Hello and welcome to the Weekly Blog Hop and to Katie's Nesting Spot!
I orginally started my blog as strictly an online journal for my family. I wanted some where to record little snippets of what we're doing. This way I'd have everything already written for when I eventually get around to scrapbooking my piles of photos. It quickly evolved into a creative outlet and a place to share the learning adventures I have with my toddler.
I love blogging about our daily life, the fun parts and trials of raising a toddler. For me the best part of blogging is becoming friends with other bloggers. I like meeting new friends and learning their stories. I recently begun writing reviews and doing giveaways so you'll also find a few of those peppered throughout too. My interests include crafting, scrapbooking, photography, learning new things like how to use my sewing machine, trying new recipes, and throwing themed play dates.
I'm also a co-founder of ABC & 123: A Learning Cooperative, where we share educational activities from around the web but mainly from our wonderful readers. As a former kindergarten and special education teacher that's a way for me to stay involved in the career I loved and plan to return to after my hiatus to be a stay at home mommy. Come visit me there too! I'd love to get a lesson submission from you!
What began as a fun little thing to do after checking my email has rapidly grown. I'm looking forward to finding some great new blogs to read! Please leave me a comment so I know you've been by. If you like what you see please consider becoming a follower. I'd love to see you at my place again!
