It’s funny sometimes, how things work out. As I mentioned in my Monday blog post, months ago I was contacted by an editor at The Old Farmer’s Almanac, asking permission to use my photo of a glass light shade in an upcoming spring garden publication.
When the early March release date arrived, I started looking for the magazine. And I looked everywhere. I even looked in Hawaii when we were there over spring break. And nothing. I figured I was destined to never know if my picture had actually been included.
And then yesterday, my husband and I were at Safeway picking up a few items. I was holding a gallon of milk and a dozen eggs. And standing there, in the checkout line, I just happened to look to my left. And just like that, there it was!
The conveyor belt was crowded with the items from the customer ahead of us, but I managed to make room for the milk and eggs, take a copy of the magazine from it’s holder, and begin to search for my picture. With each passing page, my heart started to sink. I laughed it off. Just because I was asked didn’t mean they would really use it, I told myself. And then, on the last page of the article where I expected it to be, I saw it-my photo!
So thanks for bearing with me while I crow about this, but I was pretty excited!
Anyone want my autograph? (I am totally kidding!)
Seriously, thanks for your offers to look for the magazine for me-I appreciate it!! :)
