Why?

So, here it goes...my very first blog.

Since the birth of my son Conor a little over five years ago, I have considered starting a blog...and never did.  Then the last eighteen months happened, and I finally decided that I NEEDED to do this - I needed an outlet, so here I am.

Life has been a whirlwind since the spring of 2010.  I have experienced a significant amount of loss, including the death of my mother's twin, my Aunty Glenda in December, and my beloved Mumu, my grandmother, in February.  And just a couple of months ago, my cousin Alicia, only a few years older than me, passed away.

But, I have also experienced great joy during such a difficult time...I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Rowan on March 3rd.  And became an aunt for the first time on June 5th, to a handsome boy named Nate.  I am not a religious person, but the timing of these deaths and births has me thinking - a lot.

And throughout this emotional roller coaster, my best friend, my loving husband Frank has been there every step of the way. To add to the ride, we became homeowners for the first time!  

The next stop at the amusement park?  Kindergarten!!! Conor will begin kindergarten on September 14th, a milestone that I did not think would be stressful or too emotional, but as the day inches closer and closer and I talk with my mommy friends, I have realized that it WILL be stressful and VERY emotional!

So, here I am, blogging - and wondering where the ride will take me next.
