I’m a big fan of many of Better Homes & Gardens special interest publications. In fact the inspiration to distress our kitchen cabinets actually came from a kitchen makeover I fell in love with in their Kitchens & Bath Ideas magazine.
But of all their special interest publications my absolute favorite, hands down, is Refresh magazine!
So last year when I received an email that they were interested in featuring my home in their magazine, I honestly looked around the room and thought, “Am I being punked?” I distinctly remember telling my husband that I doubted it would actually happen. Even last fall when the crew came to shoot our house and when the writer called to interview me I still didn’t have high hopes. I thought for sure the whole thing would end up falling through, and I was honestly okay with that. I was just grateful that I somehow landed on their radar, and I was grateful that I got to experience the behind the scenes action of a magazine photo shoot.
So yesterday when I went to Target because I’d heard from a few blog friends that the magazine was on stands and it did in fact have pictures of my home in it, I literally cried right there in the middle of the magazine aisle like a big giant crazy lady. They weren’t just tears of joy………and excitement………..and of utter disbelief; I cried because I was so completely overwhelmed by God’s grace and by His amazing plans.
I’m just a wife and mom who likes to decorate. I have no idea how this happened, but oh my goodness am I beyond honored and so very thankful to all of you for coming along on this blogging journey with me!
