publication part 2

Eeeek!

My June issue of Creating Keepsakes mag came in the mail today! Know what that means? I get to view my words, published in a REAL magazine for the first time EVAH. EVAH!!

And I totally forgot to be excited about it at first. We had a long day of playing and errands, and E and I both crashed at 3 when we got home. I checked the mail, smiled at the magazine (excited to have something new to finger through) but resigned to go to sleep and read the mag later. It didn't even occur to me this was THE ONE. I was tooooo tired to care.

Then, when I grabbed the magazine on my way to the kitchen to fix dinner, it hit me. "OH MY GOD ELEANA! This is IT!" Then, when I found the page I'm on, I realized they not only published an edited version of my story (which was SO long at first) but they also included a blurb from my letter to the editor as a focal point for the article! WOOP WOOP!

Click for big

Yeah, The quotes that say "Nichole, VA" and have clearly had the last name and city whited out are MINE.

I'm so excited, and ever thankful they chose something from me. Next on my to-do list for fame (haha!): publish a LO!
