And so it begins…

Here it is. The first blog post.

(Tap, tap)

This thing on?

Welcome! Come in, relax, grab a glass of wine and don’t forget to tip the servers.

I’ve been toying with an idea about a blog for some time…does seem to be the hip thing now a’days. Lots of my friends have blogs and I enjoy reading them. But, just because my friends do it is no reason for me to start—unless we are talking about underage drinking or jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, of course.

Sorry Mom, peer pressure is a beast.

Anywho, back to the blog: I just felt like I had something to say. What I needed to say exactly, well, that was what made me pause. I write all day long as a Communications Manager for a mega conglomerate. It’s interesting but it’s certainly not what I'd put in the fun column. And, amongst all the memos and comm plan grids, it just felt like
my writing voice was getting weaker by the day.

So, I took the plunge and got a page. And, then it sat blank…for a while. I just couldn’t come up with my niche in the bloggie world. Do I write about food, cooking, wine, marriage, my obsession with Ferbies? Just kidding on the last one. Wanted to make sure you were still with me.

Then it came to me over some beers with my husband (aka “the hubs”). Life’s pretty random; I’m certainly random. Ipso facto—the site will be collection of all the randomness that comes flying at us any given day. It’ll be a sort of stream of consciousness with stories and observations that make this life worth livin’.

I know, hard to contain your excitement, dear (one) reader, but do please try.

Just so we all get where this is going, here are some ground rules I pinky swear not to break:

1.Although we are starting a family, it won’t all be about ultrasounds and kid stuff. I’m sure all that hubbub will make an appearance (it is what is happening in my life), but it won’t dominate the site. For all the singletons out there—you’re welcome.

2. No political diatribes…unless, of course, it’s for equal rights. If you aren’t for equal rights for everyone, do me a favor and skedaddle off this site. Not trying to be rude…I just don’t think you and I have much to say to each other. Love, happiness and rainbow puppies to you.

3. Remember: I’m a department of one. Story suggestions and kind comments are always welcome.

Let’s roll.
