It has been a long time coming. I had this dream…a wish to be more in control of this chaotic thing we call life. I wanted a more creative outlet that was, well, more me than I had felt my life had become. Between kids, family, ball games, school, carpool lines and then my job (which I at one time loved but it had become a resentment over the years), there was no time for the special moments in life that let you feel connected to your family and loved ones. I was living in the haze of moving from one thing to the next just trying to get it all to fit into the day before i headed off to work the night shift. I knew I had to find something else that would allow me to be at home and more available to my family. There was no question in my mind. I knew i wanted to start a blog. It would allow me to connect with other creative minded folks like myself and hopefully, over time, would become my new job, but i wanted to do it the right way and do my research first (trust me, the journey of my process will be a post(s) in it self). I am soooo proud to say…FIREFLIES & MAGNOLIAS IS FINALLY A REALITY! I hope everyone will enjoy my posts and follow my new journey as a blogger!
