Fitting, to say the least!

 

The biggest, most heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended this weekend, to all the sponsors and especially to @patriciasuggs, BHA’s indomitable director.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the culmination of my first series, one that has such a special place in my heart.

The number of you who have reached out to tell me what a special place it also has in yours means more to me than I can say.

I love hearing your stories and meeting you (shout out to my military wife readers who came yesterday to celebrate Sloane!) and am so grateful for all the support.

If you haven’t read the The Southern Side of Paradise, I would love for you to grab a copy.  It’s the Perfect Summer Read!

 

If you haven’t started the Peachtree Bluff Series yet, now is the perfect time! The first book in the series, Slightly South of Simple, has released in mass market paperback–and it’s #14 on the bestseller list! Pick it up at your favorite bookstore, local grocery store, drugstore or retail store

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Take a Peek at Our Holiday Decor!

bea

With eight days until Christmas, most of you have probably put the finishing touches on your decor. And, if not, hey, look on the bright side: Your tree will still be SUPER fresh on Christmas day! This year, we had a lot of help with our decor from some little holiday elves. You know when you were a kid and there was always THAT house that you begged your mom and dad to drive you by? That one that was all sparkly and lit up? Well, we do too. And we’ve always kind of wanted to have that house. (Maybe minus the blow up Santa.)

Art from Shutterfly!

We’ll be honest. We didn’t used to equate Shutterfly with home décor. Fabulous photo books? Of course. Great prints in a hurry? Definitely. But art to hang on our walls and serving trays for wedding gifts and personalized pillows for our porches? Nope. They weren’t on the forefront of our minds. But now all of that has changed!

Little Will’s bedroom in Beaufort has always been a bit lacking in the art department. Does that ever happen to you? You’re going one hundred miles an hour through a home décor project and you finally just lose your momentum? So when we had the chance to partner with Shutterfly to display some of their fabulous new products, we jumped at the chance!
