I have a degree in journalism and always thought I would be a magazine writer, but times have changed. I still love magazine and maybe one day I will work full-time for a publication, but now I can write when and what I want and freelance when I can. As my blog is coming up on its’ one year anniversary, I’ve been reflecting on what I’ve been proud of most this year.
I was super excited when one of my all-time favorite magazines, Real Simple, said I would be published in their June edition. I had emailed in an answer to the their “Your Words” section. The question was “What’s your best gardening advice?” I love to garden and so does my golden retriever. That’s when I learned that pet-friendly plants are so important. She’s outgrown the eating plants stage, but every now and then I find her digging up a bed of flowers. So I shared my words and they were published. This was something I had to scrapbook!
I subscribe to this magazine and so did one of my coworkers so I had two copies, you can subscribe via print or kindle on Amazon. I kept the cover and page, one is pinned to my desk and the other became part of this page. A flower paper, photos of me and Havana, and flower embellishments is all this page needed.
