I'm beyond thrilled to finally share with you my latest magazine publication news.

I was contacted a couple of months ago by an interior design magazine publishing company from Rome...
Lotus Publishing.

They wanted to include my Lemonade & Sunshine party I hosted last June
in a special issue of Casa Chic focusing on the "Arte della Tavola". (Art of the Table)
I was completely flattered and jumped at the opportunity.

It wasn't until after I submitted my photos did I know the publication would be available throughout Europe...
Paris, Rome, Italy...oh my!!!

Thank you SO much Annarita from Lotus Publishing for including me in this beautiful issue!!
I feel so fortunate and I was so excited to receive my two official copies in the mail.
They are gorgeous...
I've been completely inspired by all of the other talented designers that are part of this special issue.

If you happen to be in Europe or have relatives that can pick you up a copy...
It's available on newsstands now!! *wink*
I seriously feel so completely honored.
One of my biggest dreams is to travel to Italy...(see this post)
At least some of my photos and design work made it there! *wink*
This is definitely going down as one of the highlights of my journey!!!

KEEPiNG iT REAL
Although I can't read a lick of the magazine - I can easily spot my name and website
and the other articles included are complete eye candy.
My neighbor friend is going to help me translate some of it! *wink*

Congratulations Jess, this is HUGE!! I'm so excited for you. What an honor! And hey, not sure if my email came through a few weeks ago asking what blog conferences you may be attending this year? Just am curious as I am considering a few. Congrats again, you totally deserve such awesome press!

I am so excited for you! I know how hard you work and it makes me so happy that you are getting some really good exposure. You're creativity is contagious! By the way . . . you need to put that Italy trip on your promise me list. It might not get crossed off this year, but I bet it will someday.
