Today is my first post! Today is also my 25th birthday. Wow . . . 25. I started thinking today, there were so many things I was going to do before I was "all grown up", and I haven't done that many. But there are a lot of things that I have done that weren't in my "plan" when I was 10. For example . . . I am married (10 year old me keeps going "yuck!") and I go to work every day (10 year old, and 25 year old me says "boo") and I am basically a normal, everyday person. That was DEFINITELY not in my plan. But I love my life just the same. In spite of a regular 9-5 job, I have several passions. I love to quilt and sew (I'm not that good at it, but I love it anyway. That's why they call it a hobby, right?) and I am learning to knit and embroider. I also have a fat cat name Ralphie
(she's a girl . . . don't ask) that you will probably see a lot of pictures, because she is incredibly entertaining. Here she is eating my birthday flowers. I never had an inside pet before, and she is hilarious! I've decided to blog because . . . well . . . everyone's doing it! (I'm totally a sucker for peer pressure!) I hope this blog will help me to work on my writing skills, as well as organize my crafting. I'm pretty good at starting projects, but finishing them takes years! Maybe you guys will help me stay on task! Also, you will have to be patient with me, I'm a little technology impaired, so this may be slow going.
