Move #10 - August 2008 - 7 months pregnant
You've probably noticed that I've been trying to resurrect this blog during the past couple of weeks. Several people had mentioned that I should start blogging again, so I've been posting periodically. Most of it has been pretty random, though.
I got to thinking about the purpose of the blog. Of course, there are many (communicating ideas, preserving memories, sharing things I've learned or come across, etc.). But the name of the blog, Bloom Where You're Planted, was chosen because I've moved many more times over the past 13 years than most people move in a lifetime, and I've learned (and continue to learn) the hard way how to make the most of those moves - even the ones that weren't planned or wanted (the one in the picture above was not planned and definitely not wanted).
The ideas that I will share are things that I have done myself. Because of that, they relate most directly to a stay-at-home Mom in a new town. But I'm hoping that others will get some ideas as well from reading my experiences. I'm also hoping it will inspire someone who, although not new in a town, still hasn't really put down any roots or made any friends.
So I hope you'll join me each week as we discuss how to truly Bloom Where You're Planted.
