I’m on the Cover of Redbook Magazine!

There are no clever words, or use in even trying to play this cool…that is my overly-excited, grinning mug on the cover of the September issue of Redbook magazine!!! #icanteven

I was chosen, along with five other amazing, beautiful, genuine women, as a winner of the Real Women Style Awards…and flown to New York for a whirlwind photoshoot, complete with celebrity hair and makeup teams, and world renowned photographer. And all this happened almost two months ago…do you have any idea how hard it’s been to keep this secret?!?!

  2. SO! MUCH! FUN! You are DARLING in the pictures, and I CANNOT WAIT to pick up the issue! Would it be weird for me to frame it and keep it on my bedside table? I'm thinking you should blow it up on canvas and put it above your fireplace.

  48. I went to Books a Million last night and bought the September issues of In Style, Harper's Bazaar and Redbook. My 11 year old daughter asked why I bought so many magazines and I told her that IS and HB were the BIG fall issues and that my friend Cassie was in the RB. She thinks for a minute and says I don't have any friends named Cassie. So I had to explain to her that I most certainly do its just that she lives in Texas and I follow her blog and she is darling and I'm sure we'd be BFFs! Congrats!

    Hi Cassie,

    I really like the Trina Turk skirt you're wearing on pg. 64 (dark floral print) but I can't seem to find it online….do you have a link for that? I have been on the TT website and nothing looks quite like it.

    Thanks a ton, Sarah
