Hello You!

I’ve been journaling for seventeen years now and have loved every second of it! I decided to add my Journal to a small corner of the Internet.  Once my life transitioned from full-time employee to full-time wife and mother, I felt a void in my world that I was eager to fill. My life became more than what I was expected to do as an employee and scheduling my life around that; To scheduling my work around my husband and daughters, Daddy’s Little Girls.

The times we have shared, both good and bad has been a testament to my life.  I have looked to my journal over the years to help friends, family, and even myself. I realized that being transparent and discussing so many different aspects of my life has helped me form a bond with friends and family that goes beyond small talk.

With the support of my husband, family, and friends, I decided to take the plunge and pursue this industry full-time.  I truly feel like my journey can help and entertain more than just my family and friends and therefore I am sharing it with the world.

Until next, shine amongst the stars!

  1. Being a full-time parent is a full-time job in and of itself. It’s so wonderful that you’re finding time for blogging, and filling your little corner of the internet with beautiful thoughts and content.


  2. Welcome to the blogosphere! I have to say I love that kitchen and would be quite happy to have one just like it! Joining Facebook blogging groups is a great step, because they provide a lot of support and accountability.

  3. I know the feeling! 🙂 I started blogging only because I loved to write and I needed an outlet for my creativity as I transitioned from corporate employee to stay-at-home mom. It never occurred to me that blogging would take me places, let alone make money out of it, but it did! 🙂

    Enjoy blogging, and welcome to the club! 🙂

  4. I was a consistent journaler in my teen years and I’m pretty sure it’s what going me through some tough times. I wish I would have kept doing so in my adult life. My kids are almost grown and it would be amazing to read back over those memories one day.

  5. I guess that’s why I became a blogger too because I had ideas in my head that I wanted to share with others but had no outlet to share them in/on. Keeping a journal is a great way to review the experiences that we have in life and to have a keepsake of.

  6. I think there’s a little peace you can give yourself when you write your personal thoughts down. I knew a guy who wrote in his journal for at least 30 years and he said it was his little meditation ground. You get to think deeper than you would if you had a live conversation with someone and it’s very calming to be able to get what you want out.

  8. I understand that being a full-time mother is very tough but I’m glad that you found the way to express yourself. I believe that the more memories you have, the more you can share with us through the blogging world. Welcome you, brave mother. Wish you and your family the best.

  9. Good luck Lavanda. I can imagine how tough it’s to be a full time mom, but it’s completely worth it to spend time with your family and be able to see your kids grow up properly. Keep up with the good work!
