Today marks my entrance into the world of blogging. I have been wanting to start a blog for years now, but I never managed to find the time to do it. That is all changing today and I am going to start blogging about the daily rhythms of our family life.
So what is this blog going to be about?
Well, first and foremost, it is a place for me to record my ideas and inspirations. It is also a way for me to connect and share with family and friends, old, new, and yet to be found.
So what ideas and inspirations will I be sharing with you?
- Our transition towards parenthood
- Recipes I am trying or have recently made
- Information and conversation about pregnancy and birth (especially for the next 5 months)
- Projects I am currently working on
- Thoughts and ideas about family and child activities
- Parenting topics and parent development
- Child development topics
- And anything else that is weighing heavily on my mind
So who am I?
Well, I am an educator by training and passion, my background is in child development and family education with an emphasis on parent education. After completing my masters degree I worked as a parent educator in the Early Childhood Family Education program in our area. But, when my husband and I decided to start a family of our own we made the collective decision that I would transition to being a homemaker. So for the next 20 weeks or so I will be a housewife, and upon the birth of our first child in February I will morph into a stay-at-home mom.
I am passionate about holistic living, all things family, food, creating, and learning.
This blog is partly a way for me to not totally lose myself in motherhood, which I know tends to happen, and is a way for me to continue my professional and personal development as our family transitions and as I transition from being not just a woman but also a mother. The transition to mother is already happening, and I am reminded of it as I type my first blog post and our baby moves inside me, reminding me that my journey has already begun.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to share more soon!
