5 Things I Learned in My First Year of Blogging

My blog officially turned one on the 23rd! It still amazes me that I've been able to maintain this blog for so long and consistently post, grow and learn more about blogging on a daily basis! I've tried and failed to keep a blog in the past, but this time it stuck! ...more
Yes, yes, yes!  I've been blogging since July, and have learned mos oft the same lessons so far. ...more

10 Things a New Blogger Needs to Know

If you do not know my blogging story, it started when I was going through a lot of things and wanted a way to document my feelings and also be able to write. It was on a platform called Webs and I kept it primarily to myself. ...more

#TBT: A Love Letter to My #BlogHer14 Sisters

When I tell people that at 32 years old I’ve never been in love a pearl-grabbing gasp is the common response.Eyes bulging, jaws dropping, some slowly step back.I comfort them with my confidence, “It’s okay, it’s not a condition.”When I decided to share my story by blogging I thought it would be as simple as write, post, repeat.Little did I know, it would be more like write, hide, puke, repeat.Fear, anxiety and intimidation would sink in and I would rather push pins in my eyes than press publish on another post.But then, BlogHer happened....more

A Fit Mom's Thoughts - My Humble Beginnings

Let's start with an introduction - my name is Rachael and I'm a thirty year old new(ish) mom. I say new-ish because my son just turned one. In the grand scheme of things I suppose that does qualify me as a new mom, but sometimes I feel like people hear "I'm a new mom" and roll their eyes! But I digress....more


I just spent more than an hour replying to a Man Baby reply to Trish (I don't dare look up her last name now). Then, it not only dissapeared but for the last line from here, but from my Wordpad copy on my desktop. It's so late it's very early (sun is in the shower now, be out soon) which may have something to do with it? Or is there a time limit on composing a reply? Not a bad idea really. But it is wonderful to have this place to write. And I promise and threaten that I will. ...more

New to Blogging!

Well, I am giving blogging a try for the first time today and want to say Hello to everyone! I have set up a new shop to sell my photography on Etsy.com and would love you to drop in and check it out and then give me some feedback. I am selling prints, pre-made panels, notecards, and mouse pads as well as digital files on thumb drive ready to use on your digital photoframes and as computer screensavers. All of these would make excellent gifts! Let me know what you think. Thanks, Sheila www.etsy.com/shop/justforjoyphotos ...more

Please to meet you..

I'm no super model. I wish I were 20 lbs. lighter, and that my noise was just a tad smaller. Somehow my high school sweetheart loved my nutty-self to marry me, then loved me even more to want to stick around. I always contemplate if he's the crazy one. I'm a young military wife living on the opposite side of the world. I thought the first year of marriage would be the hump to get over, then it would be a breeze. Marriage.. a breeze? Smack me now. Honestly though, I knew going into this thing that it wouldn't be all June and Ward Cleaver-like....more
