It’s finally here!!!
Remember waaaay back when….when the talented Lettered Cottage couple came down to shoot our house for Cottages and Bungalows magazine??
Their shots (and our house!!) is finally published, and on newsstands. I’m blown away by how much they included…it is a 12 page spread! MANY, many thanks to the folks at Cottages and Bungalows!
And I have to say a word about my sweet friend, Layla, who was first to call and offer this opportunity.
You know how we all “know” each other? We learn about each other’s lives from our blogs, from our projects, our tweets, and facebook posts. We watch others create and inspire, and we fall in love with them just a little.
I met Layla a few years back when she was working at a photography studio, and loved her then. That was way before the Lettered Cottage ever came into existence. We kept in touch for a while, but life moved on for both of us.
Fast forward 3 1/2 years, me at my computer. I was a brand new blogger and stumbled on to The Lettered Cottage. I was blown away! Oh my word. Look how cute she is…I know her…she’s adorable. They’re adorable.
We reconnected, and the first time we chatted on the phone, she told me the news about C & B. I remember being so nervous to talk with her about it all…and I honestly don’t get nervous very often. Her mild manner and gentle encouragements put me at ease quickly.
And now, for the last 10 months, I’ve had the priveledge to become fast friends with her and her handy hubby. To say thank you to them for the opportunities they’ve selflessly sent my seems almost trivial…but I have to say it. THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, Layla and Kevin.
More importantly, I feel completely led to say a blessing of some sorts over them today. I’m sure you’ve heard…they’ll be starting a brand new HGTV adventure soon, and no two people deserve it more.
So, thank you, my dear friends, and I pray that as you move forward, and as life gets more hectic, more fabulous, (and maybe a little stressful), that you will turn inward to Him who is able to give you the strength, grace, and energy you’ll undoubtedly need. I pray you also turn to one another, and keep on doin’ what you do best…living life as an adventure…together. I pray for creativity, productivity, and sheer design brilliance, and blessing for you guys.
I can’t wait to watch your show, your design, your lives….you’re sort of some of my favorite folks on the whole wide world.
Thanks again….much love to you both.
Thank you to you guys, my other favorites. Thanks so much for your support, encouragement, emails, and comments. I’m forever indebted.
Hope you have a crazy happy Saturday!
