My Very, Very First Post Ever!!

Alright this is it.  I'm all in. I am inspired to be creative. Right. Right??

Here goes nothing! 

I have thought for a very long time about beginning a blog. I have read numerous blogs for a long while (my favs so far Mama Laughlin, Young House Love, Miss Mustard Seed, Southern Hospitality, Perfectly Imperfect, Decor And The Dog to name a few but there's so many more!) 

I've been influenced by a number of trends and people.  But I finally decided I wanted to be on the other side..


What would I blog about? 

Would anyone actually follow me ?

Would anyone care what I have to say?

Then I realized what the heck, even if it's just me writing to myself as a way to chronicle this life of mine, I'm going to dive in and do it. Who knows? Let's see where it goes. Wanna come too?

That brought up even more questions.. 

Will I have wings? 

Will I stumble and fall?

I think I'm funny, will they?

Can I write posts that appeal to an audience of more than just me?

Can I even write all???

You see where this is going. The answer to all of the above...yes (well I hope it's a yes to the last two questions, you'll let me know right? Be gentle with me).

So stay tuned and watch this journey of mine. My plan is to take you on this roller coaster ride show you what interests me. Decorating my home, cooking for my loved ones, creating how-to projects.  I fully expect that this blog will evolve over time as I find my way through and I'm hoping that you will be there along for the ride.

So welcome, I would love to get to know each of you and for each of you to get to know me.

Let's get this party started!!

Hugs and Kisses,
P.S. How did I do?


  1. Hi Nicole, it's Cindy from diybeautifyblog. Wow, you were right.. we might share the same brain cells ;) It is a very daunting task, starting a blog. I have hopes and dreams (will I ever be as big as Miss Mustard Seed or Karianne from Thistlewood Farm?) HA! It's good to aspire to greatness, right? I am excited to make friends in the blogging community, and am heading over to follow you right now. Thanks for reaching out!

    Hugs, Cindy

    1. Cindy, I'm so glad you came by for a visit! I too dream big (maybe one day I can aspire to Miss Mustard Seed status)! Cheers to us!!!



I would love to hear from each of you! If something strikes your fancy please let me know!
