I'm in FOLK Magazine!

So I've been keeping this little secret since February and its been killing me...I submitted a story to Folk Magazine during the winter and found out my pictures from the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails would be included in Issue V of FOLK Magazine!

I didn't want to tell anybody in case something happened and my submission failed to make the final cut. Today, I went to the mail box and there was two copies of FOLK with MY pictures and editorial piece in it! I got two whole pages with seven pictures! Our dog Trixie even made it into the Southern issue.

Somebody please pinch me!

It was a dream to get to see the Texas Bluebonnets in person and a dream to one day have my work published in a magazine. I get to scratch two things off the bucket list now!

This is a picture from the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails this year.

We enjoy driving the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails and getting to see all the beautiful wildflowers in bloom during the spring. We returned this spring and took even more pictures. To me nothing says Texas like Bluebonnets and Longhorn Cattle.

To find out more about the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails you can visit their website.

To see more of my pictures from the Bluebonnets Trails, when I originally published them on my blog, please click here.

This issue of FOLK magazine can now be found at Barnes and Noble bookstores and independent bookstores across the country. Check out the FOLK blog to find locations near you.

(When the rest of my order arrives, I will be doing a give away of one issue on my blog!)

  4. Awesome!! I have always loved bluebonnets. My mama tried forever to get them to grow along the front of our property and beautify the highway....but they never took off. - Barbara
