from MY pen: June issue of Romantic Homes
A couple of posts ago, I hinted about being in an upcoming magazine but was too excited/nervous about spilling any beans just in case it didn't appear (ever get like that?). It's the June issue of Romantic Homes. I subscribe and was calculating that the issue might arrive in about a week or two but it came TODAY!!!
My heart is racing!
This is my first published essay. It's titled, De-Stressing by Distressing: A Mom Embraces Cottage Style. I am thrilled about the two-page layout with an illustration! So funny because without ever seeing my sons, the artist Danijela Dobric gave the boys in her drawing light and dark hair, which is true of my boys. I haven't even read my article in print yet! Too excited.
Okay, time to calm down and enjoy the rest of the issue. Well, maybe I'll just stare at pages 76-77 a little longer . . . I hope this post makes sense!
