It's DONE!!

Here it is: still empty, but complete.


It's bright, warm and cozy.

Best of all, it's 

A special thanks goes out to my husband, Mark, who spent countless hours designing and building this space for me to creatively express myself.

I promise; it will be worth every second!!

Guilt and Shame Need Not Apply

I don't blog regularly.

I feel bad about it.


Because "they" say I should.

But who's "they"?

I guess I'd call "they" the promotion and/or blog experts.  You know, the ones who advise you on how to get and keep followers?

Well guess what? "They" don't live my life. "They" don't grapple every day with trying to balance it all out.

But I do.

So, for 2012, I have a saying: GUILT and SHAME need not apply HERE!

I am going to do the very best I can and be proud of it.

(I blogged more in 2011 than in 2010, so YAY ME!!)

I am going to stop reaching for perfection.

(No more of that: MUST post or else...)

This year, I think this blog is really going to focus on what I read and how it benefits me.  It could be a writing skill I'm studying or the way a book touched my heart.  Either way, I want to have a heck of a lot more fun with what I think.  But most importantly: GUILT and SHAME shall not be included!!
