Finally Here

For quite some time I have wanted to post a blog. I love to write and I think, at times, I have something to say that someone might be interested to read. Maybe, maybe not, but I do want to write.

My life changed drastically when I had children. Everything I thought I knew was swept away in a moment, gone never to come back. And I didn't want it back. My reality was wonderful. At times, it was hard, frustrating, and exhausting but still, wonderful. I set my focus on raising my beautiful, intense babies. Then rather recently, my precious boy became a bit more independent. I had some fleeting moments to rediscover past interests and delve into new ones. The sleep crystals of having young babies were wiped from my eyes and I saw a world larger than my nursery.

This summer has been full of amazing experiences. I have connected with friends, old and new, taken up fiber arts, found my relationship with Christ reenergized and refreshed, and stumbled upon the magical world of hoop dance. With these new experiences,I have found I have so much more to say and to share. I want to spread the enthusiasm to anyone interested in accepting this joy. I want to express the incredible bliss I feel when I am truly present in the moment. But I don't want to get bogged down in things that just don't matter. I don't want to waste valuable energy on superfluous junk.

That is where the name comes in.

Quiddity- the quality that makes a thing what it is; the essential nature of a thing.

I love this word so very much. It just speaks to my heart. That is what this blog is, or at least I hope it will be, the essense of my life, the essense of me.
