It’s a Beautiful Day!

 On the first day of Blogfest 2011, I looked up to see Newell Turner, Editor-in-Chief of House Beautiful being interviewed by Jennifer Powell of Kravet. I knew he would be at the event but had assumed I wouldn’t get a chance to meet him.
I was wrong!
Charming beyond measure and receptive to my teenage-like enthusiasm, we chatted about House Beautiful and how I wish I had brought my copy of the Pink Issue for him to sign. Remember it from March? Pink splashed across the cover and throughout the editorial. I felt they had created it with me in mind.
He graciously signed a copy of the current issue of the magazine and I was delighted with that. 

 So, imagine my surprise when he found me in the auditorium before the lecture and handed me this! An autographed copy of the Pink Issue! Thank you, Newell…..it will be framed on my desk this week.

Moments like this are what made Blogfest such an incredible experience. And, I am grateful I was there.

Whose autograph do you have or would you want to have?

Wishing you a beautiful day and a fun-filled weekend, doing whatever you love.
