A feeling of great enthusiasm and eagerness.

Something that triggers such a feeling; an exciting incident.


excitation – agitation – fluster – thrill

Have you ever experienced excitement?  I’m sure you have, probably many times!  Lots of different things can produce excitement.  I have an exciting announcement to share with you – and it definitely brings a feeling of great enthusiasm and eagerness to me.  Along with some fluster, a little agitation (what if I can’t pull this off), and a lot, a lot of thrill.

If you have never read Jennifer Carroll’s blog – please, by all means, get yourself over there now and check it out.  You have to see her Ralph Lauren inspired dinner party for two, here and here.  And her hot cocoa bar, here and here.  And her Christmas tree was amazing and definitely a must-see.  All of her decor is amazing and her photos are excellent.  Jennifer produced an online magazine in the past and all issues were wonderful.  She had to put it aside for a while, but now she is relaunching it, and besides a tablet version it will also be available to purchase in print!  Jennifer has become one of my close blog friends, I cannot wait till I can meet her in real life!  So I am overjoyed for her that God has blessed her with the opportunity to relaunch her magazine and brought people into her life who are helping her with the work load of producing it. And on top of that – SHE ASKED ME TO BE A CONTRIBUTOR TO THE MAGAZINE!!!  Can you believe it?!  Excitement really doesn’t begin to cover it.  And just look at this line-up of contributors!  Yep.  Excited.  And all the synonyms related to it.


Amy at A Nest for All Seasons, Beth at Unskinny Boppy, Jennifer Rizzo, Kelly at Eclectically Vintage, Lucy at Craftberry Bush, and KariAnne at Thistlewood Farm and me!

Check out all these gals too – they have great blogs, great personalities, and will be wonderful additions to your blogrolls :)

And check out Jennifer’s back issues here.  Absolute loveliness in every single one.
