Even before I started my blog, one of my favorite publications was Artful Blogging. With each new issue, I found endless inspiration and secretly thought about how wonderful and amazing it would be to someday see myself in its pages. I’m beyond thrilled to say that my wish has came true and that that day has arrived.
This past July, I was contacted by the editor of Artful Blogging asking if I would like to be a part of an upcoming issue, to which I wholeheartedly said, “Yes!” Well, the Winter 2012 magazine has just been published and in it you’ll find eight pages of my photographs along with my article.
I wrote about all the time I’ve spent wondering where I’m supposed to be headed in my life…what I’m meant to be doing. I talked about how for a long time, I thought I’d never find the answer, but slowly, bit by bit, a little thought started to seep into my head and then, I knew.
So, anyway, thank you Artful Blogging for letting me share a little bit of myself in your pretty publication. I feel so honored…and happy.
Now, I may be a wee bit biased, but I think this issue is truly one of the most beautiful that I’ve ever seen them put together. This is partly thanks to a variety of lovely ladies, including Anne at Fiona and Twig, Tracey from French Larkspur and Lynda at Lynda Naranjo Photography, who provided pages and pages of beauty and inspiration. Ohhh my, it’s just so much gorgeousness all rolled together, I know you’d all love it too.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you all have a spectacular weekend.
