It has been nearly 7 weeks at home now and we are certainly getting all the wheels turning again. For the boys that means school and play dates and reconnecting with friends. For Bo that has meant starting out on his own in work he has wanted to make his career for as long as I’ve known him. He’s working full time as a management consultant and loving it.
And for myself… in trying to figure out what my next progression ought to be, one option in particular got me excited about the idea of heading to work each day. Thanks to all the encouragement from you readers of this blog, I am exploring the world as a writer.
So far this has entailed writing everything from wine reviews to pages of prose no one will ever see to further summaries of our sabbatical experience for those wanting to hear more. And today, thanks to our wonderful and supportive hometown newspaper, I get to share with all of you findingforeigners my very first ever byline! Thanks to the Crested Butte News for letting me tell our story in their paper!
Here’s the link, and below is the image of how it appeared in the paper itself:
Believe it or not, I have a couple other pieces being published in the next few weeks and will share those with you when they come out. In the meantime, if there is a topic you want to hear more about or a question you’ve been wanting to ask, or a fantastic and high-paying world-wide major publication that you’d like me to write for…
now would be an awesome time to drop me a line about that. 😉
