It's Out!!!


The December issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine featuring our home is out on newstands!!!  I was also chosen as the blogger of the month and am on one of the earlier pages for that.   I fell in love with the other homes featured in it and they all have a fresh, natural feeling that I love. Thank you so much to everyone at BHG, especially, Joanna Lingberg, Jessica Thomas, Helen Norman, F.J. Hughes and Shelley Caldwell.  This has been a dream of mine & I can't thank you enough for making it such a fun & meaningful experience. 

When December arrives, I'll share some of the cool behind-the-scenes/ how-to's from the shoot. 

xoxo, Lauren
