Today started out like any other day. I made the beds and sorted the laundry looking forward to what would certainly be the highlight - lunch with a friend. (OK, I also logged into Facebook and Twitter. I'm a mom but I do have my limits.)
I had a great time at lunch, so much so that I only checked my Blackberry once to see how much time I had left on the meter. It wasn't until I was walking out of the restaurant that I decided to check my updates. I thought I was dreaming as I read "Congratulations to Amelia..." In a million years I never thought that I would be fortunate enough to win the Sears Portrait Studio BlogHer '10 contest! I sat in the parking lot for 5 minutes checking and re-checking the Facebook post like a nut before I realized it was for real and that I wasn't imagining things.
I am incredibly grateful to Sears Portrait Studio and look forward to meeting all the women whose blogs I have been reading over the past year at BlogHer '10. I feel like a kid in a candy shop. So tonight I leave you with this line from Lou Reed's song. "Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you."
