I discovered I have a blog!
OH how I’ve missed you! I’m so sorry I’ve been away, but I’m back now, and ready to reconnect. I feel terrible about leaving you with a cliffhanger in my last post. I promised to have some answers for you in how to distinguish chatter from original thought. I’m still working on that, actually. But if you discover the answer before I do, you know where to find me.
What’s been going on you ask? Oh goodness, well, there’s a two-year-old we have, who doesn’t allow me to work on a computer while she’s awake, unless I don’t mind things like aszxcvddfk’m,.>Kk/mgge to randomly appear in my emails, blog posts and other professional pieces of work – either that, or have my work disappear completely. Where does that stuff go, anyway? She is adorable though, even when she’s covering my mouth saying, “Mommy, don’t talk. Go get my milk.” In which I promptly tell her not to do that as I grit my teeth through a pursed smile, and then, of course, I go get her milk.
I do have a great video of her though. She’s at the library with her Grandma and Grandpa, and she has some interaction with a little friend – a statue. She just loves statues… until they don’t give up the goods. You’ll see.
I’ve also taken a couple of online college courses through Stanford Continuing Studies. One about the world of blogging, and another on creative non-fiction writing. I highly recommend both! Ironically, I have been doing a tremendous amount of writing, but due to the content of these creative pieces, I’m not sure I want to release them into the world just yet. Although quite therapeutic, digging into the past – our history – what made us who we are today, can be quite an emotional undertaking.
I did however write a sentimental little piece about the first time my husband and I met. I think I’ll make that my next post, so stay tuned.
I’ve also been busy designing, developing and creating content for two other websites: one is for my day job as a Marketing Director for The Company Coach (a consulting firm that enhances the success of business owners so their time can be freed up to live the life they’ve worked so hard to create for themselves and their family), the other is for an incredible non-profit organization called Ragan’s HOPE (they provide amazing support to families who have children with medical issues, here locally and around the world!), which I do during my free time. Please feel free to visit those sites as well!
Thanks for being here, and for welcoming me back so freely. I look forward to what the future holds for us!
