Southern Weddings

If I tried to explain to you what the next week holds for us, your head would fall right off.  And we really don’t want that. We like you : )  I will tell you that we are sending our print issue to the printer this week.  WOW.  I have to admit tearing up as I type this.  Tears of joy that the 2+ years we’ve been working on this magazine is about to reach another milestone.  It has been a looong road and I couldn’t be more proud, grateful, and just in awe of what the SW gals have done together during this time.  Danielle and I started this crazy project many moons ago and never thought it would blossom into what it has today.  It’s all because of YOU.  You, dear readers, are why we are able to even go through this crazy week we are about to experience.  And it’s just the beginning…. 

So, in honor of our week ahead, we are having a long-overdue photo contest.  OK, TWO contests, because that’s just how we roll.  You know we like to give a lot of stuff away and you know we love surprises!  So, we’re not telling you the prize this time.  Yeah, that’s right.  Don’t even try to sweet talk us.  (unless you have dots (my fav), chocolate covered anything (rach’s fav), peppermint patties (Laura’s fav), or mac n’ cheese (kirstin’s fav))

Photo contest 1: Send us a pic of you having fun, happy, joyous, bubbling over with laughter…  whatever floats your boat.

Photo contest 2: In the spirit of Thanksgiving, send us a pic of what you are thankful for… could be anything… person, place, thing.  Get creative.

Rules: These must be your pics.  Don’t steal someone else’s unless you have express permission to do so.  Extra points for iPhone pics, camera phone pics and anything that isn’t edited.  But, feel free to get creative and do whatever you want to the pics.

Contest ends next Tuesday the 25th. email {win at swsmag dot com} with your entries.  Max of 5 per person.  Try not to send us too high res files.  Our mailboxes don’t like it.

Is anyone else as excited about the Mammoth Men trip as I am?  Some of our favorite photographers are getting on a bus in about 24hours for the ultimate man trip.  And you can be a part of it!  Last time, the Mammoth Men let blog readers vote on their activities.  We love these guys and can’t wait to follow their goofy crazy travels next week.  You can follow along on twitter too. Mark Brooke and Michael Chan will also be joining this wildly talented group…

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen this video.  But, I have to admit watching it about 10 times.  It never ceases to make me laugh until my sides hurt.  We are so thankful for all of the blog love we have gotten lately and can’t tell you how much it means to us!  One very special post this week from the A Bryan Photo guys caught our attention so we just had to share the laughs…  Enjoy!
