Something Romantic...

 I have been getting much more of my 'romantic' on lately
There have been a little bit more of those pinks and purples in the bouquets around here
a few more shabby floral pillows on the sofas 
and sweet soft colors showing up here and there


 I have been embracing that romantic side lately- 
no,  I am not making big romantic changes in my rooms
but I am excited to share something  'Romantic' 


I feel so fortunate to have features 
in Romantic Country and in Romantic Homes right now.
 I shared Romantic Country featuring our home when it came out
 and about a week ago
 Jo-Anne Coletti who writes the monthly article 
'Say Ahh' in Romantic Homes 
shared a photo of the new issue of Romantic Homes on facebook...


and I could hardly believe it when I saw that it was one of my photos on the cover.
Yep, I pretty much fell over.
It is such an honor and privilege to be included with such amazing talent and beautiful homes
and there are several other bloggers you might know in this gorgeous issue too.
I want to say a big thank you to Jo-Anne for including me.
 I didn't know when I started writing my blog a couple of years ago just where it would lead.
Blogging has been a blessing to me in so many ways and I feel so grateful for the incredible opportunities and friendships I have found through it.

I'll share more about that romantic styled bathroom and a sneak peek at
some of what's changing over here soon.

  6. Congratulations, Courtney!!!! That's such a beautiful photo! What a complete honor for you! I'm excited to see that you're adding a little more romance and ruffles to your decor ~ not that it wasn't amazing before...but I can just imagine how beautifully it's going to blend in and add so much femininity to what you already have. Looking forward to seeing it, sweetie! ♥

    Oh, and thanks for the link to those curtain panels. Unfortunately I had to return them. They were way too parchment colored for what I envisioned. I did recently find some very pretty lilac printed panels at Target though! Check them out in my most recent post! :)

  34. Such an eye Courtney! I need you to do some photo shoots in my Loirevillageescape.com apartment to lure some more guests to escape and sit at my windowbox overlooking a quintessentially French village. Are you up for it!! But being a one bedroom apartment it is meant for escape and romance........
    Your efforts bring much pleasure and thankfully some payback to you.
    Keep inspiring!
