Okay, Breathe Lesli …..Breathe..
I have some seriously exciting NEWS.
(no, I am not pregnant , lets just get that out of the way)
So, about 3 months ago I got an email from a guy named
House Beautiful magazine.
Yes, HOUSE BEAUTIFUL MAGAZINE!!!
THE House Beautiful Magazine
Apparently they had liked a photo, this one,
I had posted on facebook,
in response for a request for photos of
Big impact easy makeovers.
I had to sign a release form and send more photos.
Max told me that I might be in the JUNE 2012 issue.
I sent him all of the required documentation…
and then I waited….
March. April. May.
I did not tell many people because
I did not want to jinx it…
… I think I wanted it too bad and I was worried about putting it out there and then nothing happening.
so I went about my life and tried to forget about it.
But as June drew near, and I knew the issue was coming soon
I began to get excited and scared at the same time.
and I waited…and waited and waited.
beginning on about the 15th when my subscriptions usually begin to trickle in…
I checked my mailbox every day…
…and even went to the grocery store daily
to see if maybe they had gotten their new issues before me.
Can you say “obsessed”!
Finally today, after I had already checked the mail…nothing…
and Barnes and Noble (Nada again) during Cooper’s soccer practice
I had resolved that today would not be the day…
I stopped on the way home and
ran into the market to grab some things for dinner.
and on my way to the cheese section
I glanced over and
THERE is was!!!
…the NEW issue.
…The JUNE 2012 issue.
The issue my buddy Max said I “Might” be in.
…so, of course, I bought it…
…and brought it home.
I was afraid to open it…
I made myself get dinner all ready…
and take my son for his hair cut…
…before I would sit down and look at it.
I was procrastinating…
I was slowly becoming certain I was NOT in it.
FINALLY I opened the issue.
….when I got to this page…I almost pulled it out because
I thought it was a Advertisement..
But I paused when I spied with my little eye…
something familiar …
peeking through the heart on the left…
I opened the page…and there,
Its my living room!!!!
My collection of House Beautiful Magazine
ironically is kept in the pink cabinet!
and now I will add one more!!!
oh, there is more to say…
so much more “I CAN’T BELIEVE it!” to do,
I am still so high on cloud nine..
.but I must go to sleep…the weekend of tag team parenting begins,
I am going to Maryland with My daughter for a tournament
while my husband goes to Richmond for Cooper’s.
It is supposed to be brutally hot.
But I know what I will fan myself with…
Have a Wonderful, Beautiful and Safe Memorial day Weekend.
Summer is right around the corner!!!
