Welcome! Come on in and sit down. Grab a cup of coffee, or tea or are you a hot chocolate kind of girl...or guy? Actually, I am a chai latte girl myself and I visit my local Starbucks a few times a week. On day when I allow myself to eat whatever I want...I also visit my local Dunkin' Donuts for an egg and cheese croissant! Yum! We'll talk about those issues on another day!
Well, this is my first attempt at a blog. I really haven't a clue what I am doing, but I am sure that will be very evident during these first few weeks! I have spent some time thinking about what I will write about and the things that come to mind are of course, the things that have the biggest impact on my life.
That would be, in no particular, especially vegetarian fare and desserts, exercise in the form of yoga, pilates, biking and hiking...not that I do any of those with any kind of consistency, but I do try and I do enjoy talking about them. I will problably talk from time to time about sports, especially during baseball season. I am one of those crazed Cubs fans you hear about.
I will also talk about family. We are very close to our kids and very much a part of their lives. I love talking about them and their accomplishments, but I will try not to get carried away.
My online card and gift shop will also be a regular topic, although my blog will not be a billboard for my business. I will keep you informed as to what I am doing because my business is a huge part of who I am right now. I will let you know when I add new things to my store or have "bright ideas". I will share the ups and downs of being a business owner and there are many!
Beyond that....who knows. We will just take each day as it comes.
I will do my best to make this a place where you can come to find some peace, comfort and maybe a good laugh at times. There could be tears of sorrow and tears of joy as we move through this adventure we all call life. I hope you will visit often.
Where I grew up, the door to our house was always open. Neighbors would stop by and if you weren't home, they would still grab a cup of coffee and sit down hoping you might be back soon. If you didn't get back, they would leave a note letting you know they had been by.
That's how I want my blog to be. Come by to visit any time. Let me know you were here if you like...and know that my door is always open!
