December 13:

Good holiday season morning, readers! What kind of shopper are you? Are you a tunnel-visioned, perfect-present-for-the-perfect-person kind of shopper? Or are you more of a one-for-them, one-for-me kind. Since I fall distinctly in the category of the latter, I decided that it would be so fun to get a little something for yourself and receive a little something for a friend!

Giveaway Details:

This week, we’re doing a get one, give one, giveaway. All you have to do to enter and get your free book is:

  • Preorder my forthcoming FEELS LIKE FALLING on the day of the giveaway.
  • Email me your receipt and your address at [email protected]
  • If we are getting close to running out of a certain book I’ll let you know via Facebook.

 

Day 4, December 13: Preorder Feels Like Falling on DECEMBER 13 and receive a signed advance copy of either Dear Carolina or Lies and Other Acts of Love while supplies last. (They have plain orange covers but they read the same!) Please note I am very low on Dear Carolina, so if you want that one, act fast!

December 14:

Day 5, December 14: EVERYONE who has preordered Feels Like Falling at any time (I have a spreadsheet!) will be entered to win a Tello & Rose bag full of books including a signed copy of Meet Me in Monaco by Heather Webb and Hazel Gaynor, a signed advance copy of Tell Me a Story by Cassandra King Conroy, a signed copy of Did You Ever Have a Family? and many, many more!

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).

Eight Tips for Creating a Cozy Guest Bedroom

APD Architects

 

Now that spring is officially here, we are looking forward to warmer weather, plenty of travel–and, of course, lots of guests!

cozy guest bedroom
One Kings Lane

 

Living at the beach, it seems that when the weather changes, suddenly everyone wants to come visit. And we can’t think of anything better! Check out a few of our favorite tips for creating a lovely room that your guests will never want to leave!

cozy guest bedroom
Cullman & Kravis

 

  1. Invest in cozy bedding. Nothing says “welcome” to your guests like cozy, comfy bedding.

Tracery Interiors

 

2. If there’s room, add a chair–or two! It’s so nice for guests to have a spot for relaxing right in the privacy or comfort of their own room.

3. Think about their comfort. When it comes to sleep, few things are as important as the mattress! We always suggest sleeping in your own guest room every now and then to see how it would be to be a guest in your home. If the mattress isn’t up to par, it might be time to upgrade. Check this fabulous selection–including the Bedding Mart family bed!

4. Keep it clutter free. A few well-placed accessories are more than enough when it comes to guest rooms. We don’t want to overwhelm our guests with personal mementos and too many accessories.

One Kings Lane

 

5. That said, it’s always nice to provide guests with all the essentials they’ll need! A stack of fresh towels, shower essentials and a water pitcher are all nice touches.

6. Include a few favorite reading materials–books, magazines, today’s newspaper–in case guests have a bit of downtime. Bonus points for this fabulous reading nook!

7. If there’s room, there’s nothing we love more than a desk in a guest room. We’re all so connected these days that it’s hard to totally unplug and a desk gives guests a place to sneak in a few minutes of work without any interruptions.

8. Footboards are great, but not every bed has one. When faced with a bed with no footboard, we love the look of a bench at the end of the bed. A chaise or a pair of chairs is also a great complement and gives guests a spot to sit and read, watch TV or simply put on their shoes!

We don’t know about you, but these gorgeous guest rooms have us ready to do a little entertaining of our own! What’s your favorite way to make your guests feel at home?
