A day in the life. My multi-tasking has reached epic proportions. Put finishing touches (I hope) on secret project. Signing last batch of tip-in sheets for THE NEWCOMER. studying paint chips for various uses at Coquina Cottage. Also working on my script for Wednesday night’s @friendsandfiction episode with @launger. And oh yes, hoping to get back to shell mirror project. #authorsofinstagram #awriterslife #multitaskingmama #mkamakes #coquinacottagetybee #vacationontybee

Even on a bright sunny day at the beach, @launger has me biting my nails and 👀 over my shoulder. If you like your thrillers dark and twisty, check out her newest, Confessions on the 7:45. And then join us on @friendsandfiction next Wednesday night when we’re hosting Lisa. #confessionsonthe745 #domesticthriller #twistedsister #bookedtothrill #ebbtidetybeeisland

You might be a hardcover junker if you venture out to the FedEx store and while your hubs is inside you score a sweet rattan table for $20 at the consignment shop next door. #wickerwonderland #twentydollarbill #coquinacottagetybee #vacationontybee #cheapthrills

The finished #bakedfeta  was ridonkulously good. Mr. MKA topped his with roast salmon. I tossed in some Kalamata olives because that’s how I ride. #tiktokbakedfetapasta #fridaynightdinner #lentenfriday #nomeatnoproblem #catholiclife

If it’s Wednesday, that means it’s @friendsandfiction night. Atlanta has so far dodged the icy temps blanketing the rest of the country—it’s a balmy 22 degrees here today! Think I’ll warm up with a cup of tea and some @mamageraldines mini-cinnies. You can order your own stash online and get a 20 percent discount with the FABFIVE code! #mkasaid #cheesestrawheaven #snackonyall #snacktacular

Our contractors sent us this progress report yesterday from Coquina Cottage. There’s a hole in the porch ceiling—which is great news! They have framed in the opening for the new interior stairway. Coquina was a duplex for many years, with one unit downstairs and one unit up, so there were two exterior sets of stairs, one on either side of the house. We had the stairs on the left side removed to open up the driveway, and this formerly screened set of side porches have been enclosed. ##beachhousereno #upstairsdownstairs #thisoldcottage #coquinacottagetybee #beachhousestyle #vacationontybee

This is what happens when the @ballarddesigns outlet has a 50 % off sale. Not pictured, the 10-by-14 seagrass rug which would not fit in my SUV. In my defense, we’re furnishing a 5-bedroom 2-story beach house. On a shoestring. #coquinacottage #beachhousereno #vacationontybee #sorrynotsorry #ballardballer

When you come home from a junk jaunt to @scottantiquemarkets with @pattichenry and find your ACTUAL copy of her upcoming novel Surviving Savannah, well that’s some sweet synchronicity. I’ve been blessed to be along on the epic journey with PCH as this book came to fruition, and all I can say is, this one is golden! #bookmail #survivingsavannah #historicfiction #southerntitanic
