A Little About Me

Hey there, I had an idea. I know... I know... there she goes thinking again, right? Okay, well here it is, although there's some information about me in the 'about me' section, I thought it might be nice to share a little bit more... just so that people would know me better. So for those of you that may be interested...

My Guilty Pleasure: Chocolate chip cookies 
I will take chocolate chip cookies any day over cake, pie, candy and ice-cream, (although I enjoy those desserts, too).

Something I always keep in the fridge: Cheese - I put a slice on our sandwhiches. I add a little to my scrambled eggs when I make breakfast. I top off a cracker with it... the list goes on.

Something Romantic That I've Never Done Before: Kissed in the rain. Okay, you know how at the end of some movies, what happens when the main character finally realizes what an ignoramous he or she has been for allowing the greatest love of their life just let slip through their fingers? Of course, after the realization hits, he or she races across town like a thoroughbred horse at a  Kentucky derby to stop that person from boarding a plane that was a half a second away from heading out of the country. Not to mention, it's almost always raining, but once they reunite, they kiss and... it's the kiss of all kisses, (and no, I don't watch too many movies). Now, it doesn't count if you'share a quick peck on the lips when it's lightly drizzling, that will cause major romance points to be deducted. I mean no umbrella's, no rain coat, no shelter, you're soaking wet and it's just you and your significant other locking lips in the middle of a downpour. I've never experienced it, but I see it in movies all the time and... what can I say... I'm a hopeless romantic.

I enjoy finding pictures showing Great Decor...  I can drool over pictures like these all day.

The last book that made me cry: This is how it ends, by Kathleen MacMahon.

I make a mean pan of lasagna.... I don't mean to toot my own horn, but... Beep! Beep!

Favorite TV Show: The Walking Dead... Don't judge... LoL

A quote I really like:

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on." - Robert Frost

Until next time... Have a great day.

You know, I've been blogging for almost 2 years now and I asked myself recently, why do I blog?

I will admit that I started blogging mainly because it seemed like it would be a fun way to pass the time and I was also hoping I'd meet some new friends along the way. I discovered something that was rather unexpected... once I got started, I was hooked! I found that as I continued writing more posts, I realized how much I loved sitting down to blog. I even remember the very first time I received a message in the comment section. I had been heard. Somebody was actually interested in what I had to say. I was elated!

Honestly, I realize I'm just a small speck in this great universe, but I'm also a mother, a wife, a sister and a friend. I work, I laugh, I love, I have a voice. Rambling on about the family, my day-to-day comings and goings, delicious recipes I've tried... it's a way to leave my footprints in the sand... to say that I exist. Like the Who's in Whoville, it's a way to say, I am here.

I often hear stories of people leaving items in time capsules in hopes of returning to them decades later, or even including letters so that someone in the distant future will know that they lived, who they were and what their life was like during the 50's, the 80's, or even right now in 2013 when they were on this side of the grass.

Well, that's kind of the idea... my blog will continue long after I've stopped writing.

So why do I blog?

1. To connect with people all over the world, amazing people that otherwise I would never get to know?
2. Because it's good to be heard?
3. Because it's a way to share with other's those things I find interesting?
4. Because it's fun?
5. To fill my proverbial time capsule and leave my mark on the world?
6. Because I think... therefore I blog?

The right answer is... all of the above. Blogging has become so much more to me since I wrote my very first post two years ago. Who knew?

So, now that you know my reasons, how about yours? Why do you blog?
