My first "publication"!!

Today was an average day.  I started the day like every other.  Make sure the kids eat, get dressed and get out the door.  Run to my Moms house so that she can take my boys to the movies and I can make returns.  After hitting up Target for some new storage bins, I took my Mom and the boys out to lunch. 

Then we all drove home.  A totally average day.

I walked in the house and saw a package on the counter with my name on it.  The second I saw the return address I got giddy.  Earlier in the year I had taken photographs of a woman that was writing a book geared for children.  She had been following my blog and wanted me to take her book jacket photo.  Of course I jumped at the opportunity. 

The brown paper packaging laid on the floor and I screeched!! I ran to my husband to show him my name next to her image. My first official mention in a real publication.  (insert me doing the running man happy dance!!)

Jennifer's book The Write Start - A Guide to Nurturing Writing at Every Stage, from Scribbling to Forming Letters and Writing Stories is fabulous.  I am actually going to do one of the activities with my "Speller" tomorrow and paint one of the basement walls in chalkboard paint.  There are writing ideas in it for traveling with kids, to have your kids make your own autographh book, how to pretend to be a private eye, etc.  The book is so adorable.   Oh, and Jennifer also writes an amazing blog called The Write Start.

Thank you so much Jennifer for this entire experience. I wish you uber amounts of success and joy with the book! :)  (and your card made me beam the entire day!)

Jennifer's book!
