I'm Bursting with Excitement!

Pin It Now!

I've been keeping a secret for about a month and it's been hard to keep but now I can tell everyone because Fifi has mentioned it on her blog....I'll be in the next issue of Romantic Country Magazine! My blog is going to be featured and Tara is writing the article! I am beyond excited!

I don't know what is more exciting; having my home in a magazine or having my own photography in a magazine. I took the photos they are using! I learned that taking photos for print is a lot more complex than taking photos for my blog! It was a lot of fun though and I can't wait to see which ones they use.

This blog has brought me so much happiness. Meeting so many wonderful women who share the same passion for their homes has been so much fun! Thank you all for taking the time to visit my blog and leave your wonderful comments and emails. I really appreciate each one!
Edited to add: There seems to be a little confusion...I will be in Romantic Country Magazine, not Romantic Homes Magazine. It's understandable since Tara writes about blogs for both magazines and given the name of my blog, etc.

Gail McCormack said...

Yes Cindy excitment plus, I read the news on Fifi's blog and didn't quite understand what it meant to be featured as a blog in a magazine, I went and bought a copy of Romantic Homes (yes we do have it in Australia) and now know what's going on! Good on you Cindy, I can't wait to see your photos, outstanding they will be no doubt!

Julie said...

You totally deserve this Cindy!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Hi all, just to clarify...there seems to be some confusion. I will be in Romantic Country Magazine not Romantic Homes. They both have articles on blogs now and Tara writes for both.

Congratulations, what EXCITING news! I've been a HUGE fan of yours ever since I saw your home on RMS. You have such an awesome artistic flair. I LOVE your style!Ksarra

Jen@The Cottage Nest said...

Congratulations to you Cindy! You deserve it and will be a perfect addition to that magazine.

I'm so (not) sorry that I cost you some money. You know you will love pouring over those magazines when they get to you. I think you are right about sales, I think I would be great at it but ONLY if it was something I believed in and was passionate about.

mvobsession said...

Congratulations.. how exciting.
I'll be looking for the magazine.

Oh goodie, I'm so excited for you! I don't think I ever told you, but when Tara first started asking for recommendations, I sent her your blog and told her she absolutely had to check it out. I'm sure other people recommended you too, but I wanted you to know that I did!

Hi Cindy-
I went out and bought an issue of Romantic Country Homes, it said the display date was until March 17 so I figured it was a new issue...but I guess it wasn't the right issue...be sure and let us know when the issue is out, can't wait to see our famous friend in print!
