When I was growing up, one of the few magazines that my mom subscribed to was Country Living (she also got Newsweek each week thanks to her step-father, but that one wasn’t nearly as interesting to me). She loved the spreads of rustic antiques and because I loved anything she did, I’d pour over them with her. I believe the seeds of my jar love were planted during those days.
Many months ago, an editor from Country Living sent me an email, asking for some details on my classes. I gave her all the information I could, all the while buzzing with excitement that I might just make it into the pages of this magazine that I’d spent so many hours with.
Earlier today, I heard that the March issue was on shelves and that my classes had made the cut (thanks so much for the tip, Ashley!). I raced over to my neighborhood Barnes and Noble and flipped through the pages until I found the spread. I snuck in to the corner and took a couple photos right then and there. It’s just a little mention, but still thrills me to the core. Make sure to take a peek!
