It's a baby...... blog.

I met my friend, E, on Sunday morning at a local coffee shop. We often go to this particular coffee shop for their organic home-roasted coffee and baked vegan treats. E is vegan. I used to be vegetarian, and have been thinking lately about going back to vegetarianism. I ordered a latte and a sesame seed bagel with vegan cream cheese (which was so tasty, I couldn't tell it was non-dairy). We talked a lot about food, exercise, and babies. E is 18 weeks pregnant, and just starting to show a little bit. She told me that the following day she had a doctor appt. and would hopefully find out the sex of the baby.

We also talked about my idea of starting this blog. It's an idea that has been on my mind for a year or more. Somewhat similar to someone who is thinking of having a baby, I've been looking at this idea from different angles. I've been imagining how the little blog would fit into my life- what rewards and challenges it would bring, etc. I think the idea solidified for me as we sat and sipped our coffee. Yes, I want a blog in my life. It makes sense in the grand scheme of where I feel I am going with things. I'm excited to bring my idea to fruition and begin this new little endeavor.


  1. I'm really excited to follow your journey, L. It's the perfect timing, a new year and all. Thanks so much for the invitation!

  2. Happy belated birthday! I can tell this will be an inspiring read. Looking forward to seeing what unfolds...

  3. Hi A & E,
    So glad to see you both!
