thank you

I would like to thank Layla & Kevin over at The Lettered Cottage very much for posting one of our dressers on their BLOG. I can't tell you how excited I was when I saw the e-mail from Layla. Take a peek at what she wrote to me {simple, but meant so much to me!}:
Hi Alexandra!
I'd LOVE to use the photo of your highboy in a post I'm writing for our blog tonight. Would that be okay? I will link back to you of course! :-)
Layla Palmer


I couldn't breath, my heart was racing & I had no one to talk to. Of course I called mom... She didn't answer. Ahhh I turned to my 21 month old... Screamed & gave him a big kiss. He thought mommy was playing a new game & started running around the house screaming {nice}. Then I called my husband because I just needed to talk to someone... WOW he actually answered the phone. I told him everything. He was pretty excited for me, but had to go asap. I still needed to express my excitement.... Melissa was my next victim.... I text her. She completely understood my feelings.

My first real thought after I calmed down was, How did the Lettered Cottage find me in the BLOG world... How??? Well, I'm so happy she did! Sorry to sound crazy, wild & out of control... For some it's not a big deal, but for others {like me} it's a huge deal. I'm having a great time in the BLOG world. I hope you like what I have to offer... Comments are always welcome!
