(my blogging philosophy)
Hi, I'm Monica and below is a picture of my family. I am glad you stopped by! I am new at this mom thing but I love it
Why I blog
I started my blog with the same intentions as most. I wanted one place where family and friends could check up on us and see current pictures. When I first started my blog it was a hard time for us because we had been trying for months to have a baby and had been unsuccessful. When we finally became pregnant we lost the baby. After that my blog took on a new form. I love to journal, so this became my journal, an outlet for my sadness, anger, and joy. I loved how I could share with others across the world in their journey's in life and I could invite others to share in mine. I am not good with words nor is my grammar always correct. But if you can overlook that and see my heart in my blog you might find we are kindred spirits.
I don't want you to get the wrong impression. I am not perfect nor is my family. This is a blog, not reality. My son is not always a smiling happy baby, my attitude is not always uplifting, my hair is not always "done". When at home you can usually find me in sweats, I try to pretend I don't see the ever growing laundry pile, and I should probably give our floor more attention that I currently give it.
I want my blog to be a place of honesty and a place to be transparent. Please feel free to comment your opinion or experience. After you leave a comment I will head over to your blog to check out your place!
What do I blog about?
I write posts on my relationship with Christ, marriage, my family, photography, parenting, personal experiences, homeopathic remedies,books, all things mommy, recipes, the occasional craft and my favorite is having giveaway posts.
Don't be lurking in the shadows. Introduce yourself, I'm glad you're here!
