A Julie & Julia Moment!

When I first came to the states in 2004 a guy told told me all about blogging and I think I said something along the lines of "Well who would read them?" Obviously I didn't quite get the concept and I didn't 'get it' until almost six years later. That's when I started stumbled across the blog Not because I wanted to decorate my run down, wrong side of the tracks house all beachy. Admittedly, I was jealous of her style, but the thing that hooked me was the fact that she too had moved from the UK (the mother land) and was making sense of enormity of this decision and through this she had decided to blog not only the transition  of her cottage but also that of her life in Australia. 

Once upon a time I brushed the sleep from my eyes, morning cuppa in hand and read the BBC pages or The Times, Facebook, anything that took me home, but now I'm hooked on a complete strangers life thousands of miles away. Through her decorating blog, I have learnt to accept my life here in the states. In fact I will go as far to say, that I now relish each day! I'm appreciating everything around me and seeing things through new eyes. Who da thunk that a blog could do this? But it's true! Even the hubby (never a bigger cynic would you meet) say's "this is a Sarah moment eh?" (Sarah aka Beach Cottage blogger). I see beauty almost every day and always say to myself "I should capture this moment and blog it" and so here I am.

If no one else reads this, it will serve no purpose other than a diary, with pictures!  Anyhoo, I've started it... I now need to work out how to get my pictures up on here. I have a lot to share... I guess I'm only sharing it with the laptop for now, but who knows where this baby is heading!
