My First Post as a "Blogger"

Hi there.  Let me introduce myself.  My name is Amanda.  I am not crafty, not a chef, not a writer, not funny, not artistic, not musical, not a photographer, not creative, not fashionable, and I don't sell anything on Etsy.  Whew... glad to get that out of the way.  Here's what I am:  Curious.  And I have a desire to be all of these things and more. 

But I haven't always been this way.  I've always been aware of what I've lacked, but until recently have been oblivious to the fact that I could change any of that.  And there's that one pesky thing that's always been holding me back from all the things I really want to do and the person I really want to be:


In my life, I have always felt like I've been waiting for something.  To graduate high school, or college, or get married, or have a baby, or get a job, or quit a job, or move away, or "insert life event" before I could learn how to do something I've always wanted to do, or go somewhere I've always wanted to go, or be the person I've always wanted to be.  Well guess what- I've graduated high school, I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics (closet math nerd right here), I've been married for 5 years, we have a 1 year old son, I have worked at a great job for the last year and half, I'm quitting that job on Friday to be a full time stay at home mom, and our family is moving to Washington DC so my husband can pursue his up and coming career as an attorney for a Non-Profit Organization.  All of those "wait until they happen" things are behind me.  So I've decided it's time to do all those things I've always wanted to do.

Well my friends, the wait is over.  I have a new motto!  Today:  Begin.  Tomorrow is no longer going to hold me back.  If I want to do it, I'm starting today.  There will many be many, MANY failures I'm sure.  Hopefully a handful of successes too.  One of the things I've always wanted to do is start a blog, so I'm putting my money where my mouth is- here it is.
