So here I am, writing the very first post of my new blog, and ladies I am so excited! For about two years now I have been itching for *something* to engage my brain, give me an outlet, help me meet others. I have tried online communities and playdates, preschool gym classes and church groups. I have met some great women in all these places, but honestly, I have been a little disappointed by how hard it all seems. Hard to meet people, hard to make lasting connections, hard to share this crazy adventure I am on.
See, this whole stay-at-home thing has been very different from what I expected. I worked hard to get an education and worked hard out there, and when I decided to stay home with my first I thought it would be so easy. I would always have a clean house, always get my workouts in, always look cute in my well-accessorized casual outfits. My kids would eat healthy, wholesome foods and never throw tantrums in public.
Rude awakening doesn't begin to describe it.
Still, I love it. And I know many of you out there do to...and like me, many of you also want a place to be both who you are now AND who you used to be. A mommy, but also a person. A short-order cook, but also a lover of fine food. A mega-blocks builder, but also a creative human being with her own crafty projects in mind. Well, I hope this can be a place for all that stuff, and I am looking forward to meeting you!
