apple Our Fifth House: What the What?!

What the What?!

With the kids out of school, I have less computer time.  Yesterday I checked a few blogs in the morning and then I was off to run errands with the kids.  When we got home we spent the rest of the day outside in the backyard.  I sent the kids to bed at around 9:00 p.m., and I didn't come back in until after 10 p.m.  I left my phone in the car when we got back home, so I hadn't checked my e-mail since around 5:00 p.m.  Why am I telling you the boring basics of my day?  Because at 11:00 p.m. when I sat down in front of the computer to check my e-mail and write my blog post for today, I opened an e-mail from one of my Haven Conference roomies, Sarah aka The Thriftress.  Here's what it said:

Girl I saw you on Apartment Therapy!  You rock!  That headboard is amazing.  Congrats!


I think my head might have popped off at that very moment!  I've been reading Apartment Therapy for what feels like a lifetime so when I clicked over to see the featured post I was beyond thrilled!


Honestly, I still can't believe my eyes.  This little blog brings so much joy to my life.  I've made so many wonderful friends - many of whom I'll be meeting in real life in just a few weeks at Haven - and I feel so blessed to be a small part of such a wonderfully creative and supportive community!

Thanks Apartment Therapy for featuring my son's pegboard headboard!  And thanks Sarah for delivering the best news ever yesterday!

Thanks to all of you who read, visit, lurk, comment, e-mail.......you already know I think you're awesome!
