A few weeks before my due date, we had finally put the finishing touches on baby girl's nursery. I was happy to have it all done, and decided to snap the pics to share on my blog.
I must admit that right when we found out we were pregnant, I got so super excited about getting to decorate a nursery. I had the ideas flowing and websites like Pinterest and Apartment Therapy were totally getting my creativity flowing. And then I decided, that if her nursery turned out as I had planned, I wanted to submit it to Apartment Therapy just to see if it might get "published" on their blog. A small goal of sorts.
Fast forward to the few weeks before my due date. I did just that. I took the photos and decided to submit them. When you finish submitting, they send you an automated message saying that you would be notified if they decided to "publish" your nursery.
The weeks went by and I never got an email. And then we went to the hospital and came home with our baby girl. I hadn't even thought about it with all the newness of Ellis. And then last Saturday I was on Pinterest and noticed someone had pinned my photo of E's alphabet wall. I clicked on it, thinking the link would lead to my blog. Nope, the link led me to Apartment Therapy! A happy surprise to say the least! The nursery title is Chandler's Colorful Crafty Space because at that point when I submitted, we still had not decided if her name was going to be Chandler or Ellis.
Email notification or not, that surprise made this new mama a happy girl.
Thanks for dropping by :)
