Finding Me

Tim and I got married young. We started dating the summer before I started my Senior year in high school. I turned 18 in early May and we were married at the end of June. This year we will be married for 10 years. We have had our fair share of ups and downs, but have made it through and our relationship is stronger because of them.

Lately however, I’ve been thinking that I’ve never had the time to get to know myself. That’s sort of silly, to think I don’t know myself as well as I should. My entire adult life has been about me and someone else. And for the last few years it’s been about myself and two other people.

Obviously I know my likes and dislikes. However, I’ve never built up a hobby. Or learned something new, just for me and because I wanted to. Tim is good about developing his own hobbies. When we started dating he was really into weather. He could tell you all about weather patterns and what they mean for our climate. Lately, he’s been into tropical gardening, which is quite a feat when you live in WI!

What do I like? I like reading. I have quite a few television shows which I follow faithfully. I’ve dabbled in crochet and scrapbooking. But I don’t have anything that I’m really passionate about. I want to change this. I want to find and own a hobby. I’ve got a few ideas and I’ll share them here as I explore more options.

I love blogging about my daughter and our life. I read back in time and what I wrote reminds me of memories I had forgotten all about. I’m not going to stop that. But I want to add another aspect to this blog. I need somewhere to remind myself to just be me. A place where I can try and fail and then try something else.
