House Tour: Beautiful in Birmingham

We can all use a good second chance every now and then. From furniture to houses, accessories to, yes, people, reinvention is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves.

And, sometimes, when life changes, in order to move forward, we could all use a second act.

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.

 

AND , in case you haven’t read Feels Like Falling, now is your chance!  It’s on sale for $1.99 on Kindle for a limited time.  Check it out HERE!

30A in Your Living Room

 

Happy, happy Monday, dear friends! We hope that you and the fathers in your life had a wonderful Father’s Day. We are so, so excited to share a bit of Author Eleanor Lynn Nesmith and Photographer Jean Allsopp’s breathtaking collaboration, 30A Living

 

 

A few years ago, I had a book signing at Sundog Books in Seaside, Florida for my fourth novel. I never imagined that I would not only spend the afternoon signing books, but also chatting with Lynn–and amazing interior designer Paige Schnell of Tracery Interiors–and getting Lynn to sign a copy of her STUNNING book for me!

 

 

The book was waiting for me like a wonderful gift when I got home from book tour, and, as soon as I opened it, I knew I had to go back there. 

 

 

We had planned a family trip to nearby Alys Beach in April, and, well, I don’t have to tell you how that story ends…

 

 

On the bright side, I have my copy of 30A Living prominently displayed in the living room and, whenever I need a little Florida fix, I can flip through its inspiring pages. 

 

 

If you love 30A as much as we do, check back tomorrow for more gorgeous images from one of our favorite coffee table books. And for the full effect, pick up your copy for far less than a plane ticket–no face mask required!
