I didn’t intend to time it this way, but this past weekend I had blogs published at the Huffington Post and Scary Mommy. They’re original pieces, so you can’t read them here, but I’ve provided links below.
A few weeks ago, I had an incident with Barrett in a California Pizza Kitchen, while on our February mini-road trip. I have petty thick skin when it comes to Bear and our escapade at CPK wasn’t my first time at this particular rodeo, but two things made it unique for me. The first was the way the restaurant manger handled our situation that night. The second was how similar the event was to an article I’d read at the Huffington Post a few weeks ago, titled To the Woman and Child Who Sat at Table 9. I decided to write about it and submit our story. Eleven months after my first try, I finally got a piece posted at the Huffington Post. Yay! Overall, the response has been positive, but as of yesterday, I received my first (published) negative response to my writing – so I’ve arrived! Surprisingly, I had a good reaction – I just laughed at the snide comment. Different strokes…

I’ve also written an Atlanta Travel Guide for the website, Scary Mommy. The guides at Scary Mommy focus on things to do with your kids. It was hard to limit it to ten places (as I was asked to do), so I emailed my girls for input. Thank you for all the feedback. You can read the list at Scary Mommy.
I also posted my for blog at the Family Legacy Center (which was featured here last week). I happy to announce I’ve been asked back, and will be featured there monthly – writing about the topic of legacy, which is very important to me.
Thanks for all the support and encouragement! I’m grateful to ALL of you!
