First Steps


I’m not usually one to step much out of my comfort zone, but with the online community I’ve become a part of and LOVE, I’ve gained a little confidence. When a friend (@NikolSpencer) sent me a link and suggested that I sign up for a contest, I was a little nervous. I don’t do things like this, but then I thought – why not? I don’t have anything to lose and I get to cook, which I love to do. How fun!

So, I’m shooting off an application for the contest, we’ll see if I get picked, but I feel better even knowing I’m taking that first step. It’s opening up a new door for me and I have all of my Twitter and LookingGlassLane friends to thank. I feel stronger having a group of such wonderful women in my corner for whatever life brings me – you ladies are amazing, truly and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for giving me some of my strength back.

UPDATE:The contestants were chosen at the end of June (sorry it took me so long to update this!) and I didn’t get picked, but best of luck to all those in the competition!

Feet First Down the Rabbit Hole…

I’ve been inspired by the many awesome ladies I follow on Twitter(@modernsinglemom, @MissIve, @fleurdeleigh, @ZenMommy, @RiaSharon & @misscriss0830) and the blogosphere. I’m joining their newest adventure Looking Glass Lane and compiling my very own dossier. I’m not very good at self description, but I’m working on it. This is attempt #1 and I may have to come back to revise later, but here we go…
