In any season, in any country, we’re pretty convinced that beach life is the best life.

And, if we were on the fence, this mix of beach houses by Ashley Gilbreath has certainly convinced us.

And with the right amount of laid-back feel, these gorgeous beach houses are the kind of place we’d love to lounge all year long.

We adore the idea of gathering friends and family around a dinner table for a delicious meal,

And each of these homes provides the perfect space for just that–

Although we’re loving this kitchen island as a gathering spot too!

And the most darling guest bedroom houses company in style.

The best part of beach life? The great outdoors, of course! If you’re like us, you’re savoring every last drop of summer. We hope every moment is magical!

Thank You For Making Slightly South of Simple a National Bestseller

I cannot believe it, but Slightly South of Simple is a National Bestseller, hitting bestseller lists from Barnes & Noble to Bookscan, Southern Indie to Southern Pines and spending weeks on smaller bestseller lists in places like Salisbury, NC (my fab hometown and home of South Main Book Co.) and Bethlehem, PA. Sixteen weeks after its release, Slightly South is still holding its own on many of these lists. I’m pinching myself every day and can’t thank you enough for all your support! Happy weekend, sweet friends!
