Minding Peas and Combining Blogs

If you read my blog regularly (or at least as regularly as I post things) you might notice that I’m at a different blog address now.  This is a combination blog.  I’ve brought over all my old posts from my personal blog (The Story of a Girl) AND my book review blog (We Peas Read) in an attempt to make my hobbies more streamlined.  I really enjoy writing book reviews, but I also want to be able to write about daily life things too without feeling like I’ve strayed from my genre.

Life is always changing, but we’ve had a lot of diversions in this last year.  Job changes, cross-country moves, a third child, more job changes, studying, writing books… It is a never slowing whirlwind.  Now that I’ve had some time to analyze all the reasons why I’m having trouble keeping up with my book reviews, let alone any personal blogposts, I have realized that my blogging style has to change too.

So here we are at Minding My Peas.  My life is all about minding these days–Being mindful of each moment and cherishing this wild, spectacular, ever-changing life with my P.’s.

I want to write posts about the kids, about the things we’re doing as we ease into homeschooling (Sophia is FOUR and it is blowing my mind!), budgeting, and still do a few book reviews here and there.  I do love looking at my old blogposts and remembering the things that inspired me to write about the kids.  I would love to be able to have this blog as a scrapbook of our years.  That is my goal.  We’ll see how it goes. 😛
