Happy 2015! 2014 was fantastic. It was a year of transitions and uncertainty. Some of the scariest times of my life. But there was so much love and growth I would not change any of it.
I had a few firsts and accomplishments last year:
1) Did a fitness bootcamp for the very first time. At 5:45 A.M!
2) Hosted my first Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving and Xmas Eve Dinner
3) Joined the planning committee for an amazing conference aimed to increase diversity among women writers and provide a venue for writers to learn and share from one another! Out of the Binders is happening in L.A in the Spring of 2015.
4) Received payment for a piece of writing for the first time.
My amazing former colleague/poet/badass Heather introduced me to an amazing group of women writers that led me to try to find a home for a few of the articles on motherhood I wrote shortly after the birth of my son. I pitched to this amazing site, Mommyish. It's thrilling to see my work published on a site that I read while I was pregnant! I love its funny, raw, edgy take on motherhood. The kind of site that is not afraid to give you the good, the bad and the messy parts of motherhood.
This year I want to build on this successes from last year and continue to develop my writing portfolio.
I'm so excited for 2015!
