Eons Ago I Met Young House Love

I can't even remember what month it was, but I met Young House Love earlier this year - I guess I should go look it up to be sure it was actually this year, but I'm writing this while my Lil Lovebird is napping, and I really want to get it down and will forget to check later before publishing . . .

Anyway, yes, I met YHL at their NYC book signing! I've been following them for a few years now especially inspired by how they used to live in NYC and left for VA, a state we were eyeing at one point, and they have a daughter about the same age as Nia. Also, being into cloth diapers I basically used their how-to post as my own get-started guide, annnnd it turns out we see eye-to-eye on a few other household topics

So back to the book signing...

It was at FLOR in Soho - they make stylish carpet tiles. En route all the way from Jersey City I was heading there at a fast pace and was a bit oblivious to who was in front of me until it was too late to say anything:


Yeah - when I'm on-task pounding NYC pavement I'm quite focused! Enough words, here's what went down . . .






I had hoped John and Sherry would've held a Q&A or spoke like they did at some of their other book signings, but I have to say it was great just to meet them (and the other fans in line!). They were very personable and warm just as they come across on the blog. Hooray for meeting fellow bloggers in IRL!

I'll be back later this week with an YHL-inspired office makeover post . . .

Are you into DIY/interior design blogs? Which are your favorites? 
 
 

P.S. I ended up winning the raffle for FLOR tiles which I couldn't use in our last apartment but was hoping to use in our new one (the previous tenants ripped up the wood floors in the bedrooms and installed tile ughhh), but they were such a distinct pattern that they didn't match anything whatsoever and were unusable so I gave them away when I found out I'd have to pay shipping to exchange them (they're crazy HEAVY!) =(
