a secret...



I have a secret to share...

While on holiday I had the opportunity to meet someone whose work I have admired for many years. I've also had the honor of being a part of his beautiful magazines. I have to say.. it was a highlight of my trip and my summer (ok.. year) to meet Matthew Mead.

He and his wife Jenny met me for coffee at a great little bakery in Portsmouth, NH. They are really lovely. It was such a thrill to be able to sit and chat with both of them.

I have to admit, I was nervous. But my nerves were quickly settled as soon we started talking. They are so nice.

I was also a bit embarrassed as I had a few glitches that day in trying to connect with them. My cell phone ended up having absolutely no service in the US. As a result, I had spent part of the afternoon on a quest to find a pay phone. I'm sure you can imagine how successful that was! Note to self: buy a new cell phone (one from this decade!)

A big thank you to Matthew & Jenny for taking the time out of their crazy, busy schedules to meet with me. You are both very inspiring. I hope we meet again soon.

PS. I promise, I will share some photos from our trip to PEI this coming week. I'm still enjoying kicking back with my kids this weekend!
