WELCOME to my BLOG

Welcome, Everyone, to my Thought Blog.  I am the featured blogger on SITS today!

My name is Emily and I am a thirty-something wife and mother that began blogging back in 2007 to chronicle my family's life.

After a few years of documenting just my day to day activities, I felt the need to start another blog that focused on different aspects of my life.  It's been a struggle keeping my creative juices flowing, and I sometimes slack in posting on a regular basis, but overall it's been a great experience for me.

And I'm really happy you have taken the time to visit my little corner of the Internet.

I'd love to gain new readers as a result of being the featured blogger, so here's some ideas about what I blog about.

First, I love and adore music, so every Monday {except for today, of course} I feature a song, artist, album that I really like.  Or, it could be a song my daughter really likes.  Or, just something that revolves around music.

Second, I love to take pictures using the app Instagram; hence, INSTAGRAM wednesdays.  This is basically a way for me to get in a post without actually having to write anything.  I co-host this meme with my very good friend, Karen.

And last, I write a lot about my marriage and about being a mom.

I definitely don't think I write anything earth-shattering, but I try to be as raw and real as possible.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Please come again!

  3. Real is the best way to be, no? I write about NOT being married and being a mom :-) I haven't done the Instagram thing... I dislike change, so I'm always late to the party :-)

    Happy SITS Day!

  26. Happy SITS day! And yes, creativity is a "drive" in us. That's why I blog. It's my way of being creative. Sometimes I crochet, sew, cook, etc., but my fave way to "create" is gardening.

  35. Nicely done, Happy SITS! I like your previous post about being nice to other moms. I'm totally there. I also plead with my non-child having friends to have some compassion for parents who are out and about with their kids, because no one wants to hear the screaming.
