Howdy!

I have been contemplating writing a blog for some time now. I have a couple that I love to read and I always think to myself, "I really would enjoy writing one of my own", but I've never had the time or the self discipline to do so. I know that a blog doesn't have to be written on everyday, but I was almost sure that it wouldn't get more than one post a month. BUT now that I am graduated and have more free time on my hands, I think this is the perfect time to start one. There are many reasons I want to start a blog, and for those of you reading, I would love to share!
  1. I LOVE TO WRITE. It is as simple as that. In college people would HATE when they had 10 page papers due...I thrived on it. That isn't to say that I didnt' wait until the night or weeeknd before it was due...that part is even more fun, FAST WRITING! Ha.
  2. I want to eventually write for the world to read. I mean this is technically for the world to read, but I want to write books. Lots of books. I want to tell the stories of my life and share my life and my love with the whole world. So this is how I plan to begin. I know the more I write the better I can be at it, and hopefully that will help me finally start writing the main book I have been trying to start for so long now.
  3. I have heard from others it helps when trying to keep in touch with family and friends, so I am hoping that my family and friends will be able to read mine, and maybe even start one of their own. I know I have family and friends who have amazing lives and so many words of wisdom that they could share...hopefully something will come about!
  4. I want to blog. It doesn't get much simplier than that. I want to write down what I'm thinking, what is going on in my life, what I'm learning, who I am...all of the above!

As for the title of my blog, well you will just have to decide for yourself why I choose that title and what that title means. I cannot wait to embark on this journey (yes I am calling starting a blog a journey...I really believe it will be) and I cannot wait to see what comes of it.

This is a warning: There might be days I post more than once, and there might be days I don't post at all. There might be posts that you feel are tmi, there might be some posts that leave you with a million questions. There might be some posts that make you cry, and a lot more others that might make you laugh (even you who is reading this and saying that I'm not that funny....haha). The point is that I hope you never know what to expect but that you always enjoy and have an open mind and open heart to what I have to say. I am rambling now, but beware, I do that as well.

We will see where this blog takes us. Thanks & Gig'em for reading!
