Seeing yourself in a magazine is exciting and embarrassing all at once. You want to see it, but you don't want to see it. Then, you look at it with your eyes kind of squinty..afraid to open them all the way, just hoping you look okay! If you actually look good, then you hope other people will see it too! If not, you hope for very low sales and a quick exit of the grocery store shelves. Over time, you check it periodically, you breathe out and figure in 15 years, you'll think it looks "not that bad after all..."
In the end, I was more than pleased with the pictures and was even more pleased that the magazine put me on the same page as Leonardo Di Caprio!!!!!! Not bad for a girl from a small town like Upland, CA.
Thank you Inland Empire Magazine http://www.inlandempiremagazine.com/, Aubrey Noelle, Kimberly Saxelby, and Leo Di Caprio (whom I have never met, but might someday...you never know...)
Here's a look at the final spread:
