The first weekend in May, The Nester (Myquillyn Smith) of The Nesting Place blog had her book signing in Cornelius (suburb north of Charlotte) Saturday morning. I brought my mom with me. It was held at a super cute gift shop, Bebe Gallini's. This was the 2nd book signing I've been to in Charlotte. The first was Young House Love last year but this book signing was the complete opposite of that one.
Everyone mingled, shopped and sipped on mimosas. It was very casual. We talked with Nester's dad and her sister. There was live music and snacks.
There was no official line for the book signing. I sat down with Nester in the set up that looked just like the cover of the book and we chatted awhile. She is so sweet and down to earth.
In addition to signing my copy of the book, The Nesting Place, she asked that I sign her copy of the book. How awesome is that?!
We were able to listen to Nester read a few pages from her book to everyone too. She mentioned being nervous about this but she did a wonderful job.
The tag line of the book is "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful". The perfectionist in me can definitely learn to think of that phrase more often. This isn't your typical decorating book but it is about embracing reality when decorating and creating spaces for real people to enjoy.
I can't wait to dig into the book more! It even won a spot on the Amazon best seller list. What an amazing accomplishment for The Nester! Check out her blog here.
