I have followed numerous blogs off and on for over three years now. Out of all those that initially caught my attention, I remain faithful to only five: www.myvicariouslyfe.com, www.fashionbombdaily.com/, www.alittlebitoflacquer.blogspot.com/, www.afterthealtarcall.com, www.warmnotes.com/blog/. Why these five? Why not more? And most importantly, why join the ranks of millions of blogs already out there?

I’m glad you asked: What’s all the fuzz? Of the five blogs I follow faithfully, the first three are about fashion, food, travel or some combination therein. I wish I were more of a fashionista. But instead I tend to be more conservative and less risky in my attire. I lack severe creativity in the wardrobing department, so I stand on the sidelines admiring those who are more gifted in this area. Two things I do love and am good at are coordinating travel and cooking. I love to travel! I love seeing new places and experiencing new cultures. One of the most endearing ways for me to experience another culture is through their food! And finally, I indulge willingly in the contemplations of life, love, religion, spirituality and the daily quest to find our way to our happy place. In the essence of this indulgence, Sweet Thang (warmnotes.com/blog) and After the Altar Call feed my soul.

So why another blog? This blog is my gift to myself. A place where I can express all my loving — and not so loving — thoughts. A place of contemplation. A place where I can release into the atmosphere in hopes that someone will catch on and make something more worthy. This is my place to share a little bit of me in hopes that it touches a little piece of you … I have decided to use my own personal photos that I took long before this idea of starting a blog was planted. Enjoy the photos. Enjoy the words. Comment. Stay a while to contemplate. And most importantly, return again :-).
