So when the sweet Beth Livesay from Romantic Homes Magazine contacted me in late December informing me that they’d like to feature At The Picket Fence, (really?! our lil ol’ blog!? in their GORGEOUS magazine) along with some photos of my kitchen remodel, it was all we could do not to share with all of you…cause ya know YOU ALL are the first one’s we love to share with!
Wow! So can I say, first we (Vanessa and I) are probably the last two people on earth who should be keeping “secrets.”
I sent the photos off with a first of January deadline…and then we waited. And I worried just a little that maybe I had imagined it all. I confess to even checking the email correspondence a few times to make sure I hadn’t dreamed it all up.
Then we got the email. The one from Diana of Nana Diana Takes A Break, who graciously highlights bloggers featured in Romantic Homes magazine each month. “Hey gals, I’m gonna be featuring you for being in Romantic Homes!” and the the emails and Facebook Wall posts started popping up from y’all saying you had seen us.
So, We hadn’t imagined it!!
And on Saturday, I was able to finally officially get my hands on a copy of the LOVELY April edition of Romantic Homes!!
Seriously!! To even be included in the pages with such amazing homes, décor and just plain beautiful ROMANCE, is just too much…and then to find our sweet friend Sherry from No Minimalist Here included in there as well, that was the icing on the cake!
And you know what…as fun as it was to see my kitchen in print, in such a fantastic magazine like Romantic Homes, even better what Beth shared ABOUT our blog!
“This blog has a great sense of community….”
See that part about “community” in there? Well, folks that means more to us than anything else! Because we knew that Beth got what we’re trying to do. Create “community” with an amazing group of fellow bloggers, DIYers, decorators, cooks, moms, both women and men walking on a journey together to create beauty in their everyday lives!
So, thank you Romantic Homes for sharing “our home” here At The Picket Fence with your readers! A big thank you to Jacqueline deMontravel and Beth Livesay for helping to create and produce such a lovely publication and including us in it.
And thank YOU to our friends of At The Picket Fence for meeting us here everyday! We appreciate you so much!
