The Southern Side of Paradise summer beach read

Well, friends, the The Southern Side of Paradise tour is over (for a few weeks, anyway!) and it was one for the books—pun intended! I am so grateful to everyone who attended events, hosted them and, of course, has read The Southern Side of Paradise! 🏝 You make my job so much fun and I am so grateful for you!
We have plenty more events throughout the summer and year—and are planning my 2020 tour! If you want me to come to your city next year, let me know!

 

WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL WEEKEND AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY DESIGN CHIC TODAY! WE ALWAYS LOVE IT WHEN YOU DO!
