By now the May issue is out, so you've seen the shot of me hiking. The weather that day was awful-dark, thick clouds, a blustery wind, and super cold air-but we didn't let that dampen our spirits! We all pulled together and tried to make the process as painless as possible. We drove to a pretty spot near my house and I walked the same path over and over again, stopping and smiling when I got in the photographer's frame. In between takes I'd run under an umbrella and try to warm back up. Luckily it didn't take too long-after an hour we had enough and got to call it a wrap. For those of you who've read it, what do you think of the May column?
