorite!

And this house might be one of our favorites we’ve seen there. (Which is saying a LOT!)

And plenty of pattern creates a homey vibe.
