I am so honored to be one of the writers in the newest issue of Real Simple magazine. 12 writers, including me, were asked to write a short on their most meaningful moment in the day. It is an amazing group including Geraldine Brooks. The magazine is now on newstands. I hope you will read it and post your comments here!

  3. Hi Monica,
    I just got my Parents magazine in the mail and enjoyed your lovely, lovely article, “Our Almost-Perfect Family.” Best wishes to you and your family.

    As a many-year subscriber of Real Simple, I have begun just skipping ahead to the food section, and sometimes skipping several months at a time (too busy to read for pleasure!). This weekend, I decided to pore over my RS, and when I got to the meaningful moment piece, started writing down authors/books I desparately want to add to my reading list–and suddenly–there you were! I did a double take. Yes, this was “our” (EY) Monica Bhide again! Thank you for the gratefulness meditation and many, many kudos to you! I’ve got to get a copy of Modern Spice, quickly!
