Well, after two years of saying “I need to start my blog” – I finally did it! Mahalo to the “babes” at Blog-Doo for being so amazing with my website design and for all of their tips and hints on blogging. I definitely could not have done this without them. It’s been a month of black fingers – I feel like I’ve scanned five million photos, files, newspaper clippings and magazine articles! What an amazing feeling to see something that only lived in my imagination come to life on my computer screen. I’m extremely excited to have a new venue to share my journey, trials & tribulations, successes, joyous moments, expeditions and everything in between. I want my blog to occupy a space that nurtures optimism, education, positivity, creativity, dreaming BIG and a spirit of adventure. The blog name says it all – “Life’s Swell” – and I can’t wait to show you why!
