The Beginning, a very good place to start.

This website has been brewing in my mind for ages. I have folders in my iPhoto going back years of things that I thought would end up making an appearance on my until-now imaginary website. I keep waiting until I can do things how I want them without knowing how to make them happen, which means nothing happens!

And to be fair, choosing the proper theme and getting a professionally designed logo took me until December 2015, and then our up-to-that point slow adoption process zipped into light speed and we were off for a 6-week adventure to bring Miss Mia into our family. But we have been home for nearly 3-weeks now and I can keep using tiredness and baby-brain as a reason not to get this up and running but tonight I just decided to make something happen, even if it is just small. My Dad had this quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in his office and it popped in to my head tonight,


As good old Maria sings in the Sound of Music, “Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start.” So here I go, beginning at the beginning. Welcome to my thoughts on the good-stuff in life.

    The quote, often attributed to Goethe, though it may have come from a British mountaineer, has been my mantra for years. The complete also talks about how the Universe will ‘step in’ and provide what we need if we only have the faith to put action behind our desires.

    Thanks for sharing.

    And I love the site and am spreading the word.
