Well here it is!
I've been talking to friends about starting a blog for awhile, just as a personal project. Some of my most admired friends have blogs (you know who you are) and they've inspired me to start my own digital journey. After much procrastination and little preparation I signed into Blogger and bravely clicked that ominous orange button. I'm an avid Facebook user and it's a great way to connect with friends and family, especially when you're stuck with with a three-year old all day, but I know that my "other" Facebook friends could easily get overloaded if I really posted ALL the pictures and ramblings that is my life. This is just a creative outlet for myself, I don't care if anyone even glances at it.
I first had the idea to strictly post about the treasures that I find. I'm a bit granola and a huge pet peeve of mine is when people throw out useful things. In the age of Craigslist and Freecycle, there is absolutely no excuse as to why you would put things in the trash that others can use. It's a huge waste of resources, manpower, and money. That being said, I appreciate all the awesome finds that I collect from my neighborhood dumpster area. That's right, I'm a dumpster diver and proud of it! I just thought it would be a great idea to show the world that one man's trash truly is another man's treasure so be on the lookout for future posts highlighting my dumpster diving gems.
In addition to my treasure hunting posts, I'll blog about whatever inspires me and gives me tranquility in our crazy world: music, art, literature, yoga, nature, gardening, my home, my friends, and of course my family.
That is all for now, my little sweetpea wants to play outside now that the clouds have cleared.
Until next time,
