dabblemag is live!

Oh really? You knew already? Well, you must be wondering why I’m late to the party. You see there’s a funny story here. As many of you know I’m part of the incredible team behind DabbleMag. I have had the opportunity to not only dive into the excitement of having my own column (pg.68), but also the pleasure of bringing you a Nashville experience in the ‘Dabble does’ travel section of the launch issue (pg.86) It has truly been an incredible few months.

So to celebrate the launch I wanted to post the cover of the magazine on my blog announcing that this long awaited magazine is now live. Kimberley thought it was a great idea. I waited and I waited. Nothing. I didn’t understand WHY I wasn’t given the cover to post on my blog Sunday night for the launch Monday morning. Sheesh!

To give you some background on this image, we happened upon this little treasure on a rainy day and soon realized the store was closed. When we were given the gift of an extra day in Nashville due to a winter storm on the east coast, this gave us the opportunity to go back and take a peak. We fell in love with it and started snapping some shots. In the making of a magazine there are hundreds of images taken, sometimes thousands, and so many of them are exceptional. There were many that we loved and often yelled ‘cover’! we were so excited about it.

Monday morning, I was as excited as everyone else to tear into the pages of the magazine. With a higher volume of traffic than expected I was unable to connect to the site. It was killing me!

Then….I saw a tweet from Sarah Gunn (@lovelaughshop) “@nylafree Love your cover shot on @dabblemag Nyla!”


I finally got on the site and, well, there I was. Wow. I was speechless AND I realized why I wasn’t given the cover to post on my blog :) I feel so incredibly honored to not only have a role in the making of this launch issue, but to also be on the cover is hard to put into words. Thank you to so many of you for your kind comments and cheers. I never dreamed I would be a Cover Girl LOL!

I hope you all have had a chance to not only look, but read through the first issue of DabbleMag. If not, what are you waiting for?  There is so much goodness on each and every page.

Team Dabble is already hard at work on the May/June issue. I hope you’ve subscribed so you don’t miss a beat!
