My. First. Post.  I can't help, but feel a little bit of pressure.  I set up this account and designed my page several weeks ago, but have not been able to bring myself to write this post until now.  I have been over thinking it.  What should I write about?  What should my blog be about?  Should I focus on crafting or family or both?  Should I write about my day, much like I did in my journals growing up?  Should I post pictures of my latest projects or talk about my day at work?  This bright, cold screen can be intimidating and I can't help, but be nervous as I begin my journey in this great big world of blogging!

I think that I will just decide as I go.

First I guess it would be nice to give an introduction.  My name is Jodi.  I am a therapist and I work in a community mental health center.

                                              Ugh!  I hate this picture, but it was the only one I could find of just me!

I say that I am a therapist, but I guess thats not who I am.  I love to cook. I love to crochet.  I love being creative in general.

                                                       I love my husband and my cat.

I can't wait for the day that I have children, and I wish that I could spend my day baking warm chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes and learning to use my new (and seemingly complicated) sewing machine and crafting.  I started this blog because as a therapist it is easy to see that life can be anything but SIMPLE.  I see and hear complicated horrible things everyday.  I need a space where I can write about the good things in life.  The funny things.  The beautiful things.  The simple things.
