Saint Lydia's Book Club Article

Last night I received an email from Melinda Johnson inviting me to be a guest blogger on Saint Lydia's Book Club.  My first thought was "How exciting! I'm moving up in the world."  My second thought was "I wouldn't know what to write.  Maybe I shouldn't."  I had a third thought, though, and I decided to accept the invitation.  Even though it will be a few months before it's due, I've already started working on it.  I'd like to make sure it's good.  Somehow, it feels more important that it be just right than posting on my own blog does.  So, keep an eye out in February for my upcoming article in her Orthodox Writers, Readers, and Artists series.  I hope it will be worth the wait...

In the meantime, check out the article written by my illustrator, Sheena Hisiro.  She has included some of the pictures from Josiah and Julia in it.

The Chosen One

I chose the Lincoln Square.  Although it's a little baggy at the top because I'm a little flat in that area, overall I really like this dress.  The fabric is cotton with a slight satin sheen. I love the high, modest collar and calf-length flared skirt.  It was a big hit at church today.  I received many compliments on the dress and the shoes with which I paired it.
