A few months ago I had the opportunity of meeting up with a blogging friend, Tamera Beardsley. During the evening she asked me a simple question, “Why did you begin blogging?” My first thoughts were; I was bored with life and I really don’t know.
That wasn’t really the answer . . .
Like, Tamera, in her recent post, “Write the blog you want to read“, (which you should go take a look at) my children were now all grown up, one married and the other off at college, and I was faced with “what is my life calling now” state of mind.
So I took a deep (really deep) breath and thought about all the things that bring
into my life.
THAT’S WHEN I REALIZED HOW INCREDIBLY FULL MY LIFE REALLY WAS . . .
AND I WANTED TO SHARE SOME WITH OTHERS. . .
WITH HOPE THAT I WOULD LIFT OR INSPIRE OR BETTER YET MAKE SOME NEW FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY.
Believe me, I knew absolutely nothing about blogging when I began, If you have follow me, you probably already realized this, but I’m learning. I’ve also learned that I break most “blogging rules”.
For starters I don’t really have a platform . . .
or a schedule to when I blog . . .
Because you see the things that bring me joy, and happiness and satisfaction range from . . .
SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY
CAPTURING EVERYDAY BEAUTY WITH PHOTO’S
And I can’t seem to decide which I want to leave out, and that’s why I choose
TEA TIME WITH TRINA
Because what my blog boils down to is . . .
A thirst for beauty . . .
A peek at some memorable life experiences . . .
Setting a lovely table . . .
Paying attention to the little details in life . . .
(like simply having a glass of ice water from a crystal glass, and why not?)
Getting dressed up for an occasion . . .
and best of all
SPENDING CHERISHED HOURS IN THE COMPANY OF NEW AND OLD FRIENDS.
So as this new year begins . . .
I invite you . . .
TO COME TO TEA WITH ME. . .
It may be to discuss fashion
or family life
BUT ALL IN ALL , IT’S REALLY JUST A TIME TO RELAX AND ENJOY ONE ANOTHER’S FRIENDSHIPS.
I’m looking forward to another great year and to learning more to this ever ending blogging network of friends. Thanks for those of you who have joined me on this adventure . . .
