Well, here we are! Thanks for taking the plunge into my blog – and for giving me a shot to share some of my thoughts as to WHY I am taking a chance with this whole blog thing.
Why start a blog? Why connect with others, why share my inspirations, projects and thoughts with potentially complete strangers?
Because I’m at this really weird, but cool, but kinda scary, part of my life where I am floating, just waiting for things to fall into place. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grounded and surrounded by some of the greatest and loving people I have met in my life thus far and things have fallen into place with the amazing relationship I am in. But, I have always been drawn to social media and blogs (anyone remember Xanga?) and by sharing and connecting with others, I become eager to learn and connect with those around me.
Why the name Bloom in The Middle?
As I said before, I’m in a funny stage of life –a middle part of life, if you will. And! It just so happens I live about 170 miles from the absolute center of the United States. But hey, what about the Bloom part? Besides my love for flowers (specifically peonies and tulips) I like to think of “Bloom” in the way of flourishing or thriving. Just because we are in the middle of figuring things out in life, doesn’t mean we aren’t growing and flourishing.
So feel free to grow, learn, bloom, and take chances along with me.
