Time to start blogging again.
I took a year off of blogging. (If there is a reader who is interested in my other blog, Just Enough Light, where I wrote for six years, click over to here to read to your heart's content.) 2014 was a very tough year and I was not sad to say goodbye to it.
Time to move on.
We have moved from Minnesota to South Carolina. (I've been here for a whole week now!) New job, new state, new region of the country, new house (eventually). All that newness just calls for a new blog.
I want this blog to document our time here in the Southeast. This is a big move for this Midwest girl. True, I lived in Singapore for three years, but other than that I have lived in the Midwest. I expect there to be some fun/interesting things to observe. Take for instance, my visit to the grocery store yesterday. I saw bags of greens: mustard greens, collard greens, turnip greens. Not your typical Midwest fare. I smiled to myself because I have NO idea what to do with greens.
Let's talk about the title of this blog. Ampersand. Several years ago, I gave my hubby a large, metal ampersand and hung it on the wall in our bedroom. I told him it was to remind us that from now on it was just him & me & God. We were in the beginning stages of the Empty Nest. Our kids were married and now it was just us. This blog is about our lives & our adventures & my relationship with God & my hobby of quilting & our kids & the new grand-baby about to be born & whatever else come to mind.
Like how moving across the country takes time to find my place, time to have a rhythm to life, and lots of changes, I expect this blog to morph and change over time.
So... here I go off on a new adventure!
