I got picked!!!

Y’all.  Y’ALL! I’m so excited.  It’s 3:00 a.m., and I’m not even tired because I’m SO EXCITED! Ree Drummond (AKA – The Pioneer Woman) picked a photo I submitted for her photography assignment! SERIOUSLY!  It looks like there were about 12,000 photos submitted, and almost 90 chosen from that for the semi-finals.  I’m so honored!  Go ahead – click the link below to see for yourself. I’m the third one down…


I can’t stop looking at it!  This is one of my favorite photos I’ve taken since I started playing with photography a few months ago.  This was actually taken within the first month I had my camera!

There are professional photographers who put their photos in these contests! This is crazy.

There are so many awesome photos – I doubt I will be one of the finalists, let alone the winner.  I’m just so excited that my photo was chosen! I’m just barely starting out with this camera, so I’m totally excited about this.  I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep at all tonight…
