I had the privilege of writing several essays for Garden & Gun's The Southerner's Handbook, a New York Times best-seller. My essays include: Putting Pen to Paper— an ode to the handwritten letter; an interview with designer Sid Mashburn titled Rock a Pair of White BucksShades of the South—a tour of the South's most iconic paint colors; and A Southern Wreath, a DIY tutorial on making a cotton wreath for any occasion.
