Y’all know how to show a boy some love! Aside from the birthday wishes, you all made January the BEST month to date for Courtney Out Loud. 2012 is kicking off to be a banner year so let’s take a moment to look back and highlight at what made January so very awesome……
I started off the year giving myself some directives on how I want to live my life in 2012……
I was pleasantly reminded why I enjoy blogging when two readers shared their own projects inspired by my living room paint stencil.
January also found me working with one of my “design crushes”, Thomas Wold on a new design project for a client….
Even with all the work I somehow managed to snag this month (3 new jobs in January – go me!), I was still able to put out some kick ass recipes from the kitchen including a delicious one for Butternut Squash and Pear Soup as well as a manly meal of Rib Eye Steak with Whisky Sauce and Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes…..
Even with a full tummy (and an expanding waist line), I found time to tell y’all about a few items I have been coveting in my ongoing “Loving Out Loud” series including the Roberts DAB Radio, Hudson Bay Point Blankets and the Alpine Bed from Modernica …..
I also officially kicked off a new ongoing series for the blog called “Guest Vignettes” where I am asking some of my favorite bloggers to share a vignette in their home and explain its sentimental meaning to them. I was lucky enough to snag Holly from the Almost 40 Year Old Intern and Alycia from Tablescapes at Table Twenty-One…..
February is gearing up to an even better month with some new interviews, another give away and maybe a video or two!
So did you have a favorite post from January or have a suggestion for something you want to see on the blog? Drop me an email or comment and let me know!
