Pinterest Projects

I’m really not a huge Pinterest person. I get very overwhelmed by all the cuteness, and let’s be honest, I am NOT crafty. Thankfully, I have a builder husband who can take a picture and recreate it! So, when we decided to build, I became a Pinterest person for a few months. I thought some of you would be interested in seeing a few of our Pinterest Projects.

First, as an update – we are really enjoying our new home. Nathan has a huge gift. God has blessed him with a beautiful craft. He can take an old home and make it look brand new and he can also take a piece of land and build a beautiful new home on it from scratch. We decided to build from the ground up this time. A lot of people have asked for pictures, and I may post some in a blog post eventually. We shall see! If you would like to see my husband’s work, you can visit his website, Continue reading

So why blog?

There are more than a slew of blogs out there. Each one telling us 18 ways we are eating incorrectly, 15 ways we can be a better mom, and 10 ways we should be a better wife. It is overwhelming at times. So, why add a new one to the blogosphere? I wanted to share some of my thoughts:

1. I have been considering writing a blog for a long time, but was way too scared to take the plunge. Fear of what other people would think. Fear of saying the WRONG thing. Fear of not being the best writer in the world. I end sentences with prepositions and use fragmented sentences. Sometimes, I don’t put commas where they are supposed to go. But, I have always been intrigued with the idea of writing down my thoughts, writing down things that we use in our household that work for us, sharing recipes that are easy and healthy. So there’s that.

2. My anxiety is getting out of control. I know that others struggle with the same thing, so I want to channel all of that negativity into something positive. A way to help others. Writing is therapeutic to me as it is to many others. Instead of worrying, I will write. However, I don’t want this to become a place for me to be narcissistic. So the point is not to share everything I am struggling with all of the time. Just enough info to help those who may need it. I guess I will have to find a balance. I want to be an avenue of positive thinking. To help us find our daily joy. This won’t be a place for anyone to feel guilty for not being the mom or wife or friend she is supposed to be.

3. I just left my full-time job as a theater teacher at a local university. I need something else to put my mind to. Otherwise, when Logan naps, I tend to sit on the couch and not do much. I want to keep my mind focused and sharp, and I want to still utilize my creativity, although in a different way. So, I hope to use my theater background to help creatives who may look at my blog too.

So, that’s why I decided to do this now. If you are interested in this type of journey, I look forward to interacting with you.

Here’s to a day full of joy!
