Romantic Homes Feature + More Sale Items

Today was one of those amazing mail days that don’t happen often, but the latest issue of Romantic Homes was in my mailbox, and I’ve got a feature in it!

I wanted to hug the mailman, but that might have been a tad awkward, so I just acted cool and casual until he drove away.

Then I danced all around my driveway. 🙂

When the Romantic Homes editor, Staci Dumoski contacted me, I freaked out a little.

It wasn’t because I was excited (although I was).  It was because I’ve killed, not one, but two computers.

I drowned the first one(don’t laugh – I do most of my blog work while soaking in the tub), and the hard drive crashed on the second one.

I lost a lot of photos and I had no idea whether I’d be able to come up with the full size, high resolution images she wanted.

Learn from my mistakes.

Never prop your leg on your bathtub table to shave while your computer is on it.

Back up your computer regularly.

My husband was able to salvaged some photos from the drowned computer, but all was lost when the hard drive crashed on the second computer.

So, I sent her what photos I could find and hoped she’d like some of them.

Thankfully, she did and included them in a Repurposed Vintage feature.

I’m going to relax and soak in the tub again tonight and enjoy looking through every beautiful page of the rest of the magazine.

I’ll leave my computer on my desk. 🙂
