This week has been a special one in many ways.  I spent two wonderful nights with some of my best friends – Wednesday with Micah, and Thursday with Vero.  They both made me dinner (I owe them each countless homemade meals!)… it is one of my favorite things in the world to watch them create in the kitchen.  They each have very individual styles – Micah made us some cafe style toasted turkey sandwiches on three seed bread with avocado, bacon and cheddar, while Vero made some homemade veggies with her special top-secret spices, dressings and mole (with Belgium chocolate).  Both were amazing treats!  I am so very lucky to have them both.  They are the definition of unconditional love.

The other big thing that happened this week was… being on the cover of a magazine!!  There are no words to describe the feeling of seeing a photo of yourself on something that you read all the time.  It is for a fun publication called B-Metro, a Birmingham metro mag.  When I was first telling them about making Bubble a month or two back, we had no idea that it would turn into a feature story.  Even cooler yet, it’s part of the Women’s Power issue amongst some pretty great company.  To say that I am extraordinarily thrilled and humbled would be a major understatement.  I think this is a huge stepping stone amongst many for Bubble as it starts out on it’s journey into the world.  Pretty soon we are going to be able to see our first rough cut, which will be so very exciting.  We decided to push back our pick-ups until June 1st, as to better target the shots we need most.  More on that soon as it gets closer.

This weekend I look forward to celebrating my mom, and all of the other wonderful moms in my life.  I was given a mother that is accepting, encouraging and loving.  No doubt I wouldn’t have the confidence and spirit I have without her in my life.  I hope she knows how much she is appreciated and adored.  Happy Mother’s Day to all of you out there!
