Voyaging into the blogosphere...

Ok, so I know I'm a little behind the curve. The blogging "fad" is somewhat past it's prime already...people have moved on to the newest bells and whistles in Social Networking with Facebook and Twitter, and new sites and addictions yet to come I'm sure. Heck, I'm on Facebook too...can't really blame them! But I've been inspired to begin blogging to catalog my ponderings and my journey through a time of big decisions for our family.

About a year ago, before my son was born, I saw this neat feature on the news of "Mommy Bloggers" making a living blogging their ideas and I thought, "I could do that". But I put it off.

I absolutely love following the amazing blog of my friend Shelley Sprouffske (pictured on the left...check her out on blog.thesprouffskes.com) who pulls me into her life with her wit and her amazing photos. I thought, "I should do that". But I avoided it.

Then tonight I read my husband's recent blog post (at www.n8patrick.com) and his renewed decision to chronicle this time in our lives and I thought, "I will do that". So here I am.

I'm not really sure what this blog will be yet. In my mind it's a cool place with things that make you think about God, about life, about the world. Things I like and things I don't. And a way to let the world peek into my thoughts...we'll see how it evolves. Thanks for paying a visit!
