Hello, Blogging World! There's a New Kid in Town.

Welcome to my brand new blog! I have so many things I can't wait to share, from crafts to recipes to all-things-baby and more. So, why am I joining the blogging world? It's actually something I've wanted to do for quite some time. I have many interests and hobbies, and I love sharing my experiences with friends. Let me tell you a little bit about myself...

I live in the beautiful city of Nashville, Tennessee with my husband Adam of three years, and our soon-to-be baby boy William Alfred, due to arrive in the coming weeks! We have a strong marriage built on Christ and lots & lots of love. We have an amazing "extended family" at Hillsboro Church of Christ in Forest Hills.

After five years in the classroom teaching 2nd and 3rd grade and one year as an elementary math coach, I decided to hang my teacher's hat to become a full-time mommy. So far, I've enjoyed a typical "teacher summer" with days at the swimming pool, travel, and crafty projects. I don't think it will really hit me that I'm not teaching this year until all my teaching friends are back at work this week and posting on Facebook about their wonderful classes full of amazing students and how excited they are about the new school year. However, I feel confident that once William is here and I get to spend all day, every day with him, any unsure feelings will just melt away.

I have always been a very busy person, and I am happiest when my calendar is covered with appointments and plans. When choosing the title for my blog, I wanted something that would allow me to write about a number of topics. Adam and I love to travel both domestically and internationally, so I will certainly be writing about our future excursions. The world of crafts has always interested me, so I love diving into new projects on a regular basis. Now that I am home full-time, I finally feel like I have time to explore the world of cooking and baking. Becoming a new mom means you can rest assured I will be blogging about all things baby boy, and this fall means my favorite season is season!

Whew! My first post...I can't believe I'm finally launching my blog! I can't wait to share so many things...beginning with a recent project that nearly did me in...reupholstering the nursery glider. Stay tuned! :)
