It’s Here.


This post has been a long time coming. Not just the nearly two year book process, but one that starts way before then. With a girl who loved reading and beautiful pictures and said “someday I want to write a book”.  With a young blogger who got such a thrill from seeing her statistics say she had 75 views in one day (and knowing her Mom hadn’t been all of them).  With a burgeoning writer who felt nervous about sharing personal stories and then found such joy in that sharing.  With a girl who found her voice, her point of view and her vision for her life.

It all feels completely surreal to me still.  It both took forever and went by in a flash, and to wake up this morning and be able to say I am officially a published author is an immense conflict of feelings- pride, fear, joy and worry.  Because first and foremost I hope you readers,  old and new, like it.  Because I wrote it for you and because of you- which is why I dedicated the book to you.  Your support, readership and conversation with me made this all possible.  Without you I wouldn’t be ME.  This is a long winded way of saying thank you. Thank you for helping me make this dream come true.

I can’t wait to hear what you think, and I can’t wait to meet so many of you on tour this week and next.  And don’t worry, if you haven’t gotten your pre-order books will be sold at all the signing parties (and I also will have bookplates to sign too you can stick in your copy).

Here we go….






  1. I look forward to reading your blog every morning and have done so for several years. I can’t wait to read your book, which shipped today. You are talented, funny, honest and so humble. Congratulations on your well deserved success!

  2. I just got your book in the mail this evening and it is so beautiful! I enjoyed every page. Congrats!

  3. Congratulations, Erin! My copy is downstairs….as soon as I put my daughter to bed, I’m planning to curl up with a cup of tea and read. So excited!

  4. I’m going to be spending Canadian Thanksgiving enjoying your new book. Wish you were doing a Toronto signing. Congratulations, Erin.

  5. Congratulations, Erin– What a fabulous achievement and a beautiful book!
    I spend the first minutes of every morning with a cup of coffee reading your blog-it’s my morning ritual. You have become part of many people’s mornings and beyond!

  6. Congratulations to my favorite blogger. I look forward to reading EOS everyday and have found countless inspirations from you!!! Can’t wait to see the book and catch you in Chicago!

  7. Dear Erin, I was so happy to see your beautiful book in my mailbox yesterday. I have read you for years, and it makes me so happy to be able to flip through your books pages! I love to have a lite presence of such a lovely being on my coffee table. Besides your amazing taste, I cherish your honesty, and your lack of ego. Hopefully I’ll make it to the dc event! I will!

  8. The book arrived yesterday and it is beautiful – – I love especially that you’ve included so much of the thinking behind the designs, not just the pretty photos of finished products. And that you’ve included your personal stories and challenges; those are inspiring and reassuring in more ways than you might imagine. Thank you and congratulations!

  9. Erin,
    I got my book in the mail yesterday. From your writing style to the imagery and the subject of design: L-O-V-E!!! Congratulations.

  10. Just bought the last copy @barnes and noble today and it’s so fabulous!!! You did such a wonderful job!
