Holiday Feature: Midwest Living Magazine

It's official!

It's finally out.

The holiday issue of 
Midwest Living 
 December 2013 
was released to newsstands! 

You may remember 
when I posted about it
right after the photo shoot 
that took place here
last December? 
You can read about it here.

Just saw the first hard copy 
of the feature yesterday!
So exciting. It all seemed like
a dream until now.

I'm putting together a collection 
of the photos they selected 
and will post them tomorrow.

In the meantime,
here is a sneak peak 
at some of the photos.

Please stop back this weekend 
to see more photos ---
some that made it into the magazine
and some that didn't!

Have a lovely weekend!

I haven't seen that magazine in the southeast but you bet I can find one somehow. Wow, I know somebody famous. Your family is so sweet. Is that hubby trimming the tree or just a handsome neighbor brought in for a prop? LOL!
