First post! I have been thinking about creating a blog for years. I kept putting it off…I had so many excuses. I thought it might take up too much time while I am working on important goals. I was also a little embarrassed, I thought I should have some of my goals completed before I started–but then I thought we are all working on goals, and why not start as this was one of mine?
A little bit about me:
I named this blog, Lilbitofbliss, because my nickname is ‘Little Bit’ and because I love the word “bliss.” I am a truly happy person, always in pursuit of happiness in life. I love my nickname. It started when my future father-in-law called me that, because I am so tiny. I am 4’11” and have heard every short joke in the book. While I have wished to be taller at times, I usually enjoy being so small.
I am engaged and have been with my fiance for a little over four years. We have a two-year old son together, and are excited about our future! We have plans to be married in either 2015 or 2016, still working out those details. I am currently a full-time student at UWM (University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee) majoring in Secondary Education – English. I apologize in advance for any punctuation or grammar errors, I am still learning!
We are looking forward to my graduation. It has been a long time coming, as I switched majors half-way through. I was originally in school for Business at Cardinal Stritch University, and while I loved the school I was not very interested in Business as a career path. My interest has been in teaching all along–that is a long story and another blog post.
As soon as I graduate, so many pieces will fall into place! I will find work that I really enjoy and will be challenged by. We can buy a cute little house for our family, and I will be able to decorate to my heart’s content–something I have always been passionate about. I will have space in my home for my other hobbies/interests: clothing/fashion, (yay for beautiful professional clothing as a teacher!) decorating, crafts, (home decor, party decorations, etc.) and will start my book collection over again for my library.
Some things I plan to write about in the future:
Weight loss & healthy eating
Shopping-Decorating & Fashion: “finds” and wish lists
Crafts & DIY
