In this post,
I shared a bit about overcoming my fears and insecurities,
insofar as they relate to how I run this here blog.
I promised that the focus of my little corner of the net
would be more on what's going on in the Twig household,
and that's still the plan.
But I simply must alert you to a beautiful, inspiring new website
belonging to my sweet, amazing friend
Gosh, I love this gal!
She is a true Renaissance woman in every sense of the word...
Most of you probably know her from her highly influential blog,
Raised in Cotton
She is an accomplished photographer and photo stylist,
and her work has been featured in
Artful Blogging, Somerset Life, Romantic Country, Where Women Create,
Her GORGEOUS 1865 farmhouse will be featured in the fabulous Fifi O'Neill's
utterly fabulous new book, Romantic Prairie Style.
She is also an antique dealer,
and is co-owner of the vintage shop Raised in Cotton in Raymore, Missouri.
Be sure to visit her online shop, it's just wonderful!
She is an RN, a wife and a mom.
Heck, this gal does it ALL!
But to me, she has been a creative lifeline and a godsend.
Always just an e-mail or a text message away, she has helped me immeasurably
Always there with an encouraging word or a suggestion,
her cheerleading has truly helped me to believe in myself.
I truly would not have had the courage to recently take on
my first big photo shoot had it not been for Carol.
She believed I could master my scary Nikon D700,
and whaddaya know?
She was right. :-)
Having selflessly helped me with my fears and insecurities,
I think that EVERYBODY needs a Carol in their life!
