Friday Light : Highlight

Friday Light : Highlight

The other day on a let’s finally use our gift card and pick up some summer reading trip to Barnes & Noble, I made the kids go on a Better Homes and Gardens Magazine hunt with me. We were all giddy to be in a crowded store where we could open up to page 22 and see…me! We we’re giggling and looking around and then looking at the page and around again like we had this secret to keep, that we obviously really wanted to share. And then, I took out my camera and started a mini photo shoot of the issue. That’s about the time the excitement wore off for the kids and they were asking what magazines they could buy. But for me, moments like that and honors like this never ever get old. 

I am beyond delighted to be featured in the June issue of Better Homes and Gardens as their blogger of the month. Insert happy dance here.

Perhaps one of the things that has tickled me the most about the whole thing is that my feature is on the page that reads Game On! Indeed! I mean seriously, it just doesn’t get better than that.

If you’ve got a highlight to share please share it here! I love celebrating among friends!

    I was in my local Albertson’s Market and had almost given up hope of finding my Super Blogger Girl when there you were!!
    I had that OMG thats my baby all grown up and in Better Homes and Gardens feeling… I had to share my excitement with the
    market checker and he very graciously showed great enthusiasm as well! High Fives All Around!
    Now Let the Games Begin!

    I did my own little happy dance when you (ala Shutter Sisters) featured another of my photos for the 365 section of the site. It was my mom holding my daughter for one of her first dips in a pool. Thanks for the opportunity and congratulation on your own cause for celebration! Certainly toast-worthy!

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cow, I wish I still subscribed. I’d be hauling your photo all around town shouting from the rooftops. Wahoo for you. I adore Better Homes & Gardens, and I adore you, so it’s a win + win scenario.

    Go you.
