I have news. It’s B I G news. I know what you’re thinking, and no, it’s not a date. That wouldn’t be big news – that would require me to take an aspirin and lie down until I felt better.
I’ve sat on this for almost a week now, because it felt weird making such a proclamation on here, so publicly. I don’t know why I am so nervous. Then I considered that really it was no different to announcing, “Hey! I got a new job!” or “Gosh! I won a trip to Rio!” or even “We’re pregnant!!”. Truth be told I have no idea what it would be like to announce the last two, but I think you get my point. They’re just all part of life’s rich tapestry of events and opportunities and bright spots that you want to share.
So. I’m going to go there. Can you keep a secret? Microsoft chose one of my images to be in the Windows 8 lockscreen. ONE OF MY IMAGES WAS CHOSEN TO BE IN THE WINDOWS 8 LOCKSCREEN!!!!!!!!!!!! OK, you’re right – that was probably one too many exclamation points. You realize my image will be seen by a *billion* people. Well, give or take a few. Someone please pinch me. SOMEONE PINCH ME!!!
After all the whoopin’ and hollerin’ and dancing around the kitchen was done with, I made a frittata. It seemed like exactly the right thing to do in the moment.
