Today was the photo shoot for the back book cover. I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to portray myself as this is the first impression many readers will have of me. Of course one picture doesn't convey to a stranger exactly who Kathie Truitt is as a person, but as the saying goes 'one picture is worth a thousand words.'
Don't let that serious face fool you for one minute, though. (This is a dark story so I was instructed not to smile). Inside I was bubbling over with happiness and excitement at the way God has taken the most horrific time of my existence and molded it into a wonderful, exciting, fantastic opportunity of a lifetime. But, then again why should I be surprised? Isn't that just like Him?
So, in a nutshell what you see above is what you get. Yeah, I can wear a suit and high heels just like everyone else, but that's not really me. I am still that casual, free-spirited, down-to-earth, fun-loving girl that I was at 17 that loves t-shirts, boots (cowboy/wellies) and jeans. I may never get to live in the country again, but the country will always live in me and I hope this picture reveals some of that.
Many thanks to Joe Cereghino, who is the officially the new Hillbilly Debutante photographer.
Until next time,
