d*s book tour: nashville event details!


One of my favorite parts of the book tour is getting to see so many cities I’ve always wanted to visit. Nashville has been high on my list ever since Lindsay shared her amazing city guide with us, so I’m thrilled that we get to stop in Tennessee and visit! We’ll be having a craft event and book party/signing at West Elm so I hope you’ll join us if you’re in the area- the details and RSVP are below. xo, grace

West Elm is hosting a huge sweepstakes with us! Enter here for a chance to win a $2,000 shopping spree and trip to NYC to shop with me and the D*S team!
