Thanks "Better Homes Ladies"

If you've been reading for a while, you might remember that we had our house photographed in February for this year's Better Homes & Gardens Magazine December/ Holiday 2010 issue.  It will be coming out sometime this month and I can't wait!! 

{an old issue}

I've refused to get silly-pumped for it yet and have really tried not to think too much about it because I'd drive myself crazy with anticipation, but last week as I walked past a magazine newstand , I got tingly-butterflies knowing that in a couple of weeks our house will be featured in those newstands.  I truly have that kid-on-Christmas-Eve feeling. 

The week of the photoshoot (and I really mean week; Better Homes Editor & Writer Joanna Linberg & stylist Jessica Thomas arrived on a Monday and left on that Friday) was so much fun.  Despite having a newborn & running on fumes, I was on Cloud 9.  The photographer, Helen Norman, and her assistant, FJ Hughes, did such a beautiful job and I drool over their work.  (Love it so much that they're coming back this week to take photos of our house for my portfolio, which right now is full of my blurry unprofessional photography.)

And, although I know you've seen it before, our kitchen's being featured on the Better Homes & Gardens website right now -along with paint colors & details- so if you'd like to see it you can click here.  Thanks so much to Joanna and the "Better Homes Ladies" (which is what Christian called them when they visited...  my apologies to any males there ;)  --- you truly made my year. 

xoxo, Lauren

ps- I'll be posting as soon as the issue come out!!
