A is for... A Reason to Blog

After almost two years of sitting on the sidelines, gathering inspiration from all sorts, I've finally decided to jump right in to the world of Blogs.  As a mother, wife, and full-time teacher, I regularly feel as though my life is running faster than I am.  Sometimes it's easy for women like me to turn on auto pilot and take on the day, without really being present.  My son just turned one, and I know that he won't be little forever.  I want to be present in my life and notice the beauty in each and every day. 

I started this blog as a way to remind myself to remain present and notice what is going on around me.  Whether it be an inspirational thought, craft tutorial, recipe, or new decorating project, I aim to write about something every day.  My first task is to complete the Blogging from A-Z Challenge April 2012. .  Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck and I hear you. I too am a full time teacher and a less and less part time writer. Great idea to have your blog as a way to be present. I should think of it that way. Nice to meet you.

  2. Good luck from another teacher - I'm following.

  4. Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments! Putting your thoughts and life out there to the world is a bit intimidating, and I'm thankful for your encouragement.

    A.M. and Jaye - thanks for being my first followers! I'm eager to check out each of your blogs and learn about your experiences teaching and managing life.

    Denitza- I appreciate your compliment. It was my husband who took the photo. He's definitely the photographer in our family!

  5. A is for "Awesome Sister". You are such a great writer and inspiration. I'm so proud of you for doing something you've always wanted to do. Love you sister.
