somebody pinch me!!

Serious...I'm freaking out, guys!





If you've thought I've been a little weird lately, saying things like...
"I'll be waiting on the sidewalk for my mail lady."
or
"I have big news to share."



Well, today's the day....


because God is hilarious and thought He'd bless my socks off.....


Seriously, pinch me....



I got an email from Country Living in February, asking if I would participate in an article for May's issue. 
Um....YES!  Are you kidding!?!

I love getting magazines....I save them for quiet tea times when I can soak in every bit of goodness they possess.  And no joke, Country Living is my favorite.
I'm not just brown-nosing...I love it.
And if you subscribe to it, you know what I mean.
So to be a part of it, is just a dream come true.
Like I said, God has totally outdone Himself.  This is something I would have never fathomed in my wildest dreams!

If you don't subscribe to it...go pick up the May issue, just to appease me :)

I'm over the moon right now...my cup is runnin' over!



I'm a little pumped, to say the very least :)

That is the coolest darn thing ever! YOU are the greatest!!! I love your blog and found it a few months ago. I was sad that I didn't find it sooner. I drove through South Dakota twice this summer, and loved it. I took an adventure with my three boys for a month (thanks to my wonderful husband who let us go for that long!). If I would have "known" you then, I would have tried to meet up. I love homeschooling too, and all things vintage! Keep up the great work!

Cottage Mommy said...

I just found your blog through ten on ten and think I left a comment there but had too on this as well! I totally remember seeing this (big lover of CL as well!) and remember thinking that it was so cool to see an etsy shop there...I have an etsy shop too (and it seems nowadays..who doesn't!) but is always feels so great to see etsy shops highlighted out there because I always think of them as people like me...trying to make a little money doing what they love. So long note just to say I think that is super beyond cool and I would have totally flipped out too if CL had contacted me!

Sarah said...

NO WAY!! I love Country Living! That's so awesome!

Between You and Me said...

Holy COW. I'm so excited for you!!!!!
And, I love those pillows!!!
