My publicity-shy wife, who was very hesitant when I wanted to share the story of her getting her private pilot’s license last month, was totally caught off guard when the largest pilot’s association (The AOPA) saw her story on my blog, and contacted her to see if she would be willing to let them do a story on her for AOPA Pilot magazine.

Of course, I really wanted her to do it, so I kind of nudged her along, until she said “OK.” (Luckily, she loves being an AOPA member, so it wasn’t a very hard sell). But when you’re hesitant to be out there like that, of course you know what happens right? That’s right—it winds up running on their Web site right on the home page! (as seen above). Although she’s not quite sure how to handle all the attention, I think it’s cool as anything (said the proud hubby!).

Here’s a link to the full story, along with photos (special thanks to Keri McDaniel for the shot of my wife singing for the story).
