Woohoo! My book is finally here!!! I have been waiting for this day for a long, long time and I and thrilled to bits that you all will finally get your hands on this sucker! As you can see from the above pic, I’ve bitten my nails way too low and completely neglected my hair for weeks all in anticipation of this book hitting the shelves! I’m kinda kidding, but actually this has been pretty all-consuming for the last year or so and finally, finally it’s out in the world. I feel like I just dropped my kid off at college. You’re on your own now. I’ve given you a strong foundation and now it’s up to you to make your own way in the world. Ok maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but all of this to say this is a major milestone for me and I’m super proud, excited, and, yes, a bit anxious too.
Today also kicks off a blog tour of the book. Blogger friends from all over the world have generously agreed to share their takes on #TheNewBohoBook with their audiences and I’m excited to see how they capture the book and what their takeaways are. Today, Nicole from Making it Lovely is starting things off, and you can check out the whole (amazing!) blogger lineup right here.
I’d love for you to share any projects, inspirations or ideas born from the book using the hashtag #TheNewBohoBook so I can see them and feature them here on the blog and on Instagram.
