I have something to tell you.
I have an article in the current issue of Somerset Life Magazine!
I was feeling like it wasn’t really going to happen. Like something would fall through. Like it wasn’t for real, maybe I just dreamt the whole thing. Why should I be in a magazine as beautiful as Somerset Life?
But I looked inside and there it was! My words and pictures in print!
I’ll even share my dweeb moment with you. While at Barnes & Noble I decided to buy the girls a little treat (they liked the looks of the m&m blondie) and a water along with my magazine and when I went to pay, the cashier was looking the magazine over while waiting for my card and I said, “I’m IN that!” She was like, “…oh, mmm hm.” So I went a step further and opened it up and held it up blocking her view from anything else and said, “See? That’s me!” (With a mouth wide open and eyes round as saucers to really geek her out completely.) She smiled and gave me a little, “wow,” as I took the ceramic mugs away from the girls who had grabbed them up from the display in front of the register and were about to drop them on the ground. Then I clumsily strolled my babies away, bumping that huge unruly stroller into a nearby table. But I didn’t care. I had just bought a pretty magazine with my own stuff in it. And my stuff added to the pretty. Oh, happy day.
So anyway, I’d now like to give you my thank-you speech: I’d like to thank all of the little people (you know who you are) for making me feel like a star. Now that I’m, like, almost as big as C Jane and stuff, I’m sure I’ll be speaking at lots of important blogging events in the near future. If any of my adoring fans are dying to witness my greatness in person, just be patient: there’s enough of me to go around. But just barely.
No, but really, part of what the article is about is how awesome this little bloggy tribe is. How I feel like I have really found a sense of community. I feel wrapped up in support here, and it’s a safe place for me to be myself. What a gift! I love you guys!
