Our favorite tree outside our front door

Ok... so my New Year's Resolution is to post something new everyday. Yes. A new blog entry every single day. And yes I am aware that today is already the 6th... but isn't that the great thing about resolutions... they can happen anytime.

After many chats yesterday with different girlfriends about "finding your path"... (everyone ALWAYS seems to be going through the same soul searching at exactly the same time. Weird. I know) ... I spent the day ruminating on what might be my inner talent or gift to this world. Yes being a Mom is absolutely what I am supposed to be doing right now but I always seem to have this little nagging feeling that I am missing something else... what is beyond motherhood.

So of course writing once again comes front and center. It has always been a joy for me. I find it soothing, calming, and oh so therapeutic:) And everyone knows to grow in your craft - you have to practice - everyday. So begins my journey.. and from here on out I will not edit or labor over perfectionism.
I will just write.
For me.
And not caring how many people out there in cyber space read or agree or disagree with the words put on paper.
I will write.


  1. Yeah! I love your writing! Can't wait to follow along on your adventure.

    Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I am ready for another girl's craft night soon ;)

  2. Oooh yes... I actually had spaced about craft night... I am going to get something in the works!

  3. Yay! I've been trying to convince myself to start posting regularly too. Maybe this is the inspiration I need.

  4. Shannon - you need to post a belly picture!

  5. I will try. It is getting BIG!!
