Taste of Home Field Editor

Ok, I know I told you I'd do the DC trip recap, but first I have to show you this!

Last Christmas my Aunt Annie got me a subscription to Taste of Home magazine. After a couple issues, I applied to be a Field Editor and was accepted. My name has been printed in the magazine for a good 6 months, much to my amusement.

Well, early October an editor emailed me and asked my permission to use me as a spotlighted editor to be printed in an upcoming issue! I was so excited, I screamed for Johnny, we gushed for a few minutes, and then I decided to keep it a secret!

She wasn't sure which issue it'd make it into, but sent me a little preview of what they'd say and asked to use my photo. Yesterday when we received all of our held mail I not only had the new issue, but a separate envelope with a complimentary copy and letter of congratulations, letting me know which page I was on!

I'm so excited it made it into the Dec/Jan 2010 issue! If you guys receive the magazine, or spot it at the store, it's this one:

And then when you flip to page 8, you should see:


Ahhh I'm so excited! Thank you guys for following me and being a part of Dinner at Christina's. My life is completely different now than it was a year ago!
