This feature was originally published in Fall 2015 edition of The Local Biz Magazine. The editor, Wendy Chiavalon, has been following my blog since it first launched! Wendy invited me to write an article for her magazine and I was thrilled for having the opportunity. The final article was close to 2000 words, so it’s longer than my usual format here at The Motherhood Scene. To make the article easier to digest, I’ll be splitting my writing over two blog posts.
