i’m in the hamptons. there’s no better place to get you in the mood for july 4th. there’re american flags and massive hydrangea everywhere. i’m having fun being with friends, signing books, going to the beach, doing some shopping and looking at all the big white houses.

if you are not yet in the mood for the 4th, here are some of my favorite pinterest pins from this week that might help. they are subtle, but of course, there’s a hint of red, white and blue. 

if you are in the hamptons today. i’ll be at the serena and lily in wainscott from 4-6 signing my beautiful book. hope to see you!

happy sunday!
