Hold on to your hats… I don’t want to get all wild on you with my originality, but I’m starting something called a “blog.” Have you ever heard of blogging? Don’t feel bad if you haven’t. This must have started last month when Matt and I got cutting edge with Internet on our phones. (Yes, Granny Clampett, on. our. phones.) Snowball effect, perhaps. Can’t stop this trendsetter! I kid. Actually, I follow lots of blogs. When my sister recently started a savings blog (hers is super useful, unlike the outlook for mine), I felt kind of inspired to join in the fun.
As much as I’d love to have a single creative passion or a marketable skill to blog about, like say photography or design, I most assuredly do not. You can call me a jill of
all some trades and master of none, I guess. Still, I (like most of us) wear many different hats in my everyday life as a woman, wife, mom, and friend. I figure I will mostly post about life in these “hats.” So I’ll just be sharing some random thoughts and ideas as I go about my hat-wearing days.
My first thought was to call the blog “Hat Hair” …kind of cute, but I was won over by the double entendre of “Hold on to your Hats.” As the expression suggests, marriage, mommyhood, and life can just plain be a wild ride! More than that, though, I am learning to hold my hats close to my heart in the sense of embrace. I am truly grateful for the roles God has entrusted to me. My goal for this blog is to learn as I share. And my hope is that the process of posting will inspire fresh motivation and intentionality for me (and maybe you too) to sport my hats with style and grace.
I hope you’ll read along. And leave a comment or two along the way; I’d love to add your blog to my reader.
Hold on to your hats!
PS- See you next time for a description of my first pass at what to expect around here. Oh, and more hat puns, likely. :)
