Picture of the Week:
The Week in Review:We had a great visit with grandparents! We spent a big part of Saturday putting the world back together. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it!
Introduction into The Society: Good, True and Beautiful–WELCOME to the fam!
1. Tell us a little about your blog (name/reason why you blog):
My name is Sharon and I blog at Good, True and Beautiful, a small corner of the blogosphere that captures the crazy thoughts that run through my mind. It was gonna be either blogging or therapy, and blogging was cheaper. When I think about it, I’m amazed at how sharing little pieces of my life leads to friendships and buddies all around the internet. So, now I’m addicted to blogging — guess I’ll need that therapy after all.
2. How long have you blogging?
I wrote my first post on Feb 3, 2009 (that also happens to be my husband’s birthday – it’s the gift that keeps on giving). Initially I started a blog thinking that it might be a way to make extra money for our family – since I’m now consistently earning in the low double-digits, we can all agree that it was a real savvy business move. I’m good like that.
3. How would you define THAT family?
THAT family has the ability to laugh at itself. I think there is something contagious about not taking yourself too seriously. It certainly has helped me get through some of the rough patches of motherhood. I mean, no one tells you about the re-hydrating power of raisins – you just have to realize that joy for yourself.
4. When did you discover you were a part of THAT family?
I started getting a suspicious on the day when our hot water heater broke and I had to prepare for lunch with my pastor. And my thoughts drifted here a time or two as I was watching an episode of The Waltons while eating my chocolate ice cream (with rainbow sprinkles). But the truth was undeniable when I had to confront the cancer-sniffing powers of my toddler. Of course, when I confessed it to my sister she said “I could have told you when you asked for the bread maker.” I guess I’ve been in denial.
5. Where can we find your blog?
Head on over to Good, True and Beautiful but be warned: my impeccable sense of fashion might be a bit overwhelming.
