I have been blogging for quite a few years. But I have always had this internal dilemma of wanting people to read it and at the same time not wanting to share the personal things I was writing about. So I decided to start a blog that I felt comfortable sharing with the public. It doesn’t mean I won’t write about personal things, but I will probably not share so many photos of my little cuties or share their actual names…things like that. 🙂 I am really excited about this because I really love to write. Even if nobody ever reads what I write, this is just something I really enjoy doing. We all need things that are for us.
I have found that ever since I’ve become a stay at home mom I have less and less things that I enjoy doing for me! Scrapbooking is laughable. IF I have a little rare time to myself, it takes so much time just to get all my supplies out that I barely have time to do anything before I need to put it all away again…because I can’t leave it out. And all the other things I like to do- cross country ski, camp, swim, folf, hike, etc I do with my family. So reading and writing are the things I’ve found to most easily do when I am able to take some time for myself.
There are a lot of things I enjoy writing about….mostly it will revolve around parenting (fun things we do, playing in nature, my journey toward home schooling…) but other times I will write about books I’m reading, themed parties I’ve thrown or fun cakes I’ve made (I’m a sucker for a good themed party), trips we go on, causes I am passionate about, and life in general. I will probably end up writing some things about child birth, pregnancy and things like that since I am currently pregnant with my third. Woohoo! (Don’t worry, I do have some friends who keep their placentas in their freezer or make placenta smoothies. haha I love my friends. But that’s not the kind of thing I’m talking about. I will likely write about my choice for natural birth, health during pregnancy, and things I’ve experienced during my different pregnancies.)
Because we just got back from a road trip, I am going to start with a series on traveling with young children. I hope you stop by every once in a while and check in on our adventures!
