We all sat on the couches downstairs; the girls on one and the boys on another. My brother and almost sister-in-law had come over so that the boys could watch the Badger game while Lanae and I gawked through wedding magazines to come up with ideas for their big day this summer! :) And then I spotted it. I had been waiting for it to hit news stands so that I could see my very own photo beaming in full color glory in a national magazine. Lanae had just bought it, hot off the press, the April issue of Brides magazine. I quickly (and quite rudely, I might add) whisked the magazine out her hand and exclaimed to the entire room that “IT WAS HERE!” The boys didn’t even notice, as the Badgers were about to loose the game, while I was beaming with a giant ear to ear smile! I frantically tore through each page of that magazine to spot my one photo.
Yes, only one photo. But I was so proud. I have never been in a nationally published magazine. Never. So this was a proud moment for me. I finally found it, after way too many page “whisks” as the boys “shhhh-ed” me for making too much noise during the game! :) There it was, on page 298….the photo I had been waiting to find! :) A beautiful photo of a pie table that Bethany had styled over a year ago at a shoot! YAY! I smiled to myself and showed it off proudly to both pugs, who were eagerly paying attention to my emotions! :)
So, I realize you have to put on reading glasses and squint to find my name placed in the “crack” of the magazine. But it’s there! :) And I’m so proud. A small photo in the lower left hand page on page 298 of Brides Magazine!
