My Very First Post! (unoriginal title)


My Very First Post!...how original.  OK, but I'm excited about starting my first blog and getting out there in the blogging world.  I have a very dear friend (Kate Morris) who has an amazing, inspirational blog Thighs & Offerings, my older sister (Liz Bridges) has a a fabulous food & family blog Confessions of a Former Couch Potato and now I'm following another blog that I thoroughly enjoy Gretchen Opgenorth Designs someone with whom my company has done marketing business...so I guess in a way, "my very first post" is more of a 'shout-out' or pat on the back to my fellow bloggers out there and to say to them, "THANKS".  Thanks for the amazing writing you do, for the interest and struggles you have in so many areas (food, more food, friendships, family, reading, design, antiques, etc.)...your blogging gives me inspiration to follow and delve into the things I also enjoy each and every day...and it gives me something insightful to appreciate as I begin my journey into this new place of self-discovery.  I hope to post things that are not only beneficial to other readers or "followers" (in the blogging world), but also to myself...as that is the main reason for this blog.  Thank you in advance to those out there who may read from time-to-time...although it may not always be 'moving', I hope that my posts can be a fresh take on 'the everyday' in the life of "MY FAMILIA"!!
