Blog Love: Thank you Blog Friends!

I wanted to thank Michele from "My Notting Hill" SO MUCH for doing a post on me. I'm super-flattered & really excited! :)





And ~No. 35 Style ~ also did a great post on adorable cottage lighting & put a link to my blog on there. She has some great ideas for ways to use it!!


Lindsay from LEB also set up a link to pure style home & wrote a fun post about moss and all the great ways to use it!!
Joni from the famous Cote de Texas wrote an amazing post on kitchens & included the kitchen from Beach Dwelling that I'd written about & a link back to pure style home. Thanks Joni!!





And I found myself on Room Lover which was pretty cool. I wrote a comment on there but I'm not sure if that's type of blog. But it's a very cool site she's set up. She does bios on a bunch of interior designers. It's a great reference.



And thank you to Camila from High-Heeled Foot in the Door, for a really sweet post she wrote about me. She was one of my first non-family member readers haha & has pretty much taught me how to blog. I remember emailing her after her first comments & asking her how to blog haha. And she told me! :) Thanks so much Camila!!

And how could I have forgotten, one of my FIRST EVER blog mentions (I went nutty when I got her email alerting me that she'd picked some of my posts for her favorite posts of 2008!) Things That Inspire!


And finally, Eddie Ross for his mention in his first flea market trip post. He & Jaithan carefully documented the whole trip & wrote about it on their blog, even putting a link to my website on it. Since then we've become friends & had the best time revisting them again at their (beautiful!!!) apartment in New York.

Ayway, thanks so much to all of you & I'm just having the best time getting into blogging & meeting so many new, sweet & extremely talented people. Everyone just includes everyone & it really has been a great experience. I was afraid to write comments when I first started because I thought no one wanted to hear "oh i love that!" but I realized how happy it makes me to get that from someone else & now I'm so much less self-conscious about leaving comments than I used to be. And I'm definitely looking forward to some type of blogger reunion one day!!! (Let's get thinking!! :)


xoxo,

Lauren


ps- Off to Florida to visit family for the long weekend!!! wahooooo

Things That Inspire said...

I love the design blog world. I know that some deride them and say it is all 'so pretty, i love this, i love that', but there is so much bad news in the world, isn't it nice to have a little corner of the internet that focuses on the beautiful?

I enjoyed the post about you on My Notting Hill, and don't forget, I picked one of your posts as my best of 2008! I really enjoyed finding your blog last year, and could tell it was something special.

Suzanne said...

Lauren said...

Things Than Inspire- How could I have forgotten to mention it??!! (I just edited & now have you on there!) I can't tell you how much I freaked out (in a good way :)when I got your email about your favorite posts of 2008!! :) Thank you so much for your encouragement!!

Thank you for visiting me at my blog, and leaving comments Lauren; I so appreciate it.

I love what you said about not wanting to leave comments at first...I felt the same...all these people are so talented and well read.
