So here goes...

I have never written a blog before. I am not sure why I have decided to now, at 1:58am on a Thursday night, when I probably should be sleeping. However, there is no time like the present so here goes. ( You should also be warned I have horrible grammer and am the worst speller! Despite the fact that I was a journalism major for the better part of my college career.)

I want to blog about the little things in life, the things that are really important to me. The things I am passionate about. Love, Family, Sports, Music, Photography, Weddings!, fashion, but probably mostly about being a Wife and my day to day struggles within myself of being the wife I have always wanted to be and my needs as a business woman, and my dream of going back to school. Do not get me wrong. My most important role in life is to be a good wife, to love and care for my husband, my home, and my family (that consists of my 90 lb. Black Labrador and my Parakeet).

There is a time in life where you have to grow up and find that balance, this is that time for me.

I have been unemployed for 10 months and 28 days. It has been a time of great soul searching for me. I have the best husband in the world, he has never complained that I have not even sent out a single application for employment. He likes that I am home. We enjoy lunch together everyday and I love that I am learning to cook. I love being a wife, mostly because I love being married to Russell, he is honest, loving, sexy, and my "BFF!" (He thinks it is funny that I say BFF.) There is nothing that I enjoy more than traveling around the country and watching him coach and play soccer. But I am also proud of the man he has become, sacrificing his dreams at times to be good husband, and a provider.

I am for the first time in a long time reaching out to find things that truely fulfill me. I just recently found enough courage to, after a ten year hiatas, return to music. My husband says it has already changed me for the better, that I am happier. He is right. There is nothing that makes my soul so full as singing. I joined the Tusculum College Community Chorus, where I am in the process of learning 18 pieces of music for the Christmas Concert, and an undisclosed amount of music for the Thanksgiving Concert. I am also singing in the Madrigals production at our church, which I am sure will be at least 10 more pieces, and preparing to sing at Russells cousins wedding in November. So that is a minimum of 31 pieces of music, needless to say I am always singing!

Having all this time off has also given me the opportunity to travel quite a bit more. I have been blessed to have spent a good part of this year in Morgantown, WV with my baby sister Kelly and her fiancee Nick, at my Mothers home in Gauley Bridge, WV, and just returned from a fabulous 15 day trip to Europe. That I will have to fill you in on some other time.

Well I am not sure how I did for my first blog, but I have a feeling this could be addictive.

Til next time!
