I'm in Print



Some weekend fun: I wrote a little article and it was published in a super-fun local bridal magazine, Veils and Vows.

You can find my article here.

Sarah's wedding was featured in this issue, too!

Jackpot.

  14. Woot, woot!
    p.s. That is without a doubt my favorite photo that has ever graced the pages of your blog. It needs to be a huge canvas. Or wallpaper.
    It's gorgeous. And sweet.

  15. Oh my goodness gracious a livin. I just picked up my copy last night at the local CVS and hadn't even opened it up yet. Well I can tell you I just did. On page 7 it says Contributing Writers, and the first name up 'Shannan Martin.' Yes there you are. Of course I have read, and loved it. Go Shannan, Go Shannan, Go Shannan.
    ~G~I look at the photo above, and have made a promise to self, "take a new photo of Emily and me, together, hugging!"

  17. 1. Congrats on being "in print"! I LOVE how you can take any subject matter and inject your own voice into it! I feel like I could have read that without seeing the author's name at the top and say "This must be Shannan!"
    2. That wedding - the color of the bridesmaid's dresses - that photo of sweet Ruby in that white dress hugging you - the setting - the his & hers viewpoints in Sarah's article....*huge sigh*....just beautiful!!!!

  18. First of all, congratulations on being in print! Huge and awesome. But, I am not surprised. You have a gift. :)
    Second, that picture of you and the sweet girl. Please tell me you have it enlarged and displayed somewhere for the whole world to see. If I could insert one of my girls there, that would be great. I'll just pretend the bod is mine! :)

  19. I am excited for you : )
    Can't wait to go and read it.
    I sent you the dandelion because I couldn't get it to upload to my printer : )
    So check your junk mail. Sometimes email from me shows up as junk.

  21. What a lovely little article...congrats, and good for you!

  22. Wonderful article! Congrats to you!

    I smiled at the mention of hot pink taffeta! I was one of the lucky ones who was able to wear pink taffeta back in 1992 as a bridesmaid for my sister-in-law! I kept it for years thinking I'd somehow reuse it or restyle it...never happened. But it was her day and her vision and it was lovely. It's always embarrassing as my nieces and nephews get older and ask about my big hair "What was up with your hair?" Me: "I know this is hard to believe, but I swear to you, at the time, I thought my hair had never looked better!" It's huge. And scary.

    Way to go! :-)

  25. Well, I have been anxiously looking for it to appear online all week! Thanks for letting me know! I agree with everyone's sentiments about your article. It was wonderfully written! And I'm glad you approved of my approach and the final choice! R's mom called last night (I mailed her a copy) and she said what a wonderful job you did on the article. So props all around (of course Glo loved it dearly as she loves you!). :)

  28. Even better in print. :) And I can attest to the swooniness and pocketfullness of said dress.

    Looking forward to attending your book signing someday. :)
