I'm slightly intimidated by this site. My experience in reading the blogs on blogspot is that they are generally updated in a similar approach that you would update an acquaintance in your life that you’re not all that comfortable being candid with. I'm not sure I can live up to that, or moreover that I am aiming for this blog to follow that movement, because it would feel contrived for me -- it’s not my style and it just isn't my idea of fun. Hopefully I can make it my (our) own and update with my perspective about this novel experience of motherhood and having a family so Zoe can come look at this when she is older and enjoy (or roll her eyes) at what life was like when she first invaded the world and the merry mayhem that ensued. I needed a new space to put these things because it felt out of sync with the ten years of theatrics I’ve planted in livejournal.com – not to mention the majority of my livejournal friends are childless by choice and have probably exhausted their patience reading about teething and breast feeding breakdowns.
Also: RECIPES & COOKING! -- if I can get myself together enough to bring a camera into the kitchen and document. I intended to do my first blog here with a recipe for my favorite enchiladas since I made them last night, but I kind of just wanted to make them as fast as possible so I could devour them. Most of my favorite blogs right now happen to be cooking blogs. Over the last year and a half, an intense affection for cooking has taken me. It’s a steady improvement, a major work in progress, but I’ve come a long way from the days of restricting my cooking knowledge to ordering take-out.
Also, I posted a picture of a porcupine cause they are cute. And I didn't have anything else photograph-wise to offer in this post. I see that the bloggers like their pictures, and I would hate to disappoint with boring text when adorable porcupines could be being viewed.
