o, the oprah magazine

Since I can't keep a secret to save my life, it took all my willpower and some extra not to talk about this months ago and now I'm so excited to finally share it!

This week I am so honored to be featured in the August issue of O, the Oprah Magazine. You can find me on page 33 (right after Oprah's letter to readers! Whoa!) 

:) Hello, Oprah! :)

Mike and I rushed out to Cambridge on Friday morning to pick up a copy (or three) and then had a celebratory breakfast at my favorite diner. I think that was the last sit-down meal I've had since then, because the response has been overwhelming. It seems I'm not the only one with a love of wanderlust and possibility.

Special thanks to Oprah writer Rachel Bertsche, who took the crazy jumble of stories and details from our interviews and created an article that perfectly captures the wanderlust spirit of my art and artistic mission. From our interview I found Rachel's first book, MWF Seeking BFF, which is an equal parts hilarious and sweet exploration of friendship that I loved and totally recommend reading this summer (preferably alongside a female friend because you will want to read bits out loud and laugh over how they are so true. And you won't get that response from a boyfriend. Trust me, I tried. "What's a frenemy?" Ugh, dudes.)

Thanks so much to everyone who has sent sweet comments my way and to those of you who have found your way to my blog because of O Magazine! I look forward to making awesome art for you for as long as I can.
