It is has been such a whirlwind of emotions{in a good way of course}, this has been a dream of mine for such a long time!!!

Growing up I was the “creative” girl, head in the clouds thinking of what I could make next.

And there was my mother,

letting me know it was ok if my gifts weren’t like everyone else’s & encouraging me every step of the way.

Me being here has EVERYTHING to do with her.

{She was the queen of resourcefulness}

She would be SO over the moon by this incredible news:)!!!

  39. Congratulations!!!! I’m so happy for you. I love watching people’s dreams come true. And I love BH&G. My mother subscribed to 2 magazines when I was growing up… Ladies Home Journal and Better Homes & Gardens. I used to wonder whose homes were in the magazine and how did they get there? Now that I’m a blogger, I’ve finally got the answer to those questions. :)

    You have a beautiful home and a fabulous sense of style…perfect for gracing the pages of Better Homes and Gardens!!

  40. Dear Jen, Congratulations. I am so happy for you. This is a honor that is well deserved.
    I can’t wait to see your home in BHG. Enjoy the moment. It is always nice when the truly
    good people in life are rewarded for their hardwork and effort. All the best.

  41. Congratulations, my friend! It’s well deserved!! I cannot wait to see your home in print!

  42. Congrats!!! Your home is beautiful and can’t wait to see it featured in my favorite magazine.

  43. You deserve every good blessing – your talent and love of sharing your home is appreciate by many and now even more people will get to enjoy your home – through the Better Homes & Gardens. I will definitely be searching for that edition. You are a rock star!!!

  44. Such amazing news! Congratulations. You are such an inspiration and encouragement to newbie bloggers like myself.

  45. Congratulations!! Very exciting and very well deserved! Love your blog!

  48. Congrats Jen! That is awesome news!

  49. Congratulations! Your blog is one of my favorites, but what I would love to see is a BHG feature on your home as YOU have done it. Not how a BHG designer wants to show it! They approached you because they love your home, now BHG please leave it alone!!:)
