ROMANTIC HOMES

Oh. My. Gosh.


Last week
My friend Debra came by and left me a comment
congratulating me on
FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE
being featured on 'Site Seeing' in the gorgeous

Uhmm...
I just about fell off my chair.
I had to read her comment again to be sure that was what she said.
I knew there was a possibility of being in the magazine-
they had contacted me months earlier but I didn't hear anything else after that.
A few days later several more friends came by to say they
or my bathroom in the magazine...
I didn't have my copy yet ... it was making me crazy!
lol!


It has long been a dream to be published in a magazine...
so exciting to open the pages and see my rooms & my blog
among all the incredibly talented people I admire
in Romantic Homes Magazine.


I feel so honored.

&
I might be just a wee bit excited too...

(Did I say Oh. My. Gosh! yet?)

:)

Thank you so much to
Beth Livesay & Jacqueline deMontravel for sharing my blog
& for this exciting moment
and a big thank you to all of my friends who come by and support
French Country Cottage!

I appreciate each of you much!
