icing on the cake.

I make it a point to not post the same things on my different blogs.     I am making an exception.

 INSPIRED HOME OMAHA magazine wrote about our home in the November-December 2013 issue that will be delivered to subscribers this week, and went online at the Inspired Home Omaha web site this weekend. We are humbled and giddy all at the same time.  This truly felt like icing on the cake for our house project.

Editor Chris Christen was gracious to feature us in her opening editorial on Page 6, and our article entitled "A Big House on the Prairie Gets a Loving Restoration" is on Pages 50-57. Use the link below to take a peek!

Chris and I went to grade school and high school together. We rekindled our friendship over this process which has made this whole wonderful ordeal even more magical.

It was great fun to see that Chris included 22 add'l photos on the Inspired Home Omaha web site. You can view them by clicking on the Amazing Spaces / More Photos (22) link.

We really feel honored by the magazine article. Mike said "It feels like a fitting capstone to this project, and I feel that we experienced God's Grace by even getting the house done."  I started the Our Big House On The Prairie blog back in 2010 as a place to encourage Mike with the progress he was making on the house. Back when there was so much yet to do that you could easily forget that you had done anything!  Magic happened when readers followed us, and cheered us along the way with their loving comments & encouragement.

Guess what else?  Mother Rabbit has been asked to contribute ideas & articles for the magazine.  If you look closely, you will see a couple things that I comtributed in this issue.  Chris is a real dear to allow me to be a small part of her amazing creative team.
