The Journey/The Destination

After a super-long hiatus, I'm writing again. My novel is back on my desktop, taking a new direction and perspective. Although at the rate I'm going, I may have grandchildren before it's complete. I try not to think of it that way; I try to remind myself it's about the journey, not the destination.

But the destination can be nice too. It's been 18 months since I began writing an article on mother's circles. Two months after completing it, Mothering magazine retained it for publication; six months after that they released it due to a backlog of articles; six months after that I pitched it again to my favorite online publication, Rhythm of the Home; and today (yes, today!) it debuts in their Autumn issue.

I am so honored and excited to be a part of this beautiful and engaging magazine. So while I know it is mostly about the journey, I couldn't be more pleased about the destination. I invite you to head on over to the latest edition of Rhythm of the Home and browse through all the creative projects and insightful articles inside.

I love when I stumble acrossed stories of women gathering in circle! The pictures alone look beautiful. There is true magic in building a tribe of women who can support each other. Thank you for sharing!
