BUST Magazine Feature!

I don't know why I haven't already posted about this because it has been one of the most exciting pieces of press I've ever received. I was contacted by BUST magazine earlier this year to share photos of my home in their Homegirl column and was kind of beside myself that they were interested! I sent in some self-portraits and we did a phone interview and then I kind of forgot about it until my copy came in the mail last month. It was pretty thrilling!

Anyway, it was fun to get to share photos of our home in printed form. Thank you to BUST for the unique opportunity and to all of you who shared your congrats through twitter comments! And a special thank you to Danielle for sending me an extra copy that showed up at her doorstep to replace the one Ruby practiced her shredding skills with. Now I'll have one to show my teenage daughter when she's old enough to think I'm so 2010. Ha!

xoxo,
Rachel

p.s. Today was the day Brett and I first met after English 101 on our second day of college classes Freshman year. That was ten years ago! Brett surprised me again this year with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a trip to the new cupcake shop downtown. I think the fact that he celebrates that day every year when I usually don't remember is pretty fantastic. Thanks, love!

Aww, what a sweet husband! What new cupcake shop? I was there a couple weeks ago and talked to the baker at Supreme Bakery (which is awesome by the way)and she said Springfield didn't have a cupcake shop!

RachelDenbow said...

OOOh, girl! There are two downtown now but one is about a year old and is more of a mom and pop type joint. It's not quite as trendy as the new one close to Good Girl Art on Walnut.

They have the pretty ones in tons of flavors!
