Take the first step

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness...The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too."

I had a short list of things that I wanted to do before I launched this blog: get a camera, make my own blog header, get the format right, add in all of my links and lists. But I can't wait for everything to fall into place, to be just so. I need to start it NOW. I will be in the middle of a project and think, “Oh, this would be perfect for a blog post.” Or “Get some good photos of this for the blog.” I have so many thoughts, ideas, inspirations floating around in my brain and I need to share them. So forget the list, things will fall into place as we go. So, we are off!

This blog will be a place for me to share my latest projects, posts photos of the progress and hold myself accountable for moving forward on becoming the hip homemaker that I want to be. Welcome and enjoy!

Here is our little house about 1 month before we closed on it. Our friends and family came over to "ooo" and "aahh" over it. You will see current pictures soon.

Thanks! i am so excited too. I just made myself sit down last night and gave myself a crash course in html basics by googling and copying and pasting code from other blogs. yikes! I printed off the directions for creating a custom header yesterday, so I am going to work on that tonight. Yea!
