In my own little corner

I have had some growing desire to improve my blog, to make it more accessible, more hospitable, more helpful.

So I surfed the internet for 5 minutes to see what well-organized, lovely blogs might be out there.

It only took 5 minutes for me to realize that I’m just not in the market yet. Kind of like reviewing my budget and seeing that, nope, an updated wardrobe or a remodeled anything is not in the works any time soon.


When I clicked on “Add New Post” just now, and wondered what to name this post, I was reminded of a song from the 1950’s musical “Cinderella.” (Ever seen it? It’s delightful!

Someday Raising Amazing Children might be someplace a little more amazing. But for now, it’s simply my own corner for inscribing my random thoughts and experiences into the invisible wavelengths that waft out to near and distant shores of mothers who don’t even know I exist and aren’t looking for my voice. With or without the menu tabs or an ability for people to leave comments or a way to link posts to Pinterest or Insta, it’s kind of like my home: a safe haven for me to raise my children, but not stylish the way the world prescribes. And that’s OK, because I’m busy raising my amazing children right now, as well as trying to nurture a few more.

Hope you’re having a great summer!
