My Great Big Fun Exciting News!

April 5, 2014

And now, for the moment you’ve both been waiting for!!  I am finally ready to tell you about my great, big, fun, exciting news!

About 3 and 1/2 months ago I was on the blog Somewhat Simple looking around at some of their great recipes and crafts.  I clicked on the Meet the Team page and saw that they had several contributor spots to fill, one of which was for food.  I thought Oh, that would be fun.  Then I had to change a diaper and forgot about it.

A couple of weeks later I was back on Somewhat Simple and I saw that the contributor spots had still not been filled, and saw a link for information on joining the team.  I read the requirements, typed up a quick email, and sent it off.  Then forgot about it for a while.  In fact, I didn’t even think to tell anyone that I had applied.

I remembered my email a couple of times over the next couple of months, but since I hadn’t heard back, didn’t think much of it.  Then a few weeks ago I was checking my email, saw one from Steph at somewhat simple, and thought Oh, yeah!

I opened it and read this:

Out of over 200 applicants, I was chosen to contribute recipes to this awesome website put together by super talented women!!  I’m on a Creative Team!  Creative!  I used to think my creativity relied on whatever I could copy off Pinterest, or unassuming passersby. But I realized that I do love to create.  And I do it a lot.  So why not show some of my ideas to a larger audience than my kids and whoever hasn’t unfollowed me on Instagram (because I post a lot of pictures of food).  🙂   
I’m really excited about this neat opportunity!!  It will not, however, make me rich (it is unpaid) or famous (it is not my blog), but it will be a fun outlet to showcase some of my good ideas that I hope others will enjoy as well.  My first post is TODAY at 7:00 am.  CLICK HERE to check it out and let me know what you think!  And leave me comments.  And pin it.  Because I am actually kind of nervous to be on such a public platform.  But mostly, I am just excited!!  xoxo
