Hello friends! So this week has been slow on the blog but for good reason! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you might have seen this picture I recently shared. I spent the day with stylists and a photographer from Better Homes and Gardens! Still pinching myself that it actually happened. My kitchen and a lot of its organization is going to be featured in an upcoming Storage issue! I’m not sure when yet.. maybe next Spring? Of course I’ll let you all know the second I know when it’s coming out. :) Today was crazy but so much fun. A full day of styling, organizing and photography with the experts. My mouth hurts from smiling! I was definitely in my happy place. :) It’s a two day shoot so they are coming back tomorrow. Tomorrow will mostly be all about my pantry. Fun stuff going on in that space and I can’t believe I still haven’t shared it on the blog yet. I need to get on that before you all see it in the magazine first! ;)
I took some fun ‘behind the scenes’ shots today and will share them all with you tomorrow. I was going to post them tonight but I’m exhausted! I spent the first part of the week making sure everything in my kitchen was picture perfect (not an easy task with three kids in tow!) and woke up so early today. The crew came bright and early this morning and was here until around 6:00 pm and then I was running my kids around to activities and dinner and homework… I just sat down to post and feel like I could sleep for days! And it’s killing me I haven’t had time to post this week because I have so many fun things to share with you all! Coming soon!
There was a moment today when I sat back and just took it all in and felt so grateful. I can’t thank you all enough for the love and support you’ve shown me and my blog over the years. It truly means the world to me.
Alright. I better head to bed before I get sappy and say something my husband will give me a hard time about later. ;) Night friends! I’ll be back soon.

Actually, i can’t believe it that you actually took time and energy to write this … especially when you already had a long day, and that there’s a DAY 2 the very next day! You are amazing!
We are all very excited for you, and can’t wait to hear more, and also grab that copy of Better Homes and Gardens!
Thank you so much sweet Cyndi! Oh my word.. I was going to get pics up tonight but another long day.. tomorrow I will breathe! And post. :) Thank you so much sweet friend! xo
Yay! I’m so happy for you, Erin! Your beautiful house and beautiful YOU need to be in magazines! You have such a talent for designing an absolutely beautiful and charming home while also using the space effectively for creative and functional storage. I love all the detail work you personally designed and had built. You also have a real talent in knowing just how to furnish and decorate your home in order to show its beauty. I’m so very happy for you!

Oops i meant GO SLEEP LOL
Thank you so much Ursula! xo
Yes, better get on that pantry post soon Erin! Haha! I’m dying to see it, but your whole house is amazing anyway. I’m still thinking about your garage storage since I last read it. It’s funny because I sometimes talk about all these things to my husband. He asks, “who are these people you’re talking about?” He just doesn’t share my excitement and I don’t understand at all. LOL!
Too funny Debbie! My husband doesn’t understand most of my blogging world and I’ve given up trying to make him understand! ha ha.. :) Thanks cutie! xo
Erin!!! What a dream come true to have BHG in your home for photographs!! I absolutely can’t wait until this comes out next year and I am so excited for you!!! Please keep us posted on a timeframe of when this will be in the magazine and remember, I want an autographed copy!!! 😍
Bree! You are the sweetest! Thank you so much cutie! I’ll let you know, but no autograph is necessary.. let’s just continue to be roomies. I’m better in person.. ha! ;) Love you! xo
So happy for you, Erin! :)
Thank you Laurie! xo
I’m so happy for you! What a dream come true! I will DEFINITELY be checking out that issue!
Thank you so much Kandace! You are so kind. That means so much to me! xo
So cool! But I’m not surprised to be seeing your home in BHG – it’s absolutely gorgeous!
What an incredibly sweet thing to say Jenny. Than you so much! xo
This is so so exciting. I’m thrilled for you Erin !
Thank you so much Heidi! You are so kind and I love hearing from you! xo
Such exciting news! I can’t think of any house I would rather see in BHG!!! Love your blog and your cute personality. Congratulations!!
Joy! Oh you just made my day with that comment. Thank you so much! So sweet of you! xo
This is so exciting!!! It’s all I can do to keep myself from picking up the phone and calling you to get all of the details! So happy for you!
Jen! Thank you so much cutie! Call me anytime although we’ll have to block out a few hours! I have a feeling any phone call with you would be like our last and we’d just chat the night away! Love that. :) xo
Congrats Erin!! How exciting and fun to be a part of that magazine. I am looking forward to that issue. Hope you get to catch up on your sleep this weekend. 💕
Thank you Amy! Never enough time to sleep.. right? ;) Enjoy your week! xo
Congrats Erin!! I am a new reader and just have to tell you I love your blog! I was drawn in when I stumbled across your mudroom organization post via instagram and can’t get enough since. Each morning I check my email, hoping for a new post. I am also crazy about organization and cleanliness. Although, with two LO and a busy life, it is SO hard to maintain the organization ALL the time. I can so relate to you.
Anyhow, your home is BEAUTIFUL…especially this kitchen! What an awesome accomplishment to be part of this magazine. I must admit I never have read this magazine but will most certainly purchase when your home is featured! God bless!!!
What a kind thing to say Vivian! Thank you so much! Your comment just completely made my day! I’m so happy you found me. :) It’s pretty much impossible with little ones to stay clean and organized all of the time, but I always feel like it’s worth trying.. ha! The struggle is real. ;) Thanks again for your sweet words! It means so much to me that you look forward to my posts. xo
