I'm a little nervous, but also kind of excited to be starting my very own blog "A.O.K". At the moment there are so many ideas buzzing around in my head - I feel like I'm trying to start a magazine! To simplify things (and try to gain a little focus) let me start by introducing myself and why I've decided to give blogging a try...
"Hi!" I'm Andrea. I'm 27, married to my high school sweet heart (Brandon) and have 2 beautiful girls (Layla and Meaghan), a dog (Reuben), a cat (Reggie) and other pets that I don't really consider my own (I'm sure there will be more about them in future posts). I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia but have lived the last 22+ years on the South Shore of Montreal, Quebec (so yes, I speak french too). I work in communications or "PR". I'm a Christian. There's the facts.
I love... God, my husband, my girls, my family, my friends... eating, kissing, swimming, organizing, decorating, cooking, baking (did I mention eating?), vacation, wine, coffee, reading a good book, ice cream, the beach, sleeping, massages, singing (mostly in the shower or with my babies), decorating, evening walks, the smell of summer...
I'm not a fan of... needles, cantalope, pregnancy (although of course I love the end result!), cleaning the bathroom, ... that's all I can come up with right now, though I'm sure I'll think of more once I stop writing.
This blog is a chance for me to share my experiences (or lack there of), my ideas and opinions with others. I don't have a specific theme but I know that I will write mostly about my experiences as a wife, a mother, a friend, a professional - the highs, the lows, the pretty and the ugly moments of this life - as I try to achieve some balance in it all. Here's a sample of the kind of things I'll be blogging about over the next little while, unless of course life gives me some more interesting things to share with whoever wants to read...
- sleeping through the night
- my baby is smarter than yours
- loving what he loves (or at least trying to)
- Jealous with a capital J
- Learning to accept AND love "me"
- I want a hobby!
- Recognizing the face in the mirror
- Cleaning under the fridge & dusting the base boards
Hope this piques your interest and you'll join me for the ride as I figure out how this "blog" thing works!
