Why I Started
Come along with me while I reminisce.....I need you to because I am entering a blog giveaway over at Ordinary Miracles of Life...click HERE to check it out....My bloggy friend Wendy asks the question why we started blogging......and it is very fitting...because actually it was my 2 year bloggiversary on Mother's Day....I've been meaning to get my act together to celebrate as well..but with my laptop in the shop for so long I was out of commission.....so check back...I may just have to do something fun!
Anyhoo.....it's pretty remarkable that the same person who inspired her, inspired me as well.....One of my soul sisters Ms. Jennifer Juniper!! Actually all of my soul sisters, pictured above....have inspired and loved me along the way....each of them having amazing blogs as well...I was at Marzipan's house for a coffee one morning....invited by a mutual friend and Jennifer came up to me and I didn't even realize I knew her... Then she pulled her hair up in a ponytail and said, " I stand in front of you in kickboxing!" We all look so different with our hair and makeup done and real clothes on that I didn't even recognize her. And then it all began......I was reading all of their fun, witty, crafting, cooking, baking blogs....learning things along the way...I kinda wanted one of my own...but didn't think I could do it. I mean REALLY...what could I possibly have to say???????
Well, apparently A LOT!!!!! I love to scrapbook for my kiddos, I write to them in journals and save nearly every cute and important thing that relates to their lives....but this little blog is just for me! It is a story of my live, things that make me happy and sad...crafts, recipes, ideas, and stuff that really isn't important either...but I love it.......My family got me a laptop two years ago for a Mother's Day/Birthday combo gift and the first thing I did was set up my blog....all by myself! And believe you me.......if I can do it...anyone can!! Go ahead.....if you've been lurking around reading blogs morning, noon and night...start one yourself, it's so much fun and you'll make so many wonderful friends along the way!
