Introducing Home for Summer

Home for Summer ebook by Amy Dowling and Emily Kennedy

Today is an exciting day! Our newest edition in our Home for eBook series, Home for Summerlaunches today!

Whether summer to you means kicking back and relaxing with family, or packing up for new adventures (or both!), Home for Summer captures everything fresh, bright and fun about this wonderful season.

My good friend Amy approached me with this idea over a year ago –  to create a series of ebooks that celebrate everything we love about each season and pack it with plenty of decor ideas, do-able crafts and DIY projects, delicious recipes, and ask some of our most talented blog friends to help us do it.

Similar to our Home for Fall edition, we’ve packed Home for Summer with plenty of beautiful summer decor inspiration, do-able crafts ideas and delicious recipes to help you turn your home into a relaxing retreat this season. And our talented team has created amazing home decor, easy crafts and yummy recipes that you’ll want to try right now! But first, let me introduce you to our team:
