Exciting News + A Giveaway!

"Success [comes] unexpected[ly] in common hours." - Henry David Thoreau

You've waited. You've been so patient! And now you get to hear our exciting news. No, it's not a 4th baby . . . (sorry, but not sorry). One of my photographs was chosen to be the cover of an Elementary School textbook in Belgium 🇧🇪! I know, CRAZY right?!

This photo to be precise:

Wait. . . How did that happen?

Honestly, I have no idea. I randomly received this email:

I'm getting published.jpg


Dear Madam

I’m an editor at die Keure, a Belgian publishing house specialised in schoolbooks. In the summer of 2018 one of our new books, BOON, will appear: a Dutch textbook for 1th grade students. The book will only be used in Flanders (Belgium) and will only reach a small market (the first print-run will be 500 copies). 
The author of this (text)book would like to include the photo 'Little girl holding ice cream cone with sprinkles' published on October 22, 2017.

Would you be so kind as to inform us about the conditions to use this fragment?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards, 

Let's Celebrate!
