this takes the cake

January 19, 2012

and I mean the whole cake- 
or the scrumptious slice above.

 So, there is this really amazing professor-
her name is Sarah. 
 She's a super photographer
 with amazing dogs
 and she's got killer style. 
 She also writes for a magazine called Modern Ink-
an eclectic variety of inspiration, I naturally fell in love with. 

one day she was like, 
"you should totally submit your lunchbox pics to modern ink"
and I was like, 
 "you made my whole new year"
 dork, right?
 I'm lucky enough for her to even have that idea-
so I followed up with it and it wasn't but a couple of weeks later
 that she messaged me back telling me that...

 remember that good news?
 I have the go ahead to let you guys in on it 
 & I am so excited to be able to share.

 I am going to be featured in the 
February issue of Modern Ink Magazine!
say what?
yes sir!

 We have a photo shoot planned where the kids and I will be making a special treat! 
and later this week we will be picking the lunches 
which will be chosen to go with the article.
I am seriously- well honestly, 
 I can't even put into words how grateful I am for this opportunity
 and how amazing it is to be noticed for something I love to do. 
the best part is sharing this with you guys. 
 I remember how much you all supported my idea's
 and inspired me to document & post Adriana's lunches.
plus, it's a February issue, Valentine's Day is one of our favorite holidays
 and I couldn't be happier.
