Exciting NEWS!

Exciting News

The answer is no. NO, we are not expecting another baby.
No.
Nope.

BUT…there has been a lot going on around our house in the past month (or two). Mainly, my computer desk area got taken over by a Christmas tree and other Christmas decoration explosions! I am happy to report that the tree is down and I have my wonderful work space back!

Anyways…

Back to the NEWS.
In October I did a big International Babywearing Week post on my website with mini photo-sessions with moms and babies and a group photo shoot with everyone. The editor of our local newspaper found out about International Babywearing Week and contacted me. I told her about my photo shoots, IBW, and my blog where I was posting the pictures.

The next thing I knew, I was meeting with the editor and she was offering me a column in the local newspaper to write about mom-type-things! She said that the publisher and herself loved my blog and my writing and thought it would be a good addition to the local paper!
What?! How cool, right?

(See what I did there, with the title? Exciting NEWS as in NEWSPAPER! Yeah, I didn’t think it was funny either.)

Since then I have been writing some mom column pieces here and there and have even written a few of the headline articles. Look at me! I am now writing regularly with the newspaper and am loving writing and meeting new people in my community. I have no idea what is next for me, but I am loving being a bigger part of my community and sharing my thoughts as a mom to other moms in my area.

I never knew if anything would come out of my blog writing. I do it on the side, between changing diapers, mediating fights over toys, and trying to manage my home, but it is a labor of LOVE. I LOVE the writing. I LOVE sharing what I know and I LOVE the people and connections I have been making for the past 4+ years. It feels pretty good for someone to look at my work and recognize the work and love I have put into it. I am not going anywhere. I am actually hoping to be able to blog a little MORE often now that I am doing it for the paper as well.
