First of all, I am so excited to start this blog. I have been wanting to blog for such a long time, but for one reason or another (excuses), I’ve never done it. Correction: I have sort of done it. My blog lasted all of one day and one post four years ago, and I don’t even remember what the name of it was or what I thought I was going to be writing about. All my life I’ve been a writer. When I was younger I always kept a journal. I sometimes wrote poetry, a 13 year old’s hilarious version of poetry, but mostly I just tried to make sense of the world around me. I have always kept that interest in writing. I even have two degrees in reading and writing. Eventually though I had to grow up, and I stopped writing. When you become part of the world and you have to figure out a career, it gets hard to take time for yourself and the things you love doing. But I AM DOING IT. I apologize if the capitals were very shouty, but your girl is excited.
When you start a blog, the thing that every website and every person tells you is to find one super specific thing to write about and stay in your lane. I have too many things I like to talk about and think about to pick just one. So, I hope you don’t mind if we talk about a lot of stuff here. For example, I love makeup. Seriously, I love it. I have way too much, and I want more. I also love my husband, and my dogs, and my family, and traveling, and Netflix, and my friends, and you get the point. We’re going to call this a “lifestyle blog” so I can just write about all of it. Pretty clever, if you ask me.
Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a deep thinker, and sometimes I think I’m really funny. I’m probably neither. You be the judge. I need somewhere to write and here it is. I want to share with you, and I want you to share with me. Maybe together we can make sense of the world. Or maybe we can figure out the best eye shadow pallet of 2018. I’m game for either.
