Please join me on this Monday in doing the happy acceptance dance.

After years of submitting poetry, my first poem has been accepted by a literary magazine.

The success is that much more sweet because I am sharing the honor with my husband, Tim. You see the poem that was accepted is a collaborative piece written by Tim and I.

We have been both submitting poetry for awhile and have always joked about how the other might take it when the first acceptance letter came.

So now we share the victory in our 12th year of marriage! Cheers, love!
