Why NOW!

Let me be completely honest! I am scared to death to start a blog. I don't know why but fear is a tricky feeling. Who do I think I am? Well, I am just me and I am going with it  and diving in. I love these topics and I want to write about them. Channel some of my passion out there and hope it inspires other to do the same!

Why now though? Jimmy and I have been married for 7 1/2 years. We have 3 beautiful children who require most of our attention. For our 7 and a half years of marriage, we have owned 3 homes. I know, crazy! Well maybe not, but between 3 homes, 3 children, and all the normal chaos, I have not even thought about my passions or personal future. Maybe a little sad but not to me. I adore being a mom and cherish the gift of being able to stay home with them. I am also a nurse! Well not right now, but I am still a nurse. Up until last summer, I worked part-time as a pediatric nurse. While I love the job, I am thrilled to be home with my kids full time now!

We moved to our current home in August. When I tell you that my heart smiles when I talk about this home, I mean it. I have never felt more "at home" then I do here. I love the quaintness, the serenity, the character, the location, the neighborhood, everything. I finally feel like I have a home that is ours to keep. It encourages me to play with my passion more and really follow my heart. Sappy? I know, sorry! It's really that, before this, we always knew that the homes were not our "forever home" so I almost put off using my ideas, money, and time because I wanted to do it for us and not the next homebuyer.

So here we are....and although the house is no where near decorated or probably not even big enough for us, I desire to make it a home for us to share our most precious moments with our family. I can't wait to share them on here... ok, fine, maybe this is also an outlet to speak to adults and not children....or maybe I am hiding in my basement for my moments of quiet (as I sit here I hear children crying, running, laughing, and all of the above)...but either way, I feel passionate about filling my home with both things I love or things I have made...to make my family smile and feel loved. Isn't that what this life is all about??? :)
