About Me

 And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud 
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

What do people usually write in these things? I mean, I know the general stuff; I like to cook, I am a knitter, I have dreams of my own sustainable green home with organic vegetable gardens, chickens running around, angora bunnies in their cages, and a few kids running around the yard. But, that's unfortunately not my reality right now. But ya know what? That's okay.

I recently divorced my husband of 10 years, under some pretty horrible circumstances. But, I can honestly say that I am completely thrilled to be moving forward. I felt very stagnant. I wasn't living, I was surviving. Now, I can focus on reinventing myself, to become the person, the woman and the mother I want to be. And it's been a wonderful and exciting ride so far.

Not only am I finding myself, but I am trying to become a better Mama. If anything good came out of my marriage, it was my daughter. She is truly the light of my life, and the center of my universe. I love her like mad. 

I don't know where this blog will go. I am going to play it by ear. But, I promise honesty. I promise that it won't always be rosy. And I can promise you that I will be trying my best to fly solo with grace. I did say I would be trying. ;-)
