Before I say anything more, let me just say I am having an absolutely awful day (actually the last week has been a bit yucky). It started when Andrew's grandmother past away this past weekend. He traveled back home to Australia and I couldn't go with him. So everything seems a bit more intense without him here. I'm sure any and all of my circumstances could be cured with a little snuggle.
Well, our scanner doesn't work (as I mentioned earlier this week) and it is causing me a lot of stress and Canon isn't being terribly helpful. My self timer for the polaroid died, which makes it very difficult to finish a project I am working on for Erin. My .mac site is not working so I cannot send or receive emails from that account and I only had to wait on hold for an hour and twenty minutes to find that out (and no, we don't have a speaker phone, and yes, my ear hurts). I usually try not to dwell on any of this, but it has been tough. There actually are a lot of great things happening, too, they just seem a bit overshadowed today.
Now, about this post's title. I wanted to tell you a while ago that I shot something for Real Simple Magazine. I was so excited, but I didn't want to say anything until the issue came out. I love that magazine and I love the girls that work at that magazine, so I was thrilled when they asked me. The first issue that I shot for them came in the mail today (August 2008) and although super excited to see my name, I was a bit sad about the image. It got, well, cropped. I know that happens, a lot. Not a big deal, but I thought at least I have an outlet here to show the shot in it's entirety, because I thought it was pretty cute. Fingers crossed that the next one squeezes itself onto the pages of the September issue.
Oh, and did I mention I'm on a diet. I picked a bad, bad week to go on a diet.
ps. this looks great
and THANK YOU for everyone who either posted about my small magazine shoot or replied directly to me. It's going to be amazing!!
