I’ll never forget the very first time I blogged. I was sixteen, and in summer school. The class was a two-week intensive and nothing that anyone (including the teacher) took very seriously. I was playing around on OpenDiary.com, and decided to write something. I’m sure that first post is still out there on the world wide web somewhere, but I have no idea where or what it’s about. A simple teenage blog was born that day, back when blogging was still a very teenage thing to do.
Blogging has evolved, and so have I. Since that summer, I’ve finished high school and college, gotten married, held my first real job, and left that job to stay at home and be a full-time mom to my two sweet boys.
But I’ve found I haven’t outgrown my desire to write about my life. In fact, without a career or college class to force me to write, I need blogging as an outlet. As something for me. I tried for awhile to fit into some niche I thought a “mommy blog” should fill, but I found it impossible to divorce that one part of my life from any other.
So I just write about a little bit of everything – my boys, my man, the church we pastor, the books I read, my kitchen triumphs and tragedies, and most of all, my relationship with the Lord. I love to write the content for this blog. I hope you love reading it, too.
