Darling Magazine: Publication!

Darling Magazine: Publication!

So I'm just a little bit giddy over this... Darling is my favorite magazine and I just swoon over the photography in it. I added "get published by Darling" on my list of goals a few months ago, then quickly crossed it out because I didn't want to disappoint myself by not reaching that goal. But lo-and-behold, they had a summer photo submission, which I eagerly took advantage of, and my photo was published!! Ok, so the photo is small, but it's something! Goal achieved + first print publication = very happy Tara. Here it is...
