Yikes - I'm off the Fence!!!

as many of you know, i have been sitting on the "blog fence" for a long time now, weighing the pros and cons endlessly, as i tend to do. in the end, i realized that i will never really know how i feel about blogging until i actually get off the pot (or the fence!) and do it.

here is what has really turned the corner for me. i have recently returned from one of the most fabulous experiences of my life - an art (and much more!) retreat on the coast of oregon (bepresentretreats). i now have 24 new SOUL SISTERS who are all lovely, creative, beautiful-inside-and-out women. most of them are using their blogs to define, describe and re-live their experiences.... and i was feeling left out! i also wanted to share how amazing this "time out of time" was and the impact it had on my life.

also, as i look at the other blogs out there, i see the incredible ways in which these women look at their day-to-day experience and find the wonder and beauty there. i want to do the same and i feel that committing to this (blog) will prompt me to do just that.  if in the process i can share something that someone else finds helpful or inspiring that would make me sooo happy!


p.s. i have a lot of catching up to do, so check back soon!!
