If you were one of the lucky souls who received my mug in your mailbox within the last few weeks, I apologize. It was only supposed to be a story, not a cover. I wasn’t prepared for that!
A few months back I was contacted by the editor of the magazine to give an interview about all things Making it With Stephany. From there, we came up with the idea to have me write an accompanying article about cocktails in the valley. That was a little scary for me, because if you read this blog, you know of my juvenile writing skillzz. But I interviewed, wrote, edited, saved, re-wrote and submitted my article (a little over my word count requirement) and on time.
A photo shoot was scheduled to run along side the article. Smiles were made, pictures were taken. I had a general idea of when the magazine would be out and I was excited to see my words in print.
Then I show up on the cover. Man, was that a weird feeling! I still feel shy about it, which is odd because I am usually not shy. You’ve seen the videos, right?!?
Thank you to Kersten and St. Croix Valley Magazine for taking the time to get to know a little more about me.
