House of Fifty!!!

Monday, September 10, 2012

The fall 2012 issue of House of Fifty is out and I must say that this is the best issue yet.  It just keeps getting better and better.  I'm so proud of Janell for following her dreams and am also proud of the incredible contributors who bring so much talent to the magazine. 


My favorite article was "Beautiful Interiors Become High Fashion", a combination of my two loves. 


You may remember a while back when I asked for your help choosing a picture for an article that I was writing about raising boys.  Surprise!  The article is in this issue of House of Fifty.  It was such a honor to be a contributor that I am over the moon!


Being a mother of teenagers certainly doesn't make me an expert, but I did share a few things that I think have helped along the way.  I would love to hear your thoughts for surviving the teen years after you have a chance to read House of Fifty.

I agree with Courtney....I know since I have been following your blog you have been such an inspiration to me, in more ways than one. Beautiful photo of you and your boys. It really reflects the wonderful relationship you have with them.

  11. That's awesome. I can't get the magazine here in France but I'm going to see if I can read the article on line somehow. Beautiful photo of you three. My two boys are grown and gone and I'm so proud of the young men they've become. Honestly, when they were teenagers, I never thought it would happen!

  14. I cannot believe you are the mother of teenage boys! You look too young...your next article for HOF should be all about your skin care routine.
