Welcome to my blog…Starting a blog has been a goal of mine for quite awhile. As a busy mom to twins, working full time as a high school English teacher and being married (full time! haha) as well, it was difficult to carve out the time to start one. Finding the extra time held me back….as well as thinking of a name! This summer, I made starting a blog one of my main goals to accomplish. Recently, I really started to focus on what to name the blog and I realized I should combine my past (my roots) with the present (my life) to form the name. I was born and raised in Missouri, so the ‘Show Me’ state will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve lived in Lexington, KY for fifteen years, and while you won’t hear me say, “Bless your heart,” my love for a good monogram and a “Hey, ya’ll” shows that I’ve picked up a bit of the south through the years, along with a sip (or two) of sweet tea.
My main hope for this blog is to be a creative outlet for myself while also sharing about my family, books I’m reading, or new recipes that I’ve tried. I began reading various blogs a few years ago, and there are some I read every morning to start my day. To be honest, some of these blogs have changed my life in both big and small ways, and if something I post can be of help to others, I figured why not give this blogging thing a try?
Thanks for stopping by and reading along…and hopefully, throughout time, more than possibly just my mom will be reading this. (Hey, mom!)
