You’ll find fall inspiration and MY HOME in the Cottages & Bungalows fall magazine issue! Take a peek at how it all started!
I am seriously pinching myself! Did you know that the reason I first started an Instagram account, and then a blog, was to be featured in a national magazine someday? Yes, that was the ONLY reason! And here is my first feature. So exciting!

Remembering the Exact Moment
I remember the day that I was contacted by someone at Cottages & Bungalows Magazine, asking if I’d like my home to be featured in the fall issue of their magazine. Let’s just say I was glad that they couldn’t see the reaction on my face, or the tears streaming down my cheeks. I literally couldn’t breath.
After re-reading the message from Cottages & Bungalows about 16 or 17 times, I tried to compose myself. I was sitting in that chair in the picture above with my feet up, being waited on by my husband. I had just had foot surgery the week before and was not going to mobile and walking by the time of the photo shoot.
But a little foot surgery was not going to stop me! If it wasn’t for my incredible husband and incredible friends, I don’t know if I would have been able to do it. But it all came together and here we are!

This isn’t the best picture because of the window screen, bit you get the idea.
My Tips for Fall Cottage Charm
- Go for Rustic Textures
- Brighten You Space with Flowers
- Opt for Dried Instead of Faux Flowers
- Use a Variety of Fruits and Veggies as Centerpieces
Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to share my Cottages & Bungalows fall magazine feature. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have been given an opportunity like this! It’s pretty amazing to have a dream like this come true!
