We're back ya'll.

The Southern Living Conference was AWESOME! We kicked it off with a little shopping in Nashville and brunch at The Southern. Yes, I got some cowboy boots! 
The conference started Sunday afternoon and I had no idea what was in store... 
We met builders from all over the country that have been a apart of this amazing network for over years. Some of them since it started 21 years ago. They raved about this program and what it is like to have Southern Living be a partner in your business. It made me so thankful to be from the South as this magazine epitomizes all things Southern and it is coming up on it's 50th anniversary. Pinch me! 
We were inspired by their touches and always perfect attention to detail.... Yes, those are cowboy boots. 

We spent time with the editors of Southern Living and Coastal Living and loved hearing about their plans and directions for the magazines that influence so much of what we do. Jessica Thuston, homes editor of Southern Living  and Anotonia van der Meer, Editor and Chief of Coastal Living gave us lots of insight into how to grace their pages with our spaces.
Sid Evans (previously of Garden and Gun) is the new editor in chief at Southern Living. His vision for this magazine epitomizes all things Southern and hanging out with Sid was definitely a highlight. The men and women that put these publications together work tirelessly to deliver each and every month to their readers and we are thankful that they do!

One of the best parts of the conference was collaborating with some of the amazing designers that are part of this network. There are currently 31 from all over the country and I am so honored to be one of them. Designers include so many that I have admired for so long. Each and everyone inspires me and have so much to contribute to this amazing network. On the list include Tobi Fairley, Paige Schnell, Meg Braff, Margaret Kirkland, Julie Holloway... this list goes on with such great talent. Pinch me! Thank you Southern Living for an amazing trip!
