Party at The Nest

I’ve been looking so forward to announcing this.  If for some reason you’ve yet to hear me talk about this~MY SISTER HAS GONE AND WRITTEN A BOOK, Y’ALL !!!!  My baby sister wrote a real, live, book and I’ve read it and recovering perfectionists like us are gonna love this book.  It has life changing capabilities.

So, to celebrate this huge, huge accomplishment of finishing and publishing this work of art, I want to throw a bash for Emily and her pretty bird out of the cage book and you.  If you read Nesting Place, if you read Chatting at the Sky then we would love for you to drop in on Saturday, September 17th {I live near Charlotte, NC} so we can celebrate together.  I’m pretty much inviting everyone I know, and everyone I don’t know.  Except for killers.

There will be more information next week with how to RSVP and I’ll map out the hoops you must jump through to weed out the potential killers since I’ll be opening up my home and clearly I have killer-phobia I need to deal with.

You can go ahead and preorder your book from Amazon now, the book releases {don’t you picture people holding copies of her book in outstretched hands telling them to fly away} on September 1st but chances are if you pre-order you’ll get your copy earlier.

Stay tuned for further instructions….

  19. kelly in georgia says

    What a simply wonderful idea!!! Wish middle Georgia was a whole lot closer….boo hoo. You guys better post a lot of pictures so that we can at least enjoy the virtual reality of the big shin-ding! Maybe you can figure out a mail order way of getting the book autographed even if we can’t be there….hmmmm….

  20. Wow! That is so super exciting that it’s finally being released!! You are so kind to welcome everyone to your home. I don’t blame you for not inviting the killers, they are creepy. But seriously, that is extremely kind and I would come if I lived closer. Have lots of fun! :)

  21. Just pre-ordered my copy! Congrats to Emily :)

    Will try to make the 4 hour trek to Charlotte to see you and Emily!

  22. This is so great, congratulations to your sister — I love reading her writing and I’ll have to grab a book. And congrats to you too, big sister :)

  23. The book sounds charming.. congrats to your sister… what a blessing to touch so many people’s lives…

  24. Oh yay! I can hardly wait to read Emily’s book! Went to Amazon to pre-order, read a bit about it and I was
    hooked. You are beautiful sisters and who can believe all that wonderful, creative talent is squished into two beautiful girls?????

  25. Congrats Emily!! I can’t wait to read this book!! And EEK!! I live in Columbia, SC so there’s a real chance for me to come get my book signed. What an exciting time for your family!

  26. See your house, meet you AND your Emily AND get my book signed (which I pre-ordered months ago)? Wow. That would be so awesome. Wow.

  27. Indiana’s pretty near Charlotte…right? Or maybe you could hold the party in your old stomping grounds of Columbus? (Is that even right???)


  28. Ha ha ha! I’m Flo.

    I hate this computer……………

  29. I pre-ordered my book months ago… waiting patiently for the day I can hold it in my hands! thank you for being a wonderful “Sea Star” to Emily. xo

  30. Oh sweet sisters – what a great time of celebration…penciling it in, and hopefully, I can get there.

  31. Yay for Emily and her new book! Love the title and the cover–so pretty. I’ll be celebrating with you in spirit! :-)

  32. How exciting! Can’t wait to get it!

  33. That sounds like soooooo much fun, wish I was closer, I would soooo come! And I’m NOT a stalker or a killer so maybe you would let me :)

  34. AWESOME!!! i can’t wait to read it~ and even if i didn’t want to i’d buy it just for it’s pretty cover!!

    love the big sister pride here. everyone needs a sister like that!

    and i’ll pray God keeps the killers away~ they usually bat their eyes really fast i’m told, so you should be able to spot them. ;)

  35. Oh, girls, I can hardly stand being halfway across the country when this happens. I will be wildly cheering you on and will eat a cookie in celebration of you two and your wonderfulness. So excited about Em”s fabulous book!!

  36. This makes sisters everywhere do a happy dance! :)


    That sound you hear ? That’s the thrum of wings of all the caged hearts — about to SOAR!

    Thank you, Emily and Nester… for such a time as this — both of you!

  37. wish I was close enough….celebrating from afar!

    so proud of her and so proud that you’re so proud. :)


  38. Nester and Emily:
    Blessings to you both! What a wonderful way to celebrate with other women of faith. My hometown is Charlotte, and my husband, son and I just recently moved back closer to our old stompin’ grounds…we now live in Greensboro, and I was elated to find out I could possibly have an afternoon of encouragement!! I pre-ordered my book, and I’ve emailed a dear friend of mine to see if she would be up for the journey. I imagine this will be a little like heaven: meeting others who share the same love for Jesus and soaking up the grace moments:)

  39. Congratulations!!! :)

  40. I am so bummed that I live in CA and can’t come to this. Know, though, that my mom and I will both be purchasing Emily’s new book and seriously can’t wait for it! Have fun, ladies! =D

  41. awesomeness. love her. love you. thanks for the heads up.
