7 minutes of fame...

i would have thought it woulda been longer, but that's the amount of time it took me to read the not one, not two, but three articles my design work is in recently!!!   could not be more pumped at the publicity i've had lately.  seriously.  holy crap!!!  the past month has been bananas.  thank you thank you thank you to becky harris, contributing writer for houzz, who wrote a "room of the day" article on my "house on the ridge"!!!  read the wonderful article yourself here.  what is completely amazing to me is that the photos on my houzz profile from that article all now have 2 and 3k saves.  this is astounding to me! truly blown away. 

the perfect timing gods were definitely in it to win it when the fall/winter issue of kitchen + bath makeovers came out!!  i was actually visiting my dad when i saw the facebook post from uber field editor, lisa mowry, that the current issue was on newsstands!!!  you know i'm a sap, but how really, truly, honestly, awesome was it to get to read the article out loud to my dad...  who moved my tissues??!!

here's the article:

thank you, emily followill jenkins, for such gorgeous photos and thank you, linda eggerss, for translating my telephone ramble into a coherent article!!  i love this bathroom to the moon, but the fact that there are so many emotions behind it in reality makes it all the more special.  seriously!!  where the hell are the tissues???

and then there's this...

i really can't express how honored i am to be included in the september issue of atlanta homes and lifestyles showhouse issue!!!!  one of my design crushes, robert brown, is on the cover!  when i found out i was one of the designers selected to participate in the 45th atlanta symphony orchestras decorators showhouse and gardens i was beyond ecstatic. it was such a wonderful experience and i've made so many new friends and colleagues! i am so very grateful for the opportunity.  to be one of the rooms in the magazine is really an honor (trust me, after the initial elation of being selected wore off a bit, i searched all the back issues of ah&l and realized that powder rooms rarely make it into the issue).

i am so fortunate to be doing what i love and to be working with so many cool, interesting, and trusting clients, but to have my work showcased in national publications is just out of this world.

damn.  wow.
