My Crescer Article is out Today!

May 2, 2007

Awhile back I mentioned meeting up with Paula, the Editor-in-Chief for Crescer, the big parenting magazine in Brazil, where she asked me to write an article. Well the issue with my article came out today. (Hooray!)

I can’t believe I have a byline. I can’t wait to get my hands on a hard copy. My kids are going to think they’re famous. Since I don’t read Portuguese, I’m going to need to look up the essay I sent over and remind myself what I wrote — I hope it was good.

And a huge thank you to Jeff Taylor for taking the family picture. I was imagining they were requesting the photo for a little spot on the “Contributors” page, but clearly, when they saw Jeff’s amazing shot, they felt it was feature worthy. Thanks, Jeff! (It’s so great to see a portrait of the Blairs without a single family member picking their nose.)

PLEASE get me a hard copy, too. I’ll pay! (I’ve learned you have to get it while you can. I didn’t get Budget Living featuring Jordan/Paul, and I missed my chance.)

What a great family photo. My husband knows how I love reading your blog so I made him come and look at Design Mom’s family photo, and we both agree it’s beautiful, and such lovely outfits, tastefully coordinated.

Gorgeous! What fun to see your whole family. I’m floored that the last time I saw you there was only tiny baby Ralph in the picture–you guys have been busy! Gabby, really, what an achievement–such a family.


20 Queen Scarlett May 2, 2007 at 1:57 pm

26 mamalang May 2, 2007 at 7:57 pm

What a beautiful picture…and I love that it doesn’t feel stiff and posed, but more careless, this is what we are. Awesome achievement! Congrats!


27 Judy May 2, 2007 at 8:26 pm

You have the most beautiful family! You have to post the article in english so we can all read it! I need to have the whole experience.

What a beautiful family you have! Yeah, I wish I could read portuguese, too! Congrats!


32 Roger May 3, 2007 at 12:22 pm

Congratulations! Send me the hardcopy or a higher resolution scan of the article, being from Brazil, I’ll be more than happy to translate the article. So far the only thing that’ s legible to me is the title and pullout halfway down: “After all, what kind of woman is this? Women today search — and find — solutions, which are balanced and work for them.”


33 Juliane May 3, 2007 at 2:26 pm

Congratulations Gabby!! You must be so happy. Thanks for the shout out to Jeff (he really is a great photographer).


34 laurie May 3, 2007 at 5:05 pm
