My name is Robin. I live to create - anything I can do with my hands and my head. I'm a messy creator - an imperfect creator who loves beauty and aesthetic with a real edge. This isn't a blog about perfection - its a blog about the beauty in real life - the small triumphs and epic failures - trying to get homework done with a tired 5 year old after a 12 hour day and still getting a smidge of weaving in before the crash. Figuring out what the dream is when you finally realize its not the house and the car. Its about not letting the years get the best of you and cherishing all that you love in life. Mostly its just a place for me to put all the things that I love and that inspire me.
Wow, our first blog! We'll see how this goes. The main purpose of this blog will be as a networking tool to help us make connection with birth parents in our adoption journey. We hope that even though our lives may not be very interesting to most, hopefully the right person will be interested in what they find here. We will be trying to give a glimpse into who we are beyond the adoption profile. Aside from that I have always wanted to give blogging a try. I will probably be posting lots of crafty stuff as that seems to always be first and foremost in my mind (aside from starting our family). I also adore inspiration and style blogs and hope that we will post a lot of our inspirations. Hopefully I will learn to be good at this and make a halfway decent blog for us and connect with some great people at the same time. We attended our adoption networking class yesterday. It was a great class with a lot of ideas but I feel a little overwhelmed with all the things that need to get done. We really need to put some more focus on our efforts going forward. Our adoption study is almost finalized, only one letter from Jeannette (our family counselor) to go before the final approval. Then we will put together our adoption cards and start mailing them out.
