I woke up this morning to see Layla and Kevin Palmer
of the popular blog "The Lettered Cottage"
on the front of the Lifestyle section of
my local newspaper.
Layla and Kevin live in Prattville, Alabama
which is just across the river from Montgomery
where I live.
I first heard of Layla and Kevin when the newspaper
ran a story on them and their blog in 2009.
When I entered the blog world a few months ago,
I became a follower of their blog.
In following their blog, I knew that they had filmed
a pilot for HGTV so I wrote the newspaper,
The Montgomery Advertiser, to make sure they knew
about the Palmer's new adventure.
The newspaper may have already known about the Palmer's HGTV pilot before my letter,
but I'm going to let myself think I was instrumental in the paper doing a follow-up article.
Here is the entire article if you would like to read it:
Also, the Palmer's are in the new issue of
Better Homes and Gardens "Christmas Ideas".
I had purchased the magazine to see the article
featuring blogger Kate Riley of "Centsational Girl"
because I had read her post about the photo shoot.
(It's funny and so interesting to see the behind the scenes.)
I didn't even know that Layla and Kevin and their
home was also featured in the magazine.
I've never met the Palmer's but if they ever need other
blogger's help on a local project, I would love to
be a volunteer and work with them.
