making the leap

well, the time has finally come.

I’ve had a xanga blog for lo these five years past. ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a good little bloggy it has been to me. I feel like I’m cheating on it by moving to this new site, but the truth is, more of the world reads blogspot and wordpress blogs and the interface is easier. So here I am.

A wonderful friend is going to help me make it more personal and add some fun touches here and there over time, but for now, this is it. I blog mostly for myself and the many friends and family members that live far away and want to keep up on our lives.

I’ve got some new ideas for this new blog in this new year of 2011 – I’m going to do a 52 week self-portrait challenge. Kinda narcissistic, but I think it will be fun. I’m also going to share some of my favorite recipes, post menus that I’ve put together, and do some fun giveaways. Nothing like $250 Anthropologie gift cards, but things I love and think others might too.

I hope you’ll follow me here if you read my xanga, and maybe I’ll make some new “online” friends too! Is it appropriate to get housewarming gifts for a new blog?

Just kidding! ๐Ÿ™‚

my life is full and beautiful because the Lord of all creation has seen fit to take me as His own. I have a wondeful husband, a sweet puppy, a beautiful baby boy, a lovely house in a small town, and two great jobs that allow me to mostly work from home. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee and vanilla lattes.

  1. wish i could have got to know you better on xanga.. i’m never sure how to know when others update when they move away from there. ? shows my computer smarts. and the reason i’ve yet to leave xanga myself.

    anyway. now that things are settling down here after our move i’m trying to get back into reading/ checking out blogs i’ve been meaning to, wanting to for months! ๐Ÿ™‚

    have fun fixing the new place up!!

  2. very nice… i have a hard time following anyone consistently right now, but, if you put your blog link in your info on facebook, i’ll be sure to find you easier :-).

  3. Sounds like fun, Ill be following. Oh, and if you figure out any fun blog making tips or tricks, let me know! I’d love to have a nicer looking page, but alas, I am not the most interweb savvy! ๐Ÿ™‚
