In case you missed the HUGE news I shared recently on Instagram, here you go. I’m on the September issue of Redbook magazine!
This day was so surreal and I’m still in shock that it actually happened. A copy of the magazine is sitting on my coffee table (let’s be honest, pile of them) and every time I pass it, I do a double take. It’s really weird seeing yourself on a magazine cover! It’s mind-blowing!
I’m not going to spend hours writing a long play by play of what happened, because honestly, other than this video I put together below, I didn’t take many photos because I wanted to soak in the day and enjoy the present.
Without further delay, here’s a little behind the scenes footage from my day as a Real Women Style Awards winner:
I know I told you earlier that I’d spare you a long and heartfelt post, and I will. However, I will say this: I think it’s so cool that Redbook found 6 women across the country of all sizes, ages, and at different points in their lives to come together for this shoot. We may all be different, and this may sound cheesy, but there was a special bond created that day between all of us experiencing this together.
I’m super excited and proud to be part of this ever growing #RWSA family of amazing ladies. It was also an amazing feeling the day Redbook released the cover that past winners showed their support by reposting the photo and tagging all of us. I cannot WAIT to do this next year and welcome the new gals to the fam.
To everyone who has left comments, thank you for all of your overwhelming support and emojis. It was so incredibly exciting to finally be able to reveal my secret to you that I’d been holding in for months!
See more photos and go inside the issue here, or pick up a copy of your own September issue – on newsstands now. (I’ve been waiting forever to type that!)
