My friend Tanya Ward Goodman recently published an article on TheNextFamily.com about her transition from stay-at-home mom and sometimes writer to published author of her first book Leaving Tinkertown. Her thoughts on career and family were just so on-point with my journey from “stay-at-home momhood” to…whatever’s next, that I wanted to share it here. I’m sure her words will ring true for many of you as well.

Please also check out Tanya’s beautifully written book. In Leaving Tinkertown, Tanya tells the story of her unconventional childhood growing up in a New Mexico roadside museum with her eccentric, creative and loving father and her experience returning home to help care for her father after his diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.
