Some Big News + A Holiday Dream Come True

Hi friends! It’s me again. I just wanted to pop in real quick + share some super exciting news. I have been holding onto this information and thought it was time I shared it with all of you!!!! Are you ready? BHG Christmas Ideas Magazine is coming to shoot my holiday house this season!!!! I am still in shock but so thrilled. The December right before we closed on our house 4 years ago I got an email from Jennifer from Dear Lillie wanting me to make her ornaments for her Christmas Tree. She told me that BHG Christmas Ideas Magazine was coming to shoot her house. I was happy to make them for her, all the time imagining what it must have felt like to have that opportunity. Fast forward a year later, there were my ornaments on her tree in the magazine. You would have thought I won the lottery. Nothing I had ever made was in a magazine before. Fast forward 3 more years + here I am. My mom used to always say if you work hard enough your dreams can + will come true. I have loved every minute of this blogging journey + want to thank you all from the bottom of  my heart for sharing it with me. I know you all have busy lives + the fact that you take time out of your day to be with me, I am humbled + so grateful!!! The comments that you take the time to write I love reading and am so appreciative for.

Tomorrow I will share my holiday tour as a part of Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk, since Better Homes + Gardens is coming I will be sharing some different rooms  + vignettes that will not be featured in the magazine. I tried to focus on areas my boys love to hang out in the hopes of making it really special for them. Here are some images from last years holiday tour + I hope you will pop back tomorrow when I share lots of fun holiday decorating ideas + DIY’s.
