Firstly, I don't know how ya'll do it! For months I have wanted to begin my blog. At long last, I have all the tools at my fingertips now, and the time, the time it just keeps slipping away from me.
I'm a fulltime career mommy and my days are long. The goal of this blog is to be far reaching. More literally than figuratively. While I don't believe in being all to all of the people all of the time is actually possible, I do think those who try must be extremely exhausted. The purpose of this blog is two-fold.
1. As a transplant from San Francisco I miss my girlfriends more than they will ever know! But as a mother of two small kiddies, I rarely get time to write my letters or pick up the phone. I hope to keep my family and friends updated on our little world here in Ireland.
2. As a huge enthusiast of crafts--mostly patchwork and quilting-- I am always wanting to soak up the nuances of crafts and the various people who craft. In my own diary, I want the blog to motivate me to finish projects stalled and stale.
We have lived in Ireland now for three years and yet, only recently it began with a few clicks of my mouse and I found myself among Rocks in My Dryer. From that blog, I've have since found several favorite mommy and craft blogs. So now I begin my own journey--who knows maybe one day I can help someone else out there connect to places, new and old!
So take your coat off, and stay awhile!
