As I was trying to establish the very important name of this blog I tried to think of all of my favorite things. My first preference was Lovely Thoughts. . . that was taken. The next name I went to I think was, Grits! That was taken! Aah! Then GritsnCheese. . .can you believe that was taken!! Ok, so I tried my real favorite, gritsnbacon and it was available, but being on a diet and all I should probably not tempt myself too much with having to type that every day! So I asked Abby Kaye (my five year old) her opinion on the matter, thinking she might have some wisdom, as she was the only one home at the time, and her response was Isabelle! hmmm, I will have to think about that one. . .then I saw on the floor beside us, her adorable "clappy shoes" as she sweetly refers to them especially when she is looking for them and I knew that was the name. Why? Because I like clappy shoes too. I remember dressing up in my granny's clothes when I was a little girl and prancing around in her clappy shoes. I am just one of a long generation of clappy shoe wearers!
So the purpose of this blog, whether you are a "clappy shoe" wearer or not, is to have a place to unwind, process things, take a look into your soul, and kick back and relax with me. I have never been a person to relax but I need this blog to help me with just that. It can be a place where I process my days and even keep a record of my days. I have always journaled. . .I'm serious. . .always journaled since I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I still have some of those very important journals. . .hopefully I can share those with you sometime. Quite entertaining, they are! But since I have been married and had kids it has been difficult to keep that a priority in my life. There have been times or periods of darkness where I have journaled but the good times are seldom recorded. I want this blog to be a celebratory one as well!
My typing has gotten much faster since I am almost at the end of my first cup of coffee for the morning. . .need to grab another and get started for the day!
