Home Is Where My Story Begins

What Is This Blog Anyway?

Someone asked me once, what I blog about.  My response was, “Ummm.  Home stuff.”  I couldn’t really put my finger on my main topic.  I read food blogs, DIY blogs, photography blogs, sewing blogs, garden blogs, and interior design blogs.  I love them all!  When I think about my own blog, it doesn’t fit neatly into any of those categories.

I write about antiques I collect and where I put them in my house.

I share recipes I’ve come up with.

I do share home decor once in a while.

I always enjoy sharing sewing tutorials.

Probably one of my favorite topics to post about is gardening.

So, what is this blog anyway?  I’d say it’s a Homemaking blog.  I majored in Family and Consumer Science in college (along with getting my teaching degree) and I’ve always loved everything about FCS (formerly home economics).  I also love the mission of FCS, which is to help people improve the quality of their lives.  I guess that’s “kind of” my mission here.  My hope is to inspire someone who doesn’t sew, to break out the sewing machine and give it a try.  I’d love to see someone try a recipe I’ve posted here and realize that cooking from scratch isn’t too hard.  Wouldn’t that be cool?  I think so, which is why I blog and am so thrilled when I get an email from a friend who tells me I’ve inspired them to try something new.  
I may not be a food blogger or garden blogger.  You may not consider this place a sewing blog or DIY blog, but it’s a pretty fun Homemaking blog to write.
Happy homemaking!
