My Home is in a Magazine!

I mainly hang out on a rural living website and recently participated in a discussion regarding how much firewood we use in a heating season. Seems like I won the door prize. The OP pm'd me for more details. He turned out to be an architect and editor of this magazine, and asked for an interview for an article...here it is!

Wow Miss Beth...that is so nice!! I've seen pictures of your garden, and areas around your home that were just awesome (I know what kind of hard work it takes) Now to read about your home makes it all the more special!! Congratulations on being selected for the article in the magazine!! I know y'all were/are excited!!!
