Me In Redbook Magazine! No Kidding!

Yes, it's true, I've been interviewed for an article to be published in an upcoming issue of Redbook Magazine.

Made my jaw drop to open that email asking if I would be interested in telling my story of becoming a first-time mom at the age of 45.  I mean seriously,  is it that rare? Maybe it is.

Just goes to show you never know who is going to find you doing a simple Google search and then fire off an email to you.  And here I thought I attracted enough attention just staying inside minding my own business.  You can read about news crews showing up at my door on two occasions here and here.

And believe it or not, Redbook is not the first magazine to contact me.  Someone representing another magazine showed up at our front door a few years ago asking to photograph our house.  I haven't written about that one yet but it's coming.

And in case you're wondering where my giveaway is today, I've decided to make a few changes around here.  After giving it a lot of thought, I've decided to resume posting some of the personal stuff too.  Anything that makes me laugh or want to let off steam.  I will still be doing the giveaways but I will be cutting those back to 1 or 2 per week and focusing on luxury!

So there you have it.  I'm on my way back to "Business as Usual" on my blog and I don't care "Who" reads it.
