It’s Thursday May 16th, 2013 and I just googled “how to start a blog”. I guess I’ve thought about starting a blog before but thought when would I ever have the time and who would ever read it.
Time seems so precious these days. We’re all so busy and life seems to be passing by at warp speed. Most days I feel like my head is spinning and I’m constantly moving (I’m hoping that counts as exercise). I live in Tsawwassen, 45 minutes south of Vancouver, with my husband Steve and our two daughters, Livia and Sylvie. We’re busy like everyone else, trying to figure out this thing called life and have some fun along the way.
I know nothing about blogs. I just learned my first tip, Blog is the shortened version of Web log. I’ve read a few posts here and there, mostly baking blogs and the odd one I’ve stumbled across looking for recipes. To me a blog is where you document and share the things you love. I love all kinds of things. My family, my friends, baking, cooking, entertaining, planning parties, mini stuff, vanilla beans, peonies, glass bottles, cookbooks, I could go on and on… Sometimes I feel like if I could just cook or bake or entertain every day that would make me smile.
So what will this blog be about? Not 100% sure yet but I do know it will be about me and my loves, all the things that make me smile. Sharing moments in time. Sharing love through food. Sharing the journey I’m on. I find more and more I am trying to rid my life of junk. I’m pretty disgusted with our food industry and I’m really trying to be aware and make smarter choices for myself and my family. I try to make most things from scratch and buy organic, fresh, local products when I can. When they’re available and affordable. I feel like it’s time to make changes in our society about what we’re putting in and on our bodies. We really do have a choice. And every little bit helps. Every time someone stops buying and supporting something that is not healthy for us we are all better off. I feel like we are in a time of change and I feel lucky to be a part of it. I’m excited to be on this journey of learning and sharing and along the way trying to live a better and healthier life. I always tell my daughters, we’re always learning, and we are, all of us, everyday.
So welcome to me and my loves. A place to share the things that inspire me and things I love. I’m not sure how often I will post but I hope you enjoy when I do. We all lead busy lives these days and I hope the moments you take to read my blog help inspire you to do everything from your heart and have fun! I hope you enjoy me and my loves!
