I was not in Vogue for my fashion sense.
I have always liked fashion magazines.
I strive to look okay on a daily basis.
Okay does not = Vogue(ish) fashion sense.
Anyway, I randomly received a 3 year subscription to Vogue a few years back.
I would casually read it(who am i kidding? I just looked at the pictures).
But right after the Gov. Sanford scandal here in SC, Vogue interviewed Jenny Sanford about the whole situation.
The article was entitled Notes on a Scandal.
I read it.
And I was so taken back with her response(in a good way) that for the first time ever I “wrote to the editor” via email.
Two weeks later, I received an email from the editor’s assistant asking if I minded if they included my letter in their magazine.
My jaw dropped.
And then I responded that of course I didn’t mind if they used my letter. :)
Sure enough the next month there was my name in bold letters in Vogue Magazine December 2009.
It made my year, literally.
And I know there are lots of different opinions on the Sanford situation.
But you don’t have to agree with me.
It’s a free country, thankfully.
