So, today was my day off and I decided to use it to read some more blogs, yay! Anyways, I came across this blog and I've been lurking reading catching up on it. What can I say...I'm kind of OCD and like to start things from the beginning. So sue me! ;-) This blog, Lovelace Files (which I just realized I had been reading as "Lovelace FLIES". Dyslexic much?) is soooo awesome. I haven't quite caught up to the present, but I'm close...just started 2012. Anyways, the author, Kathy, is suuuuuper creative and talented when it comes to DIY. Like, seriously. Some of the things she, and her husband, have created are just incredible! As are some of the things she's mentioned/linked from other DIY blogs. All of this immense craftiness has my fingers itching to try something, anything!

To be honest, I did get my big toe a little wet in craftiness this past Christmas when I tried knitting a scarf. But, with the huge move and everything, it just got pushed to the side. :-/ Now I kind of want to start knitting again, but it's Florida. I really don't think a knit scarf would be very practical right now. But I will find something that will get my creative juices flowing. I used to write, but I want to try something that is a little more physical and requires more manual labor. Basically, something that I can show off better. ;0) Any suggestions?

Another thing Kathy's blog had me wondering was: "What do I want this blog to be like? To focus on? Is it going to have a theme? Or just express my complete randomness?" Well, since I asked myself that so nicely, my brain decided to be cooperative and helped me realize that I want it to really be a reflection of me. As things stand right now, I'm kind of all over the place. I'm still in school, albeit graduating soon. I'm in the beginning (after being delayed for 6 months) stage of planning a wedding. I'm probably going to be uprooting my life as it is now to be with my future husband when he gets into the Air Force, wherever they decide to send him. I'm trying to make myself into a healthier person. And I want to better my relationship with God and my family. There are so many important aspects to who I am right now, aspects that, as minor as some may seem, will shape the adult I am in the future. They'll shape who I am as a wife, sister, daughter, mother, and child of God. I want to document my change, the good and the bad, the exciting and the mundane, everything, so I can look back on my life and be proud of who I am/was. Warts and all.

And wow, cue a little bit of tears there.....

....though I have no idea why. Oh well. Ciao and until next time!

P.S. I really need to find my camera cord because I reeeeeeally want to add some pictures to my blog. :/


  1. Can't wait to see the pictures you have taken..welcome to the blogging world!

    1. Thank you! A lot of them are personal pictures from the last few months, but they represent all the fun things the future Mr. and I have been able to do since he got here!

  2. I really want to see some pictures! I'm stoked that you're blogging. I love meeting new people through this crazy writing outlet.

    I do have a little tiny bit of advice on the blogging side. Let your blog grow with you. I started blogging in 2007 and my blog had nothing to do with the Air Force besides the fact I was married to it. I wrote random things that came to mind or about stuff that happened during my day that ticked me off, made me laugh, etc. It was only a few years ago that Air Force. Wife. Life. was born. I can't even remember all the other names my blog was before now. See... Growth. ;-)

    I can't wait to learn more about you and your future Mr. Air Force and all the fun places that life will take you both.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you don't mind if I'm a regular fixture on yours.


    1. @Mrs. Sergeant

      Thank you for the advice! And let me just say, reading the two new comments I had today definitely brightened my afternoon, so thank you for that (and probably more on that later).

      And welcome new, regular fixture! Lol.
