I'm Back!

This spring and summer have been tumultuous to say the least. I graduated from Dalton State College in May and I also moved from Dalton, GA down to Covington. We left our apartment behind and have taken up residence in a 100+ year-old home that has been in the Future Hubs's home for decades. It took ages to get everything moved in and we've still been renovating and cleaning things up (the house had been vacant for years before we moved in). We went from a one-bedroom fully carpeted teeny apartment to a two-story multi-bedroom hardwood-floored home with a big yard and tons of antiques that have needed sorting through. Not to mention, it had zero functioning bathrooms and as of (hopefully) tonight, we'll finally have two. AND I've been working on planning my upcoming wedding. Not to mention trying to find a teaching job.

Needless to say, this blog regrettably fell by the wayside.

BUT now that most things have been squared away or whipped into functional and manageable states, I can finally sit back down at a computer and find the time for blogging.

I've thought about this blog a lot in the past few months, as I struggled to find the time to make an update. After a lot of consideration, my goal is to shape this into something meaningful. I'm not going to go out in dogged pursuit of brands or ads and adspace. I'm going to try not to obsess over inanity too much. I'm going to talk about the important stuff. I want this blog to be about what's important to me and what I'm experiencing in my life. So what does that mean?

Things I'm Going to Feature on This Blog:
+ My travels
+ My wedding
+ My experiences in this old house we've taken on
+ Food (cooking, growing, etc)
+ Weight loss and healthy living
+ History, culture, and politics
+ Teaching
