A Dream Come True...

I have been waiting five long months to share this with you. I am beyond thrilled to announce that my blog has been featured in the Spring 2010 issue of Artful Blogging magazine!!!

When Chisten Olivarez, the senior editor of Artful Blogging, contacted me last September about the possibility of being featured in one of my favorite publications, I was over the moon. I almost didn't even allow myself to believe the news until Christen sent me a pdf file of the article a couple of months ago. I can still barely believe my good fortune even as I hold the issue in my hands.
I was so honored to write this piece. Blogging has become such a meaningful part of my life. It was a joy to write an essay about sharing my life in an open and honest manner because I believe in its power to connect us all in this great big world.
I am so excited to have a this treasure to look back on someday; with a little piece of all my girls, our life just as it is, and my views at this precise moment. So how do the girls feel about being in a magazine, you ask? Well, let's just say they have other interests at the moment...
...but for the most part, I think everyone is pretty giddy over the whole thing!
Aside from my being included, it's a really wonderful issue filled with so many inspiring women that I admire {I'm still pinching myself that I am among them!} You can find Artful Blogging at large bookstores like Border's and Barnes & Noble and at some specialized retailers. You can also order a copy online from the Stampington website.
