I had one of those experiences, big time, today! My picture is on the December cover of BEEF Magazine, one of the best, most recognized livestock magazines in America. Uh yeah, I am doing backflips of joy...in my mind : )

Now don't get me wrong, I was pretty stoked when they asked about the photo, after seeing it right here on the blog. I was also nervous. I sent off a small version, and later a larger image when they approved it. But, it was more like work then, just emailing pictures here and there.
However, when I saw it on my Facebook feed about an hour ago, it definitely sunk it!
I had the same experience when BEEF published the first article I wrote for them. I am so very blessed to have a job that makes me so happy, and excited, with each step forward.
If you don't know about BEEF, by gosh you should : ) Here is their website, and Facebook Page. They cover a huge number of topics relevant to beef production, and if you like cattle photos, they keep an online archive of past covers.
