life

It begins here

July 3, 2017


It’s been just over two years since I last sat down to write anything remotely resembling a blog post, and I’ll be honest and say its a bit intimidating to dive back in. Something was missing that I enjoyed with writing and the further I stepped away, the easier it got for me to stop.

These past two years has had me yearn to write again, yet that intimidation did so well at keeping me away. It’s only now after getting married, moving to Europe, graduating college, and embracing my role as, “stay-at-home-wife that has me feeling like I can open up again after years of feeling closed off.

I used to have a fun little blog called, Amazing GrapesThere I’d talk about just about everything, while facing the struggles of a disability retirement. I promise it was a lot more fun than it sounds, and if you knew me there, then I’d tend to hope you’d agree with me!

Two articles that seemed to resonate with many were how I kicked the nasty habit and your decal family

I felt though that Amazing Grapes wasn’t me anymore. I was, and am, so different from that person, it didn’t feel right to pick up seemingly where I left off, and I knew I needed to start fresh. Thus the Carving Stone was birthed. My very own website where I can share life as we know it with ideas, and thoughts, and encouraging words. You can read a little more about me here.

I’m excited and encouraged with this new and thrilling chapter, and I look forward to meeting a whole new slew of bloggers from this. I’ve gotten to know so many who have become close, dear friends, and I can’t wait to know you! So, stay close, my future friends, because we’re just getting started!

  1. I’m so glad to see you back with a new blog! So many changes since we heard from you last. Looking forward to your postings! I do not have a blog, my life is pretty humdrum.

    1. Aww, thank you. xo We both know it isn’t “humdrum.” I think I’d love to read your thoughts and stories told out in a blog! I’d definitely read it. 🙂
