I promised myself that my first blog posting would not be a long-calculated, edited, or mind-tortured enterprise. I promised myself it would just flow from my head like the journal entries do when I write them as I lie in bed at night. And so far it is just that. Coming up with a name for the blog was a challenge, as I have not yet decided the full intent or objective to creating this blog. I just wanted to do it. I am not a trained writer, a natural poet, or anything remotely related to these. I am a young, married, generally happy, athletic woman (and aspiring professional - though not in athletics!) who has found herself at yet another of life's crossroads. What might that crossroads be you ask? Well, it's not so much as a crossroads as it is a milestone, for I am 12 weeks pregnant with my first child and am so looking forward to entering the world of motherhood. Parents have been told of the wonderful news, as well as siblings and some of our close friends. The news will soon be traveling to our grandparents, aunts, uncles, and the rest of our world, and I am sure that I will provide some update on the receipt of this news.
And with that, I will close my very first blog posting, as it is time to eat yet again and enjoy the company of my husband before it's time for bed.
