Hello, I’m Carrie. It’s nice to meet you, and…I hate being late. But here I am, far too late in my game to become the next internet sensation, but there is a reason why I’m blogging and why it’s only starting now. The FAQ that all my in-real-life-friends want to know is, “Why are you starting a blog?” Perhaps the best way to answer that is to begin telling you all the reasons why I have not started a blog before now.
Blogging can be such a beautiful outlet for those creative sorts. But for me, I knew it would be a distraction to being fully in the present. In fact, it wasn’t long ago that cleared my digital footprint off the internet altogether, in an effort to clear my mind and focus fully on my husband and our four kids. It is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The past few years of family life, young kids at home, and deep relationship with people I’ve known right up close have enriched my life beyond measure. But with my youngest child days away from starting kindergarten, the timing seems right for me to rekindle my love of writing and sharing some of the many thoughts, ideas, and experiences that have helped me live life more fully.
I can’t wait to get this show on the road.
