2015 Readers’ Favorite Decorating Blog {Better Homes & Gardens}

The Inspired Room Kitchen Remodel

There was a little bit of awesome news a couple of weeks ago that I haven’t yet shared! But, it is really is SO exciting it cannot wait another day! Thank you so much for voting my little ol’ blog The Inspired Room as the Readers’ Favorite Decorating Blog TWO YEARS IN A ROW at Better Homes & Gardens! SAY WHAT? 2014 AND 2015? I’m honored. Humbled. Grateful. I cannot believe it!

Honestly, (and I’m not even being fake humble when I say this, ha!) but I seriously thought it might be a fluke the first year. Ha! But then AGAIN this year? You guys. If I could invite you all over right now for a big hug to thank you, I would. Then we could sit around in my kitchen drinking coffee out of giant mugs (while Jack tries to entertain us) so we could chat about all the things we love to talk about here everyday, except it would be way better than everyday because you’d really be HERE instead of me being here talking to myself just hoping you are still out there, sipping coffee and nodding your head along with me.

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” — C.S. Lewis

So, I just wanted to thank you, friends, from the bottom of my heart, for making this blog a joy for me to be a part of every day, for your amazing support of my book release, and for the great honor of the Better Homes & Gardens Readers’ Favorite Decorating Blog award for the past two years. I <3 You.

And yes, that is my kitchen via Better Homes & Gardens! :)

You can find the announcement and all the other winners here! (I promise I won’t get a big head, despite how it may look by the way my photo is sized on the page, haha!)
