I just can't tell you how excited I was when I opened my email this morning and saw a note from Holly Becker – the queen of one of my most favorite blogs Decor8 – saying she had posted the Country Thanksgiving photo shoot I had send her to the Simply Stated blog she writes for Real Simple magazine!!!! I danced around the house!! I love Real Simple magazine – their approach is so similar to mine – more isn't necessarily better – stick with the basics – but make them great!
How did this come about you ask? Well, recently I gathered my dear friends Pat & Sherry of Pat's Floral Designs, Jen of Jen Fariello Photography and Katherine from Festive Fare/Classic Party Rentals and told them how I really wanted to create an all out fabulous Thanksgiving table and wondered if they'd want to do it with me. I didn't know what we'd use the photos for but knew we'd find something to do with them – if only post them here on my blog! So, we planned – we created – we photographed and then, I reached out to a few a editors and writers that I admire and before I knew what happened (like the very next morning!), here we are on Real Simple.com! How awesome is that? God is so good!
I'll post more photos & details over the coming days and a recipe for those darling mini ginger pumpkin pies you see (which were so yummy!!).
In the meantime I'd better get back to work.
Happy, happy Monday to you!!
