Spring is here (take heart, ye snow-weary East coasters) and I’m falling in love with floral prints all over again. Throw some bold black and white into the mix and you’ve got yourself a match made in heaven.

Two or three years ago, in the midst of planning our wedding…and spending more hours than I’d like to admit scouring over gorgeous wedding blogs…I knew I wanted to carve out my own little spot on the web - a collection of my own inspirations and ideas to share with others. I would daydream about it. I was excited about it. I wanted it to happen. And then…it just didn’t. I can say I didn’t have the time, yadda yadda, but in reality, my own fears got in the way. Fears about not being witty enough, not being fashionable enough, creative enough, cool enough, popular enough to write a blog. And so I never did.
I got married to my best friend and soul mate, and nearly two years later we had our first beautiful, amazing child together…and all the while my dear, sweet, persistent hubby would bug me about this blog. That would be so great on your blog. When are you going to start your blog? Should I cancel your domain? Let’s work on your blog. Blog. blog. blog. BLOG. Yes, he drove me crazy. But mostly because I was mad at myself for letting a little dream of mine fade.
And then one night, it really hit me. Our sweet Noah was 8 months old and I had failed miserably at recording all those special moments, feelings, and realizations that come with being a first time mom. A half-finished baby book, thousands of iphone photos hidden in a folder on my computer and a Mom’s One Line A Day journal with just one entry. One line a day! …I remember thinking when I bought it… how hard can that be?! Ha!
There I was, depressed. But determined. I was finally going to see this through, get over my fears, and just start somewhere. Get past zero.
…so, here we go!
