Famous in BEC. Amy Wilde: Atmosphere

I have read Dear Abby forever. FOREVER. I loved each morning opening the paper and seeing her 50's haircut, and her solid words of advice. I remember thinking, I would like to see my picture and words in print someday. Well, I finally got the courage up to take in some of my sample columns into the Box Elder News Journal...and after a bit of a wait, and some persistence...I have my own column!! The editor is going to let me have a monthly column, and I could not be more thrilled!!!! Thank you to all of my friends and family who have supported me in this little dream. You are my best writing inspiration. :) The column name is Atmosphere. Named for the air we create around us, for the motion we make when we move, for the wind that carries our thoughts, and for the vast amounts of feeling in this universe. I am so excited to keep writing!! If you are interested you can read my first few columns by clicking this link:

Aim,
What was your latest column about? I am thrilled that you are taking up this dream of yours...you truly inspire us all to reach for our own. By the way, I LOVE the new pictures of the kids on the sidebar of your blog! Just look how big Maggie is now! Wow. And Emma is really a beauty with her hair in soft curls. I love that pic of Hayden at FG. :)

Way to go Amy! I know I must say this to you all the time, but you truly are an amazingly talented woman! You inspire me and teach me all the time (and not just about how to have shiny legs.) I LOVE your writing, and can't wait to read more :)
