i've been published!

i am thrilled to announce, that one of my photos and an interview has been published!
yep, like in a real magazine!
see it sitting right there.
yesterday, one of my bloggy friends from california (thanks Karen!) informed me that she had spotted the piece in a magazine.....and she wondered why i had not announced it....well, cause i did not know it was out yet and kinda forgot about it too.....
so, Mr. dan and i ran right out and tracked down our copy (o.k. copy(s)) .... at the second store we tried.... we excitedly stood in the magazine aisle at Kroger and quickly thumbed through until we found my photo...and there it was!!  how fun for us.....for me!
he said he was "proud" of me...i think i will keep him.

here is the photo they used.
and here is the original post about my "aqua christmas decor"....here.
unfortunately, one of the photos was omitted.....not sure why....because it was THE photo that sent the magazine to my blog post in the first place....something they had seen on pinterest (i think, not sure).

so....here is that photo....the one that was omitted.....actually, it looks like there is a space for it in the lower left of the article.....so maybe it was the wrong size or something.....anyhooo....
it is o.k.
i am super excited about this.....
 as i have secretly wished to be published in a magazine some day.
and now i have.
yay for me!
toot toot.

thanks "vintage holiday" magazine!!

p.s.  not sure why the article was titled "christmas by the bay"...cause i do not live by a bay.....
the magazine's artistic license, i guess.
p.p.s  i would like to live near a bay though....that would be cool.
