living a well tended life... at any age

announcing VRAI Magazine!

Big announcement for little me today.

A while back I was contacted by Danny, of the blog 1227  Foster – he told me that he was starting a new on-line magazine, and would I like to be one of the contributors?

My initial reaction was what it typically is in these situations – something along the lines of “this must be a mistake”.

But I read on and it was clear that a) he was very familiar with my blog, and b) this was not a mistake.

And I can’t tell you how excited I am to share VRAI Magazine with all of you!


So what is VRAI Magazine?

“VRAI Magazine is a blog lifestyle magazine written by creative and experienced bloggers with real stories to share. Throughout each month, stories will unfold that touch upon various aspects of everyday life — from food, home, entertaining, crafts and decor, fashion, beauty, well-being and travel — but each written from a personal perspective.”

Twice each month you’ll find mouthwatering recipes, great ideas to brighten up your “everyday” and stunningly photographed journeys to destinations around the world.

With the glut of information coming at us each and every day I was truly impressed with Danny’s vision – and his commitment to providing something truly different and beautifully executed.

Today is the launch of the premier issue and I’d love you to take a look – I’m in it! My article is entitled “Parenting on Both Sides of Facebook”, and it’s a piece I’ve been writing in my head for several years.
