Lil Blue Boo in Desert Magazine!

Lil Blue Boo was featured in the Desert Magazine today. That’s Boo and I on the cover! About a month ago photographer Taili came and took photos for the spread. My Lisa came and took behind the scenes shots!

So strange reading about myself….especially quotes! I cringed a little! The photography is amazing though….you have to check out Taili’s work:

I LOVE that Diesel was in some shots :)

So fun! I am so grateful to the Desert Magazine for featuring Boo and I! I’m still in a little shock over the whole thing…..but SO excited to have that cool photo of Boo and I to frame for the house!

    This is so awesome. Congrats. I've been following for about a month now and this is one of my favorite blogs, I'm talking Top 2, hard to choose between you and A Beautiful Mess, you're tied I guess. Your family is so beautiful and your legs don't quit. I'm so jealous. Congrats again on such a wonderful accomplishment. And lil Boo getting a cover so early in life! How fun it must be to grow up with a mom like you.
