Starting (somewhat) fresh

I enjoy blogging. I really do. Life just often gets in the way. :) Last night I was reading a book and found myself really wanting to share quotes from it, and expound on my thoughts about it.

So here we go (again).

This blog you are reading is actually a brand new blog. Don't let the archives on the sidebar fool you. I wanted to start somewhat fresh, so I started a new Blogger blog, but wanted to keep my old posts from my other two blogs. I was ecstatic to discover I could import my posts from both Did you hear the singers Roer? and

Did you hear the singers Roer? has been a place for me to just share things about life in and around my family. Almost a year ago, I joined a blogging community and online "class" that gave me one year of web hosting and my own domain name for free. I decided to see if I'd be able to create a niche blog that would generate a little bit of income -- at least enough to pay for the yearly hosting and domain name once the time for renewal came up. It was a ton of fun, but I didn't make a single dollar. So I've decided to allow that hosting and domain to expire, and have moved back over to Blogger (which is free!), and start somewhat fresh with a somewhat new blog.

I'll still write about the home, garden, and cooking like I did at, and I'll still write about my family and love for books and music like I did at Did you hear the singers Roer? So I invite anyone who knows me personally, as well as anyone interested in an almost-30-year-old, happily married, mom of almost-two kids, who desires to spend her days in the sweet sunshine and attempt to live the simple life, to follow my journey!

If you're new, take the time to check out my previous posts via the archives and labels in the sidebar. I hope you'll like what you see and decide to stick around. :)

Spend my days in the sweet sunshine
Rock in my swing and watch my garden grow
Know that I'll always have someone to hold
Oh I wanna live the simple life...
