So yesterday this happened.
Standing in Kirkland’s in front of dozens of people talking about decorating and bookcases and sharing my story and laughing and wearing leopard print shoes and my favorite dress and taking pictures with people.
IN FRONT OF AN DISPLAY WITH MY PICTURE ON IT.
Never. Never ever ever ever in the history of ever did I imagine such a thing could ever happen.
When I was writing about treeless skirts and pancake love stories and new old houses and all of the times I slid down a hill in front of a crowd of people, I never visualized.
I never dreamed.
I never imagined.
My leopard shoes would ever walk so far.
So today is book launch day.
I wrote this book for anyone who gets a little overwhelmed standing in front of the paint chip display at the paint store. I wrote it for all the curtain choices and the floor choices and what to put on my bookcase choices and how high do I hang my chandelier choices and all the other decisions and choices and dilemmas in between.
I hope that it inspires you.
I hope that it walks along aside you in all the decorating valleys and celebrates with you when you finish and stand on top of the decorating mountain.
In front of a space and a home that you love.
And in exciting news.
Because having your face on a display in Kirkland’s just wasn’t enough.
The book is number one in its category on Amazon.
I’m so lucky to get to partner with Kirkland’s.
The company is amazing.
The people who work for it are amazing.
And the new lines that they just brought into the store? I seriously can’t even. There are deconstructed chairs and poufs and an entire garden line of florals and brilliantly colored artwork and distressed pitchers and on and on and on.
I cannot thank you enough.
Thank you for cheering and lifting me up and making my leopard print shoes dance for joy.
All of this.
This display. This planner. This day. This journey.
This smile on my face and this joy in my heart.
I owe it all to you.
If you’d like your very own copy, you can order it here.
If you’d like to me and my face and my book, I’ll be at the Houston Kirkland’s on Thursday. More details here.
If you’ve already bought the planner and you have a moment to leave a review on Amazon here, I’ll click my leopard print shoes together with joy.
PS Don’t think I wasn’t shopping either.
I couldn’t help it.
There were people to shop with and coupons.
Look at these adorable white vases I bought for the kitchen counter.
I just wanted a little something to remind me of all that joy. 🙂
PPS Here’s a Facebook video I took yesterday at the store. Please ignore all the noise around the first minute where I knocked the display over. #soclose
