Better Homes & Gardens December Issue


I have to admit, I've been looking forward to this issue for awhile.
For one, the Christmas edition is hands down my favorite when it comes to all the home & lifestyle magazines. 
But this one is special because it features a fellow blogger's home.
Lauren's blog was the very first blog I ever discovered.
Up till then I knew what blogs were but had only seen the very big, commercialized ones.
I had never seen a regular (albeit a fabulous designer's) blog.
Written by a working mom about her own home, which at the time I started reading Lauren's
was in the basement of her mother's house while she was house hunting for her own. 
She shared images of homes & designers that inspired her,
shared stories about her family and motherhood, and her up and coming business.
 I was hooked and within days was reading a slew of other blogs too.
In the past three years her blog has become one of the most popular,
but I feel like I can say I "knew " her when. 
Congrats to you, Lauren!  You, your home, and your family look gorgeous!
