My First Post

I'm a bit of a blog junkie. I have a few blogs I like to peruse. Some of them make me laugh, some of them inspire me, some of them awe me with writing that is profound and beautiful. I've always thought I should create my own blog, but frankly never had the gumption to actually do it. Who would read it? What do I have to say? Isn't a bit narcisstic?

Last week my friend Gina announced that she was starting a blog. She was so matter of fact about it, so confident in her purpose. Yesterday my friend Brooke told me she had a blog as well. Sometimes when I talk to Brooke I feel like I must have known her in a past life....she reminds me of me, she loves so many of the same things that I love.

These girls give me courage. It seems silly to need courage to simply write what is in my heart. But a blog seems so "out there". Nevertheless, here it is. Stories of my life, maybe a recipe or two, a few cute pictures of my kids. Nothing fancy, but a blog of my very own. A simple accomplishment, but an important one to me.
