Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog, where, as you may have gathered, I write about the food I cook and eat, music I love, places I have traveled, and this ever-changing life I’ve been blessed with.
This is a place for me to write, to refine my craft. I share it as an encouragement to you, my reader. And I want to remind myself of some of the beautiful things in my life, and give thanks.
I don’t employ a personal stylist or a cleaning service or a professional photographer with fancy lighting. (No surprise.) All my photos are straight-out-of-camera or very minimally edited with my very nonexistent skills. I do try to stage things nicely for pictures, but sometimes there are crumbs or fingerprints that I just don’t care to deal with. You deserve to see my life in all honesty. I appreciate pretty things, but they often overlap with the messy, even ugly. I’m trying not to let that keep me from capturing them and sharing.
The same goes for writing. I will strive to write honestly about my life. Keep in mind, though, I am sharing the best parts. The rest just doesn’t make for good reading. Also remember, this is my blog, not my journal. I have dark days, but they probably won’t appear here. I try not to vent, or slander, or complain on the internet. I want this space to be edifying, which means I won’t share things about my family that could embarrass them now or in the future.
