As you may have noticed, yesterday I decided to give my blog a little makeover! There are still a few things I need to fix and add, but overall, I am so excited that the blog is finally feeling a little more modern. I couldn’t believe it, but I had literally had the same background for seven years. It was definitely time to give the blog a little TLC! As you may have gathered, I’m not tech savvy at all, so it took me a bit of time to get things somewhat up and running. The upside of that is the whole process gave me lots of time to think about blogging, and I couldn’t help but be a bit sentimental.
I’ve blogged for eight years, but if you read some of the earlier posts (and quite frankly, some of the not so older posts), you can see that it has taken me a while to find my voice and purpose of this blog. I started blogging right as I began teaching and this blog follows me through that time, the marriage to my husband, our move to the DC area, a new job outside of teaching, and the birth of our daughter. I have finally come to the realization that this is my place to record memories of our little family and also to connect. Especially now that I am a stay-at home mom, even this introvert appreciates the interaction this blog provides. Thank you for reading and all of your encouragement and support along the way!
