My New JOB!!!

Guys, I have some exciting news! 

It's a new job!!!

I'm sure you gathered that from my ingenious and awesome title up there, but hey, a girl's gotta state the obvious every once in a while. And, well I really just wanted to share my excitement with you.




Last month I was contacted by the editor of YourTango-Traditional Love blog to write a weekly column about love based on traditional values incorporated with a Christian faith background. This is such an awesome opportunity. And, I'm still swooning. 

I've always been a writer at heart, but the measly term and research papers I wrote in high school and college never seemed like enough validation to call myself a writer.   

I realized now that I don't need validation anymore. I know who I am, and I know where I'm going. I am a writer. 

If you can spare a few extra minutes in your day, I encourage you to check out what Traditional Love is all about! 

"Traditional Love is a blog that focuses on cherishing love, marriage and family. Here we will look at love, marriage and family through the lens of faith and politics and personal experience, exploring what it truly means to have a long-lasting relationship."

"Love that makes you think of wedding dresses, kisses that make you kick up your heels and hiding the cookies until he apologizes for not rubbing your back. Not that I would EVER do anything so petty."

And, if you're really interested -- My most recent column:
Do You Follow Your Heart, But Ignore Your Instincts?


Happy Monday, friends!
