getting real.

Well, isn't this interesting. After reading my older posts, I have done some searching. Results: a. NOT funny, b. fake, c. boring.

After seeking out other pages and people I realize: a. I suck at grammar (especially commas), b. I need to write about something meaningful to ME or else WHY BOTHER, c. I need to get real with who I am. and I'll throw in a d. I need to do some soul searching. (And let me start off by saying I'm stealing the color/font thing from Laura's amazing page. I wish I knew how to do that thing where you insert something-or-other and then Laura's name underlines and turns blue and by clicking you can be immediately directed to her

I am a new mother. An OLD Christian (I will explain that later. Remind me, perhaps.). A free spirit. A wife. and many other things as well...but those are my priorities at the moment. I am also a friend and sister and I am not bragging, but I think I am doing well at both of those so they aren't on my "fixer-upper" list.
I really love this whole COLOR thing. I hope it doesn't get old or over-done. (too late).

The purpose of my blog is this: a. By blogging I force myself to think and hold myself accountable to work on the things in my life that need work. Per-chance someone out there reads this that needs some slacker reassurance...there is hope. b. To have a record of my growth and be able to reflect on the past.

Matthew 6:5-15. Jesus' teaching on Prayer.
The Lord's Prayer is within that bundle of verses ... it's familiar and comforting to me. My dad used to sit in-between my sisters and my room at night and pray it with us before we went to reminds me of how strong i was in my faith when i was younger.... but eventually, it got old, I got cold, people in faith let me down, the excuses could go on but I'm back in the game now, folks.

  1. Kylie! I love this post. I think "getting real" is something we all need to be reminded to do at times.

    I also think blogging a great way to keep yourself accountable, and it is a GREAT way to document life. I am so thankful for you.

    I am really looking forward to reading what else you have to say, and bouncing ideas off each other.

    LOVE that you are using the color thing...I love how it emphasizes certain portions.

    I missed you, and loved meeting you and the little one today. I'm so glad we are reconnected. I can't wait to speak truth to each other for the next 20+ years that we will know each other.
