Romantic Homes Magazine

So,the new August issue of Romantic Homes magazine is out. It is the one that has my house in it (that's not it on the cover). I remember when I was asked to have my house be in the magazine. I kept telling Jacqueline it isn't an old house, it's just a track house in a regular neighborhood. I was so nervous the day of the photo shoot, but both Jacqueline and the photographer Jaimee were so cool and easy going. I relaxed right away. I get uncomfortable with a lot of attention, so this whole magazine thing isn't exactly easy for me. The real reason I did it was so everyone would know about Country Roads. After all, so many of the things in my house came from Country Roads. It's weird to see your home in a magazine in newstands all over the place. I bought four issues today at the grocery store. I wanted to put an issue in each keepsake suitcases I have for Riley and Morgan. The checker asked me "why" I was buying so many copies of the same magazine. I shyly said, "my house is in it". Then she wanted to see "where" the article was, which held up the line behind me while I showed her. But she did ask about the store, my true motivation. When I first saw the magazine, I looked at the pictures in amazement. Jaimee is an awesome photographer, the photos came out so nice. This journey in life is always interesting to me and never boring, and now I have a magazine showing everyone where I sleep at night. . . kind of strange, you know?

You are an evil, evil lady...not showing even one photo! You know that means I will just HAVE to go out (in the 100+ heat) to get a copy! If I send it to you, will you autograph it. I just love being famous through association!
What a honor...I am thrilled for you and I can't wait to sit down and drool!
