First Things First

Welcome!  I’m glad you decided to check out my site.

I’ve been mulling over what I’d write in my first post for awhile now.  I realize I’m probably way over-thinking much of this, but I can’t help it.

Anyway…  I’ll start with just a little background.  I’d been thinking about starting a blog for some time now.  Everyone seems to be doing it (NOT that that’s ever a good reason to do something, but I digress).  I’d followed just a few blogs for awhile now and every time I read a post I thought to myself, “I could do this.”  I’d get excited, be a click away from starting a blog, and then fear I didn’t have anything “original” to say.  What was I going to write that someone hadn’t yet?

And then I realized it didn’t matter if I didn’t write anything “original.”  I wanted to start a blog.  But it wasn’t until Andrew came up with “The Frozen Pineapple” that I really got excited.  “Pineapple” because I like them and “frozen” because we were praying/thinking about moving to western New York.  So, I figured I’d wait and see if we were going to move, and then use the blog to chronicle our move and stay in touch with friends.

Well, we’re moving (yay!) so here goes!

  1. I’m so happy you are doing this! You’ve got more than enough original stuff in that head and heart of yours and I’m glad you are going to share it with us.

    I’m not quite as happy about the move…

  2. I can hear your voice in this! It is so amusing. Thank you for sharing, and letting us see that your house is not always perfect! It’s a relief…who could keep up?!

  3. Holly, I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reading your posts! Each author’s own unique personality comes out in the writing so you’ll never have to worry about coming up with something “original”! Like Emily said, every time we read a post it’s as if were sitting and talking with you… I can see your personality and even your face with each new entry you write… thanks for sharing and allowing us to remain a part of your lives even though you’ll be just a little farther away! We love you… Jen
