Today I am at Reachel's lovely blog Cardigan Empire talking about Beauty. I love what she and her blog stands for, and am honored to participate in her real, beauty-full Tuesday column.

I also wrote an article for the debut of the Off Switch Magazine - edited and created by the talented Katie Michels. It is an article about why I write, and one that I put a lot of thought into. It launches tomorrow and I am thrilled to be involved in such a fantastic project. Katie is very detailed, and I think it will be an awesome addition to the on-line mag world.

I get a lot of emails asking for me to write in various places. Let me just say - I love to be included in these opportunities, even if I don't take every opportunity that comes my way. It pushes me and motivates me and allows me to "meet" such wonderful people. I am pretty grateful for this blogosphere and the kind people who motivate me to do what I really love to do.

Loved your post on Cardigan Empire!

We're taught from day one, we girls, to look pretty, act pretty, but whatever we do, do not let on that you know, that they know, that you know, you are pretty!

Beautiful message for girls and women of all ages!

Just read your article in Off Switch. As a fellow writer, I could identify with many of your feelings... the calling, the ideas, the pressure and uncertainty. Thank you for sharing!
