I had quite a memorable day yesterday! Not only was it my 36th wedding anniversary, it was the day I gave my first ever television interview. The interview was not scheduled until Monday afternoon, so I didn’t have time to get nervous about it – especially since I had a good bit of house cleaning to do. I had just arrived home Sunday night after being away since Thursday for the Forever Retreat in Bloomington, MN, so I had spent most of the day Monday playing catch up – replying to emails, taking care of membership issues, and answering questions about our first ever 10% off annual membership sale – nothing like hearing TV cameras are coming to make you tidy up! Thankfully, Crockett was still at his home away from home due to a miscommunication, so I didn’t have to worry about him stealing the show.
I had no idea what to expect – huge cameras, a big crew, hair and makeup? Umm, no. An attractive young woman, Kaitlin McCulley, knocked on my door promptly at noon. She carried a big tripod with a small camera mounted on it, and she was alone. She was the producer, the interviewer, the cameraman, the reporter, the driver, the sound person, and the editor. Color me impressed! She was so personable and nice – just like she appears on camera – and she made me feel completely at ease. Truly, it was easy to forget there was a camera and just talk to her like she was a friend visiting me. To top it off, she never rushed me or acted impatient, even though I talked a lot and she knew she had a looming deadline. Somehow, even though she left my house at 1:30 and had an hour drive (or more) back to Houston, there I was, watching my spot at 4:45 yesterday afternoon! That is some kind of talent!!
In case you haven’t seen it yet, HERE is my moment in the spotlight – video and all! Feel free to share it, especially with your non-scrapping friends. Share the digi love!
Soon after Kaitlin left, Crockett came home and we had a joyful reunion. Then Rex came home to fetch me and take me out to our favorite fancy place on the Island, Rudy and Paco. In Galveston, ‘fancy’ means ‘no shorts’, but R&P is truly delicious dining! Somehow (thanks to Rex’s awesome assistant, Debbie) they knew it was our anniversary, so we got lots of special treatment and a scrumptious dessert.
It was a sweet end to a fabulous day! Here’s to many more years of marriage and of pixels2Pages! And back to life out of the spotlight…
