So it's 2009. It's been a little over 3 years since I've really written in a blog. I had to take a break from where I was at that point in my life, back when. There were a lot of chapters to that blog, a lot of them happy memories which I still love going back and reading...a lot of them sad memories which still make me cry. I actually posted on that old site just last year...when my boys came back to town (the reunion of the New Kids on the Block!). I thought about re-starting my blog life on that site, just picking up kind of where I left off...after all it is still there, still that same old layout, same colors, very comfortable. But I have this overwhelming desire to start fresh, so here I landed. It will take some getting used to - after all I posted there for over 2 years. But I already like the feel of this site. I'm excited...and I have developed so much more as a person in the 3 years since my last blog. I feel like I have so much more to say, so much more to share.
My first thought was that I wanted to start a blog about just crafting alone...posting ideas, pictures, tutorials for crafts I do or want to do, including a lot of ideas about homemade gifts and getting started on next years Christmas gifts now...because that is one one thing that is really up-front in my mind right now. But then I thought, I could include some of my baking/cooking experiences too, and maybe some party-planning tips and ideas, and pictures. And that takes me to another passion of mine - photography, I could include that too! So in the few days the idea has been brewing to start blogging again, it morphed from a craft blog into a sort-of crazy, everything I love blog. I realized that I just have so many interests and so many things that I'm passionate about - that I just need to write about whatever I feel like writing about at the moment and not limit myself to one particular thing. Along the way you'll probably see that I have many more interests than I have even mentioned already. It might be a really odd assortment of posts from day to day or week to week, sort of like a funny, looping roller coaster. But then, I always did love roller coasters!
