I‘m pretty tickled to let you in on some BIG news today. On October 3, my newest baby will be released into the world (and hopefully find its way to your home!).
Friends, meet this special little book called Simple Gatherings.
Simple Gatherings is about how to host a memorable gathering for friends and family. But don’t worry. You can check perfection and intimidation at the door because this book isn’t about hosting a Pinterest-worthy party.
- Simple Gatherings is about creating an experience that will draw people together.
- From preparing your home and menu to setting the atmosphere and table, you’ll find simple tips for hosting any event.
- Learn how to help guests feel welcome and comfortable in your home.
- Discover ways to spark connection and conversation so everyone feels at ease (including yourself as a hostess!).
- Find featured gathering ideas, creative activities, and special touches to make gatherings memorable!
This sweet book on simple hospitality has been in the works for quite awhile, but it is one I’ve been especially eager to share with you.
YOU are a big reason Simple Gatherings exists.
You see, this book came to be because you’ve chosen to gather here with me, on this blog. Many of you have been gathering here for over ten years! Some of you have just recently found your way here, but your presence is welcomed and treasured just the same.
Every time we gather here, I feel uplifted by your kindness. I feel blessed by your support. As I’ve gotten to know you, you’ve become my friends.
I look forward to seeing your name and thoughtful comments when we gather here as much as I look forward to seeing friends around my table. That is what gatherings of friends is all about!
So friends, I want to thank you for gathering with me here day after day, week after week, year after year. I feel like I am among friends. I hope you feel like you belong here, too.
Simple Gatherings joins my four other books:
(and of course, The Inspired Room Coloring Book!)
You can order Simple Gatherings and find more about all of my books here.
This growing stack of books is because YOU gathered here! <3
Thank you for the support, friends. I love you more than pumpkin flavored everything (source: dishtowel).
