The Sweetest Occasion in Better Homes & Gardens

May 23

I got my first magazine subscriptions when I was 10. My parents were probably pretty amused when I asked for shelter magazine subscriptions for my birthday, but they’re pretty awesome and they got right on board with my unusual childhood ways. Today, twenty years later, I can’t even believe that I’m about to tell you that my name is printed in the current issue of Better Homes and Gardens. It’s mind boggling, honestly. I’d love to have you pick up the issue where I’m quoted alongside some pretty amazing bloggers and event planners, all of whom are party animals of the highest level, sharing our tips for summer entertaining. While you do that, I’ll be wallpapering our house with all the extra copies I bought. I’m that girl.

Better Homes and Gardens - June 2013

I have to take a quick moment to say that none of this would be possible without you, the friends and readers who are here every day sharing in what I do and making me feel like a million bucks. This is the stuff little girl dreams are made of and you’re the reason I am living that dream.
