Imagine my surprise when…

Posted by andrea in: Misc. life

It started in my Inbox this morning. The first emails came from my former workplace and from a high-school friend in Mississauga.

“Opened up my Reader’s Digest and almost fell on the floor. NICE PICTURE!!!”

Wha?

Ack!

It’s out already?

They were supposed to send me a copy!?! So without showering, brushing my teeth and having scarcely dressed myself I rushed down to the Britton’s in Westboro Village.

I swooped into the store:

DOYOUHAVETHENEWREADER’SDIGESTINEEDTOSEEITRIGHTNOW !

The fellow pointed to the display. I leapt. Lo and behold, there we were… pictured both in the table of contents and in full-page size full-colour about 50 pages in.

I have emailed this to almost everyone I know but I wanted to post it here too. The article is super. I am very pleased. And the photo of us ain’t half-bad either. [My original post about the photo shoot is here.]

Just think, it’s only Tuesday!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
