Yesterday was a big day for me. My first ever published article came out in the Globe & Mail (see it online here)! It is the first in a 5-article series I am writing for them all about our renovation. Can you believe it?! Me. In the Globe & Mail?! [For any readers who aren’t familiar with the Globe & Mail, it is the most read newspaper in Canada]
Yesterday morning, after dropping Maya off at daycare, I went out, bought three copies of the paper, and took myself out for a celebratory latte at my local coffee shop. It was a real trip to see my own name staring back at me in a paper I read all the time.
Even though I have written this blog for years, I have never considered myself a writer (and still don’t) – it’s just the vehicle by which I share this little world of mine and connect with all of you. So seeing an article in a newspaper written by me (and in a prestigious newspaper I love to read no less) does feel all kinds of strange. In a great way, though.
Leave it to me to dork it up a little… (pssst – countertop sneak peak)
The next four articles are going to be focusing on different areas of the house. You can bet that it has given me a serious kick in the butt to get things finished around here! I’m unsure exactly when each article will come out, but I’ll keep you guys posted.
And in case I don’t say it enough, thank you for stopping by this little corner of the internet. I always appreciate you guys reading, commenting, telling me about your own renovations/DIY projects/family life/etc, and just being a friend. xoxo, gemma
