16 IHeart: Young House Love

Forgive me for a moment while I take a second to compose myself.  I am a little winded after doing a major happy dance and calling my main main to share with him my big news.  Just when I thought things were great, they just got even better.

As some of you may know, there is this blog called Young House Love.  Some of you may have heard of it?  OF COURSE you have!  I mention them frequently and they are like the Rolls Royce of the home improvement blog world.  They truly are inspiration in it's finest form folks!

Well, a short while back when I completed my home office makeover, I thought that I would take my chances at submitting the before and afters to my most fav blog, and shortly after, I received a note from John and Sherry themselves, mentioning they would feature my space!  I about dropped over right then and there, but I had to remain halfway composed.... for my family's sake anyway!

So I have been anxiously awaiting, {acting like a kid on Christmas morning, one that would be circling the tree and shaking the gifts to try and figure out what's inside} and today was the big day!  Oh if you all could see the massive smile I have plastered across my face! 

Thank you so very much Young House Love, John & Sherry, for featuring my space.  It means the world to me that I was picked, and I am so grateful for all of the inspiration that you guys provide me daily!

And thank you blog readers and followers!  You are what drives me to share my stories, failures and successes!  IHeart you all! 


  1. Congrats, Jen! I saw YHL's post come up in my reader, and I looked at the photo beside it and was like, "wait a minute... I've seen that little nook before! Jen got featured! Woohoo!"

    Congrats again! Of course, your office makeover is very deserving of it, too!

  8. Just found your blog through YHL (along with so many others) and love it! I spent some time looking at your "home tour" and I'm so inspired. We bought a home a year ago and we're in the process of updating it from 1986-builder-basic to 2010-modern-family. So many of your before and after pics gave me wonderful ideas! Thanks so much for sharing!!
