So here I sit. Blog name established. Weeks spent on developing the “perfect” custom logo ((huge kudos to Shane Read Creative)). A list of fifty-one, and counting, topics I want to discuss on the blog. Suddenly, a new issue arises… the person who never is at a loss for words, is well, at a loss for words! The creative part of me has been losing sleep over this for weeks, months actually, and now that it’s finally here I honestly just don’t know how to “start blogging” any other way but to simply dive right in.A small disclaimer first- I’m eight years removed from college, probably ten from an English class, so my grammar is frightful. I’m kind of one of those make-it-up-as-you-go grammar kind of girls. My apologies.
A quick Google search told me I should begin by telling my audience who I am. Let me be honest…I’m thirty and I think what that means is I myself am still figuring out who I am! I can tell you what I know to be true at this point- I am a Christian, living in the South. I’m married to my lifetime love...I chose him for a lifetime nine years ago and everyday I wake up and choose him all over again. Our “Rooney” will be three years in August and “Sister-girl” is eight months. They challenge me, teach me, better me and make me feel love in ways I never knew existed.
I’m a blog addict. Seriously need rehab. I’m rather specific with my addiction. I have friends who are super talented in writing their personal story & family life endeavors, and I enjoy following their blogs because of the personal relationship we share, but my real addiction is blogs which focus on DIY, crafting, home design, homeschooling, and foodie “stuff” (mixed with a little parenting advice of course, because it’s only natural that other mother bloggers inadvertently s q u e e z e that in occasionally)!
So, it’s my aim that you will join me frequently at Goodness Gathering… sharing a collection of my interest and praying that I can help you in some small way make your HOUSE a HOME.
If you're a junkin', farmhouse lovin, Pinterest time consumin', cake stand & mixing bowl collectin', polka dot likin', flip flop wearin', chocolate eatin' & coffee drinkin' kind of friend- well, you should find a perfect fit right here...........
