My New Digs

I am so excited and happy to share this news with you guys! As some of you may know, our home was recently photographed for the lovely St. Louis At Home magazine. It was surreal to have our home styled for a photo-shoot and even more surreal to see our dining room on the front cover of this month's issue! Say what?!?

When I got the email telling us about the cover I about peed my pants. 'Tis true friends. I hope you understand...haha!

As soon as I get my hands on that magazine I will post a pic for you guys to see and I really hope my St. Louis friends check it out. I cannot wait to see those magazines on sale in-store! I may act a little cooky when I finally see it--I still cannot get over how much fun this whole experience has been! I feel like a kid on Christmas!

But, I digress, back to the main point. I was recently asked to be a contributor to the St. Louis At Home magazine's Secretary of the Interior blog!


My assignment is to blog twice a month about St. Louis craigslist finds and other decor that catches my eye! I am so honored and humbled to be asked to do this...this is a total dream of mine that almost doesn't feel real. And...the icinig on the cake? I'll be getting paid! It's so crazy to believe but I feel like I am making my dreams come true. And while that may be a little cheesy, I honestly could feel no different way about it.

Thanks for letting me share the good news with you all and I hope you hop on over to check out my first post.

Love you guys!

Congrats on your new assignment. I love reading your blog and check it everyday. I hope to use some of your design techniques in my own house. Our kitchens are almost identical - except mine still needs to be updated (haha). I just cant seem to pull the trigger on painting my cabinets.
