Once in a while we will see what the world thinks of as a "celebrity". For me, they are just normal (sort of) people who happen to have jobs that put them in the magazines. I have never asked for an autograph or even said hello... What would I say? "I liked you in that movie" and then stand there like a dork? But then there are the "celebrities" that won't exactly make the gossip column, but are so much more interesting to me.
A while back when we were in Nashville we saw Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife at Target. They are famous people I am actually interested in meeting. Jason knew him from the band days, so we said hello. We found out they were having a date night and buying plastic bins. Adorable. So kind, warm, real and normal. Love them!So where am I going with this story?
Yesterday I was at the scrapbook store using the die cut machine.
When who strolls in to use the machine next to me? A real life celebrity (at least to me.) Stephanie Ackerman stopped in to cut a few things out. I couldn't believe it. I stalk her blog, heart her shop, love her magazine, have her stamps, and secretly wish I could doodle like her. (Seriously, look at how she writes a bible verse!)
She loves Jesus, her husband, her cool kids and spreads joy wherever she goes.
That is my kind of celebrity sighting.
