Reese Witherspoon and My Fan Girl Moment

Reese Witherspoon and My Fan Girl Moment

(Top Photo Cred:  Reese Witherspoon's Instagram account)  I read with a lot of online book clubs throughout the Instagram community, one of which is spear headed by the fabulous Reese Witherspoon.  I have loved her ever since she filmed Man In The Moon in my hometown and I know all the words to Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama.  I have enjoyed watching her career as she has grown in to a force to be reckoned with, speaking up for womens rights through the #MeToo movement and changing the game in Hollywood with her production company, Hello Sunshine.  The fact that she is a HUGE bookworm is icing on the cake for me.  I try to read her selections as often as possible and for May, she picked Curtis Sittenfeld's You Think It, I'll Say It.  We had just welcomed Huck in to our family and he was 5 pounds of puppy goodness and I thought it would be adorable if I could get him in a picture with Sittenfeld's book for Instagram.  Well he obliged, and I decided to post it to Instagram and tag Reese's book club.  And then this happened......

Reese reposted my picture of Huck and I passed out from shock and then sheer joy.  My Instagram fame lasted for about 15 seconds but my fan girling went on for weeks.  I am still holding out for my invite with her and Oprah because CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO TALK BOOKS WITH THEM OVER A DELICIOUS BRUNCH??  A girl can dream......
