My Magazine Feature

Hello everyone!

Well, I'm can hardly contain myself now that the magazine is out on newsstands that has our home featured in it!  I heard about it last week, but only just now found it.  I was overwhelmed with happiness as I flipped through it reading every word.  I did not see the article until just now.  I was happy to see that everything was written correctly and gave me great pride to read my family names mentioned in it as well.

  
Here are a couple of pages from my feature.
It's titled "French Essence".


You'd never know, by looking at this photo, that the temps were freezing outside!


Even my sweet blogging friend, Laurie from Heavens Walk, was featured!  

This is her pretty porch.


It's such an honor to have been selected to be in a real magazine!  Mine is now sitting out on my coffee table with pride.  

Many thanks go out to the people involved.  My dear sister, Kim, for sending my name to Fifi O'Neill (the founder of the magazine) in the first place.  Also, to Fifi for choosing me.  The photographers, Gridley and Graves who had to battle a snowstorm just to get here, and to Sandra  Soria, the writer of my article and editor of the magazine.

So, I will be wearing a smile on my face all weekend I'm sure!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Father's Day on Sunday too.

Thanks for stopping by.

~ Kelly ~
