Why, in a Nutshell
Writing this, this introduction, is very reason why I’ve hesitated for so long to start this up. There doesn’t seem a way to introduce myself without seeming cheesy. But the truth is I love what happens when I blog. Sure, comments are fun and traffic is exciting, but mostly I love the trail I leave when I blog. It’s a lot of fun to look back and see where I’ve been. I want to leave footprints, both for myself and for anyone else who might find them helpful. I’m at a place in my life that feels very transitory – choosing my directions through a series of crossroads. I’m recently married to a thoughtful man who shall be known as P. I lost my father not even three weeks ago and he was a creative force in my life. I’m a crafter and a cooker and a lover of nature in no small part because of him. P and I are looking for a house at the same time we’re contemplating some big travel plans. I’m going back to school this fall after a six-year hiatus that was spent working and traveling, learning and exploring, hurting and healing. After a tumultuous childhood, an unsteady adolescence, and a undirected but very creative early adulthood, I feel some of my bones finally solidifying and someday I want to be able to see where I was and why I made some of the crucial decisions I’m making right now. I also want to see myself and how I grow as a crafter and in my culinary curiosities.
No matter how hard I’ve tried, I’m not a journaler. I’m a baby of the computer era and I find writing out a journal tedious and inefficient. Just typing up Word documents with journalistic thoughts feel incomplete. So I find myself again posting my thoughts and projects to the rests of the world. So, Hello there. My name is Meg.
