keeping secrets

Is anyone else a little miffed at Blogger right now?  My where's the sign post was removed and then added back without all of your beautiful comments.  I've been doing this for almost three years now and that's a first.  Of course it would come at a time when I needed to reread those comments over and over again.  Thank you so much for those words of encouragement and the scriptures, stories and prayers.  I just love you all so much! 

I'm relieved to say we finally came to a decision.  It was the hardest one we've made together as a family.  It came down to a hand vote and a tail wag:)  But unfortunately I have a gag order and can't talk about it for a while.  So y'all are just going to have to do some of your own waiting to hear the details!!

As far as another secret I've been keeping.  A while back Romantic Homes asked me to submit pics of my house.  I was like WHAT?  Seriously?????  Never thought in a million years that would happen. The gal who asked me was on deadline, then the photos I sent were the wrong size and then I never heard another word from her, so I had no idea if it was going to happen or not.  BUT low and behold I slowly started hearing from a few of you and then finally got my hands on my own copy.

There's my green truck,  my dad's look a-like lunch pail and my bedroom vanity...all on page 12!  I almost feel famous...almost;)  Tricia from A Rosy Note (a fellow Minnesotan) made the mag too:)  So congrats Tricia!  We can bask in our 15 milliseconds of fame together. 

Have a blessed day.

The green truck was purchased at the Carver Occasional Sales (Mustard Moon) and the lunch pail at (Seasons in Carver). 
Pin It!


  1. Yeah for you all coming together to make the decision. I'm so excited you made the magazine...I remember that truck and I love it. Way to go!

  2. Yep...Blogger had me bummed BIG TIME! I, too, have been blogging now for 3 years and this has never happened to previous post was completely wiped out and I'm missing a whole slew of comments on two posts. Oh, well, what can you do? I'm excited to hear about your decision, but understand that you need to share it at just the right time. How exciting to have your home featured in that magazine! You're like a celebrity now! :)

  3. Congratulations on the mag fame! I'll have to look for it.

  14. Oh, can't wait to hear about the decision. I'll be waiting with baited breath! :o)

    Congrats on the magazine. I'm sure impressed and may just have to go and buy a copy of the magazine.

    Blessings to you!

  15. I lost and then regained my post I had on blogger. It was very frustrating but I most likely will not change that would be more stress than I need right now. take care

    some friends along
    prodding you to spend
    your dough on those
    cute vintage pieces??

  22. congrats on the mag! how exciting :) i hope you're feeling more peace about you and can have a relaxing weekend.....6 more days! ;)

  23. I claim I'm not a slave to my blog, but when some super sweet comments about my childhood stories were erased (including words I don't want to forget from my mom and sister), I was discouraged. :( Hard not to be when you put your heart out there and get a piece back from others, but God is bigger than Blogger and technical errors, right?!?!

    What happiness about your little magazine feature!


  24. I found your blog from Lowercase Letters. I'm originally from SC but moved to Rochester, MN 2 years ago. I've been following you for awhile, but finally decided to come out of "hiding" and say congrats on the magazine pix! Love reading your blog. Nice to follow someone else who lives in the Frozen Tundra.

  25. Congratulations, oh famous one!
    Can't think of anyone who deserves it more. :-)


  26. i'm on the seat of my chair!!! i hope i don't have to wait too too long! can't wait to hear! and what a sweet surprise to see your house in a magazine.

    and blogger pretty much ruined my life this past week. maybe i'm being just a tad bit dramatic, but really. it messed me up!

    my comment said that i would pray for the Lord to make your path straight and your footsteps firm. : ) sounds like He did!

  27. NO way! No, no way! I am sooo happy for you!

  28. Its been a while since I stopped past your blog. Love the signatures on your pictures!

  29. I'm so happy about your Romantic Homes debut! I am so getting a copy!As for your family stuff one day @ a time.Seems everyone I know including my self are in a place of transition.My Prayers are with you.

  30. Congrats Becky, on the Mag stuff. That's pretty cool. You're so cute.

    I think Blogger had a bug, too, or something - at least now I've figured out I'm not the only one with an issue.


  31. You are such a super star : )
    I don't get mad at blogger.
    It's free.
    Complaining never helps.

  32. How wonderful!!! I am going to go pick up a copy!

    And yes, I was not on speaking terms with Blogger yesterday for the same reasons you stated!

  33. Blogger is not getting any dark chocolate from me thses days!

    COOL on the mag...will have to go find it.

    Hear you on the mags...I had a photo shoot a couple of years ago that they are now saying will be (finally) in print this spring...and then in the winter. Geez. The whole place is completely different now. Funny.

  34. A huge congratulations Becky. Your photos are wonderful and I can see why you were accepted. It's always fun and a bit of high when we can be published. Congrats. :)

  35. CONGRATS for making the mag! WHOOHOO girlfriend, you are BIG TIME, now! Miffed at Blogger? Yes. Just the fact that it was "unavailable?" Do they not know how that messes with our lives? DO THEY?
    (Yelling for their benefit, not yours.)
    xo, Cheryl

  36. How exciting! I could not even imagine...I bet your just over the moon!:) Oh so happy you finally have some peace now about your decision. I will look for the magazine when I go out this week...maybe you can autograph mine;)
