Erin and Ben Napier of 'Home Town' Book Release - 'Make Something Good Today' BookFrom Ben and Erin Napier, the stars of the hit HGTV show Home Town , comes Make Something Good Today , a memoir that tells us all to seek out the good in life, celebrate the beauty of family and friends, and prosper within our communities because everything we need in life to be happy, is within our grasp. Long before their hugely popular TV show, an expanding family, or demolition day on their dream home, Erin began keeping a daily online journal to help her stay focused on the positive and count her blessings in life. She never expected that her depictions of small-town life in the tiny swath of Mississippi where she Ben call home would catch the eye of a television producer and set them off on the journey of a lifetime. Make Something Good Today offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of a couple that America has come to know and love for their easy humor, adoring relationship, and ability to utterly transform a place into something beautiful and personal. This is the poignant story of how Erin and Ben took a small, tight-knit town into their own hands literally and used ingenuity, community, and authenticity to rebuild a once-thriving American Main Street. Erin Napier is a designer and entrepreneur who started her career in corporate graphic design before founding her own international stationery company, Lucky Luxe, and is a founding co-owner of Laurel Mercantile Co.

These might have been frugal decisions, but they were always cooler and more clever than the store- bought ones, and I guess some of it rubbed off on me. In asking Erin to marry me, the proposal would have to be something special. It would have to be a big enough production to be worthy of our love story, like something out of movie or a book. I decided to take that idea for inspiration and run with it.
