Let's Start At The Very Beginning, A Very Good Place To Start

Here I sit, fifteen weeks pregnant today & I've finally decided to take that step into the realm of the "mommy/family blogger". Since deciding to start our family about five months ago, I had been thinking that someday I would want to share my family with the world -- I've been reading countless blogs (such as One Crazy Chick, Latte Mommy & Dooce) that deal with this whole family thing & I knew that one day it would be right for me -- that day shall be today, ladies & gents.

For a while I thought I should wait until the little one was born before delving into this world of which I most likely know less than I think I do, but then I thought: why wait? Why tiptoe on the outskirts when I should be out there participating? So here I am, ready to share, ready to learn & eager to join this online community of parents and families.

I hope that this blog will be a place for people to connect, to learn, to help & to support each other, as well as a place for some fun, some sharing & new ideas. I'm very open & very excited to start this ball rolling today -- look for some introductory posts coming soon & please comment! Remember: feedback is fabulous.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF BLOGGING! It's a crazy place, but I started my blog after my grandma dies and my teenage daughter was out of control. The people I have developed "relationships" with through blogging are the best! You will find a lot of support!
Congrats on the pregnancy... we will all follow along...

OMG! I'm so flattered to have been included in your intro post! And next to the likes of Dooce, no less! Sorry it's taken me so long to get here - we're on vacation with next to zero internet access. It's almost like being dead. Aaack!

Good luck with your new blog - I'm sure it will be great! :)
