Some Young Lovin'

That's Young House Lovin' to be exact!!
Anyone ever heard of the Awesomeness that is the blog Young House Love?  Well if you've known me for more than 5 minutes you've probably heard of it, because I'm kind of obsessed!
How obsessed you ask...

Well, I'm obsessed enough to have DIY art inspired by them hanging in my bathroom:

And, obsessed enough to have trudged my butt out in this:

For 2 minutes of this:

And a very special this:

Yes people, that is Sherry & John Petersik, next to Moi, at West Elm in Boston after they just signed my copy of the DIY handbook they wrote together.
This couple is truely amazing.  They have been married 5 years, have a beautiful daughter at home, and the make their living, TOGETHER, both working at home writing this amazing blog.  Somehow they have time in their days to do multiple projects, take photos before, during, and after said projects, edit those photos, upload those photos, and write 2 blog posts per day, all while taking care of their 2 year old.  Did I mention that they do all of this together, 24/7 as husband and wife and they both work at home...and they haven't killed each other!
That alone is worthy of a drive out in the snow people, but honestly, they are so super cool in person, totally exactly how they sound on the blog.  They make you feel as if you really know them and you're their new bff.

Even though listening to their suggestion to buy the book at the signing location instead of online cost me an additional TEN dollars more than I could have gotten it for on Amazon...I guess I still like them since their book is so great!

So glad I could make it to the signing and get to meet them, and I can't wait to start doing some projects from their book!
(don't worry I'll keep you posted on any projects that get done!)
