Shabby Blog Template

So, I learned the hard way that I need to save my writing every so often on here, just in case.
The "just in case" occurred yesterday. 
 I stomped away from my computer convinced that maybe I'm really not meant to be a blogger after all. 
The irony of the whole experience is what brought me back in. I was so mad that I had spent the majority of my daughter's nap time blogging about coming to the realization that I'm a perfectionist and how I get disappointed in things/people so often and I get stuck in the details...blah,blah,blah...
My conclusion to this discovery was that I just really need to let things slide sometimes and step back to look at the real picture. 
Then the computer just let all the words on my screen disappear.
Ohhh the irony.
Now, it makes me chuckle.
Lesson Numero One in "letting go" perhaps?

Life is definitely a tale. But it isn't a fairytale, it's each of own tales.

Let the wild rumpus begin!

As I type this, I'm picturing Etta James singing "At Last"...
Yes, it is true, I have finally jumped onto Blogger. 
I'm not gonna lie, I am nervously excited (ok, and slightly giddy with ideas) about this blog which has literally taken me years to start. After summing up the basics of  what I am all about... 
writing, creating, being silly, meeting new people, laughing, sharing, learning and being inspired...
sitting here with this laptop pounding out some randomness when I get the chance, sounded like a good place to carry on all of the shenanigans listed above.

So here I am...*cheesy smile*
