Bursting at the seams | A sneak peek | Land of Nod

Several months ago, I opened up an email that made my heart stop beating (but in a really good way!). I sat there stunned as I read it, overwhelmed at the kindness and generosity of The Land of Nod. Long story short, The Land of Nod has a series, that they produce in their magazines, called Real Families. And in a few months, you'll recognize our little family in that feature! I feel so thankful for such a tremendous gift to my boys (and our entire family, really!). I happily obliged and am in the process of working through our list, choosing items for the boys' completely redone shared space. I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek though because, seriously, I just can't contain my excitement any longer!

p.s. Hurry back here on Thursday, as there will be a generous giveaway for Him + Her with the beautifully authentic Spectrum company, just in time for Valentine's Day!

  1. Oh, Sarah! What a perfectly serendipitous opportunity! I am so thrilled for you! SO...are they providing you your wish list to fill your home with Land of Nod goodies to be included as background for the shoot? And are you the official photographer? Or are they sending a representative out? I'm so curious about this (and UBER-EXCITED for you!!!) :) Ok, ok...I'll be patient... :)

    1. Erin,
      I know it. I KNOW it! It has been so surreal. I turned in my almost-complete list last week and it was approved. The next step is to arrange for everything to be sent here to the house-- talk about a happy mail day! : ) In a couple of months, TLON will be sending out a design team and photographer for a couple of days to design the room for the shoot and to photograph it and our family. As I understand, they will probably bring extra items along for the photo-shoot that will be taken back to their props department but they let me choose anything that would be of use for the boys' room. So incredibly, beyond belief generous. I feel so bad-- my taste is so simple and I have a feeling they will arrive and say, "oh no, why did we pick this girl?!" : ) Can't wait to share more as I know! Thanks so much for your excitement for us, friend!

  3. How exciting! And what a blessing!! :) Can't wait to read about it! I think they'll love your style too. I've found for me that simple is best, especially during this season with small children. You have a beautiful home already - excited to see the new additions! :)

    1. Thank you, Beth! To be honest, I'm a little nervous about getting everything set up on time. But today, LON emailed me assuring me that their designer, who will be here for a couple of days, is very helpful and that is very reassuring to know that she'll be here! Can't wait to share it!

  10. amazing beyond belief. Do I really know YOU?! This is some sort of dream, right? Our Father knows how to give good gifts and He knows exactly who to give them to. I'm confident in that and therefore extremely happy for you!

    1. I know it. It certainly does seem like a dream. You must promise to come see it in person. (And stay for a couple of days!) Promise?
