A day in the life . . .

My 20-month-old is about as busy as they come.  A happy, energetic bundle of energy, she’s always on the go.  A typical day for her involves as much play as possible, only interrupted by the mandatory 2-3 hour nap that keeps her mother sane.

First words.

Greetings!  Welcome to my very first post, the first of what I hope to be many, many more to come.

I realize that first meetings can sometimes be awkward (this coming from a person who is assuredly on the socially awkward side), so I’ll make this as brief as possible to get it over with quickly.

For numerous reasons, I’ve had a burning desire for a while to commit my musings to a blog. I’ve been a faithful journal writer/blogger for years.  I have boxes of handwritten journals that I treasure (the earliest records from 1992, jotted down in six-year-old penmanship on pink lined paper), and I continue to journal in ink and paper.  I’ve also authored a few blogs now and again in the past, but I feel inspired to turn over a new leaf, so to speak, in the form of a fresh, modern blog.

To sum up my presence, I’m a wife; a mother of two, with another one on the way; an architect; an artist; an amateur photographer; a novice chef + baker; an avid thrift shopper; a seeker of adventure in my own backyard; and a lover of good design and creativity.  I like to think that I view the world from a slightly different and interesting perspective.  I hope to share with you my musings of my life, which is one of creative idealism mixed with heavy doses of realism (in large part thank to my kiddos, who provide a daily reality check for this momma). Enjoy!
