Thank You Romantic Homes Magazine!

Hello everyone. I have some exciting news....
I am very pleased and honoured to have been featured in the July 2012 issue of Romantic Homes magazine.



When Beth Livesay contacted me back in February and asked if she could feature my blog in the magazine, I couldn't believe she meant my blog! 

You see, when I began blogging three and a half years ago, it was to fill a void in my life. I had been a church secretary and had loved creating bulletins and writing short stories for them.
When my hubby and I finished our pastorate there, I really missed the writing and creativity.
So, I decided to create a blog and hopefully it would be a place  where my children who live off Island, could pop in once in a while and see what their mom was up to.

I never dreamed my little blog would attract such attention!
I have learned so much from others and met so many lovely friends here in Blogland that it has virtually changed my life. I even started my own virtual Tea Party and I'm having a lot of fun doing it!

Thank you Beth Livesay and Romantic Homes for your wonderful magazine feature. I am truly honoured to be featured among so many other talented people!




And thank you to all of you, my dear bloggy friends. You encourage and inspire me every day with your visits and lovely comments.
Most of all, I want to thank my biggest fans, my hubby and my family, that means you too, Auntie P. God bless you all!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  6. Romantic Homes and Victoria are my favorite magazines but with a very tiny budget I am no longer able to subscribe to them and buying them individually is out of the question so I wait until I can find them in an Antique Mall I frequent which is quite close; however I do preview them on the shelf at a local coffee/tea/ and bookstore when a dear friend and I share a quite time on Monday evenings. I will be sure and check it out now that I know (feel as though I know you through your delightful blog) is in the magazine.

    Joyfully,
