With that said…allow me to introduce myself in case you’re visiting from said blog party, or if you’re just new to my blog and would like to know what this blog is all about!
“Rookie to Rock Star”
I felt this was an appropriate title for what I wanted to convey on my blog. I discovered the following quote(s)* that I think explains some of the reasoning behind my blog:
“Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.”
– Morihei Ueshiba (Japanese athlete 1883-1969)
I began blogging nearly 2 years ago starting in May. It all came about when a friend asked for a recipe. I thought, “Why not post some of the fun ideas I’ve come across for others to share?” I mean, I need/needed all the help I could get when I first moved out on my own. If you read my summary above, I didn’t even know what a clove of garlic was!
So, my blog consists of me sharing my growth with you – in all areas of life. Parenting, cooking, baking, wife-ing, fashioning, celebrating, partying, reading…any area I happen to be growing in! I’m passionate about learning (I guess that’s why I’m a former teacher).
Join in learning with me…hopefully I’ll help us laugh along the way.
*Here were some other quotes I loved that convey similar thoughts, if you’re a quote type person!
“When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
- C.S. Lewis
"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious." - Albert Einstein
“The knowledge of all things is possible”
-Leonardo da Vinci
