I’m a little beside myself, Lovelies. The book launches in less than 3 weeks! To celebrate, I’m offering a beautiful gift when you pre-order LA LA LOVELY.
This gorgeous print from the book along with the corresponding sample chapter, The Soul of a Home, is being offered as a free gift for a limited time (Simply order before April 10th from the online retailer of your choice— quick links here).
GEZELLIG is a Dutch word that can’t quite be translated into English. The closest word we have is cozy and I’m certain any Dutch person would tell you that that is an incomplete translation. Gezellig can be described as a mood or feeling. A nice atmosphere or a pleasant experience. Some even say it is the heart of Dutch culture. It’s a quaint cafe with friends. It’s a home that is cozy, warm, inviting. It’s togetherness and belonging.
A place can be Gezellig and so can a person.
I translate the word to mean: The soul of a home.
And, what I’m gathering, these days, is that:
The Soul of a home isn’t determined by how it is decorated; It is determined by who and what resides in it.
What do you want the soul of your home to be (I talk about what I want for my home, in the book)?
One thing I’m certain of is that I want a home where the GEZELLIG is going strong. So I have this beautiful print framed and hanging up to remind me of the feeling and culture I want to create in my home.
To download your copy of the print and sample chapter simply purchase the book through the online retailer of your choice and then e-mail a screenshot or photo of your proof of purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org.
