First of Many (I Hope)

Well, here it goes. I am entering the world of blogging. It's a little scary but mostly fun and exciting, I think. I hope to share what's on my mind and in my heart about a wide range of topics, even if I'm the only one who reads it. Okay, Kevin has to read it, too. He's the one who encouraged me to do this anyway.

You see, I would love to be a writer when I grow up. I've tried only a handful of times to get published in magazines. So far it hasn't happened, but I've received very nice rejection letters. So this blog can be where I practice and "hone my craft." It will also be a good way for me to journal, since I basically haven't done that since sixth grade. Undoubtedly, many of my posts will involve stories about my children, since I am a stay-at-home mom, so you other moms will be able to read and relate and laugh or cry in understanding.

Thanks for humoring me by reading!

You never know, an aquaintance of mine just had a book published that she wrote compiling stories of children, husbands, and general day to day stuff that her and her girlfriends talked about during weekly get togethers. She is selling them nationally. In fact Dorothy has her book (I think).
