This picture speaks a thousand words! We just want to grab everyone who came and give them a big ol' country hug. We did a lot of it at the event, and probably scared some folks to death. If I had met you, thought I had met you or really wanted to meet you, or just made eye contact with you...you probably got a hug. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the support and kind words on our blog. We really appreciate you!!
As mentioned previously, our camera got crushed by either my big foot or a car in the early morning of the event, BUT, we were so fortunate to have had some of our friends (old and new) take lots, and lots of pictures. They all really captured the essence of The Barn House Experience!

There are rumors spreading that we cheated a bit to win the Chili Cook-Off. I won't mention names (Barry-"King" of Tarte), but folks are saying we only won because I was winking, smiling too much, flirting, kissing babies and pinching bottoms to get extra votes. Joe apparently dressed up as a Chippendale and was giving lap dances for extra votes. Not ALL of this is true, but sometimes you do have to work with what ya mama gave you!!! The Barn House alter-ego is "J&J's Suga Shack" for a reason! ;o)
Great things are on the horizon for Barn House! We just got our first "editorial" mention in Country Pleasures Magazine y'all!!! Be sure to check out the August issue (not pictured) to see what the lovely Joelle had to say about us. :o)
Linda and Ludmil of Willow Nest are coming to Barn House - August 16th!!!!They are our inspiration. They have encouraged us and supported us and guided us through everything that is Barn House. We love them dearly. AND they are coming all the way from Texas for little ol' us (they might have other stuff to do too but who cares about that)!!! We have lots to say about how special this event will be...more to come soon...
