After mulling it over for about a week, I've decided to start a blog. Hence, Moonbeams in a Jar. I was talking with my husband--who once said that blogging was stupid--about how quickly the pace of life seems to have picked up since we had our daughter in the spring. Every day is something new with her and I don't want to forget how blessed our family is and continues to be. And even though I'm self-described 'vanilla', there are things that Dan and I see, do and experience worth documenting, too.
So, my hope for Moonbeams in a Jar is to be a place where I can share our family stories, pictures, my spiritual journey, crafty projects, home improvements, recipes and more with those I love--and any others who like what I have to say.
Why Moonbeams in a Jar? Yes, it does have a special meaning. It reminds me of my childhood. It's a line in an old song my grandpa used to sing to me called Swinging on a Star. I couldn't think of a better blog title--after the first five tries were rejected! :)
So, I hope you enjoy Moonbeams in a Jar as much as I hope I enjoy working on it. I'd love to hear from some of my blogging friends about your motivation and what you enjoy most about making your daily or weekly posts.
Until next time!
