So, earlier this evening I was trying to finish up my first post before a friend came over after church - and I totally forgot to say why I had named my blog "The Way I Am." First of all, I love Ingrid Michaelson and I enjoy her song of that name. (And I discovered her before the song was in the Old Navy sweater commercials. So there.) I think her voice, songs, and attitude are just fantastic. I even used her remake of Elvis' "Can't Help Falling in Love" for my bridesmaids to walk down the aisle to. Look it up. It's completely beautiful. Anyway, "The Way I Am" is my ringtone for when the husband calls me...even though he sometimes makes fun of how much I listen to Ingrid. What? I know. I try not to get mad. ;) Back to topic...I thought it was a good name for a blog. Don't be expecting overly personal blogs from this girl, but I plan to write about recipe triumphs (and disasters), music I love/hate, TV I love/hate, things I believe in and why, and the like. Should be fun!
I have long wondered about entering the world of blogging...I've always enjoyed writing and I absolutely love reading other people's blogs. But apparently I needed a push. And my friend Mindy gave me that push just today...in fact, she gave me a deadline. By March 30th (Or does it have 31 days? 30 days hath September, April, June, and November. All the rest have 31. Got it.) I must have started my blog. I promised. And didn't even wait until March 31st, as my procrastination tendencies might have led me to do! =)
My life is a work in progress, which is how I think God intended it to be. I love spending time with my husband Jeremy and am trying every day to be a good Christian wife. I am totally intrigued with cooking (especially baking) and enjoy feeding family and friends. I appreciate symmetry and design; correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation; and lovely harmonies in music. I feel more than kindly toward helpful people and strive to be one also. I adore laughing. I'm terribly glad I'm not colorblind. I like to be positive.
