Secondly, I want to share something else exciting that happened last Wednesday, making one of the most rewarding days I've ever had as a blogger even better.
Last week, something I wrote got (wheeze) published. In a book, y'all. A book with a cover. And by cover, I mean an actual cover, not my usual one made of folded construction paper with staples in the crease.
Yes. My words and my name, in a book. This book.
In Miracles & Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Moms, fifty mothers -- from new moms to seasoned moms, one of them being, um, me (gulp) -- share their most memorable moments. From the hilarious to the heartbreaking, these stories reveal the depth of a mother's love and her delight at wearing the title of Mom.
Also featured in the book are stories by Sophie Hudson (BooMama) and Melanie Shankle (BigMama) and many other notable bloggers, authors and fellow moms with whom I'm delighted and humbled to share space.
(Listen y'all, to be honest, I was a little shocked when author Nancy Kennedy emailed to see if I'd contribute to the book, but I thought it best not to ask too many questions lest it be discovered that I'm, you know, me, while the rest of these women are actual writers and stuff.) (And lo and behold, the book's been published and no one is apparently the wiser, because I've checked a couple hundred times, and my piece is actually in there.) (Exhale.)
