When I was young, I daydreamed about living in NYC. I would most certainly wear a business suit and write for a major magazine.

Years later, I found myself back in Emmetsburg, Iowa, owning a business and working my way back to writing.

I just knew I would “make it” when I wrote for a big name {Scary Mommy}. I just knew I would “make it” when I wrote at an fully international level {Australian Bride}. I just knew I would really be “a legitimate writer” when I was published in print {Bella Grace}. Each of those moments were gorgeous and exciting and wonderful and... fleeting.

My heart continued to be drawn back, along with my words.

And all of these years later, I finally understand, there’s nothing in this world that feels like coming home.
