I'm Loving It

OH...MY....GOSH am I happy that it is Friday! This week has been all kinds of busy and crazy so I am ready to let loose this weekend!
This week I am VERY VERY VERY happy to announce something that I have been working on for a while now. In December I was approached about writing an entertaining column for our local magazine, the Gadsden Style. I was of course thrilled and accepted! Who knew this ole blog of mine would land me such an opportunity!! I showed you a sneak peek a few weeks ago of my photo shoot and this week the magazine finally arrived!!

I am SO proud of it, if I do say so myself. The article was entitled "(Don't) Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, and it went through the steps of planning a dinner party using the 5 W's (who, what, where, when, why). I already have my articles lines up for the next 2 issues and I cannot wait to dive back into writing! Writing for the magazine was an absolute blast and exactly what I have always wanted to do. Writing has always been my passion and I am so honored to have the opportunity to get to do it, both on the blog and for the magazine. Thank you to Cyndi and Marc and Gadsden Style for teaching me all about being both a magazine writer (it is much different that legal writing or blog writing, I can tell you that) and a model (it isn't as easy as my sister makes it look) and for believing that I could actually do this! I am so excited to continue working with you and to see where we can take the column from here! (I refer to it as my "column" just like Carrie Bradshaw does--I think it makes me sound legit).
Happy weekend sweet friends, and thank you for all of your support! Your excitement makes me smile! My article isn't on the Gadsden Style website yet but will be in about a month. When it is, I will let you know so you can read it if you so desire!

    That is something that is on my list of "goals" so it is sooooo exciting when I see someone else accomplish it.
    It just makes me feel like I've been standing in line and the line is moving. ;)
