In which I make a beginning

Hello, and welcome! Come on in, I’ll give you the tour. Excuse the mess… still unpacking. Trying to figure out where everything’s going to go. The posting boxes feel so big and white. I’ll try to get something up fast, just so it doesn’t feel so empty.

I have a blog… I have a blog. I have a blog. I have a blog. This is going to take some getting used to. As did: I am a wife, I am a mother, I am never going to have a maid.

I have a blog.

So, I moved to this blog that henceforth when I have something to share that doesn’t fit in a Facebook status, I have a place to unload. Also, so that – once I have managed to unload the previously mentioned somethings – I might stop talking to myself when I’m alone in my car. And finally, so I have a place of my own as a writer.

And that’s the main thing. Because, just as “I have a blog” takes some getting used to, I’m still getting used to, “I am a writer.” I’ve been writing for years, but apparently without making it official.

I have a blog, I am a writer. Welcome.


  1. Your doing a great job! keep it up :)

  2. I love your perfect life...I bet you have an AMAZING sister who makes it possible to be so happy:) You are SO lucky! Good job on the blog. It looks...great! I mean except of course for the absence of the official dedication to your sister (you know your inspiration and all) but I'm sure it's just still packed...I can't wait to see it once you unpack:))

  3. Congrats on the blog! I'm going to add it to my blogroll on MY blog so I can keep tabs! Yay!! :)

  4. Hello Denise, I enjoy your articles in the Herald and was happy to find your blog. I love your storytelling and look forward to hearing more.
