Writing has always been somewhat therapeutic for me. Many times I have tried to get into the habit of writing more, but I just never did. In October, a co-worker/friend of mine and I got to talking about the books we had recently read (another hobby I have always tried to find more time for with little success). My co-worker and I found we had a lot in common when it came to reading, and she shared with me that she had just finished writing a book. As she became more involved with the process of getting it published, she decided to start up a blog. (Check it out here; her writing style is fantastic!) I began following her blog and was so inspired that I decided to create my own. I’m quite the perfectionist though, and am pretty self-conscience of my writing. I starting blogging, but made it visible only to myself. I’ve decided to go ahead and create a blog that anyone can read, even though I’m sure not many people will!

As you’ll find in the “About Me” section, I’ve recently left my job to move to a new city. I’m moving in with my fiancé for the first time, planning our wedding set for August, job hunting, and many other average, everyday things. Through my blog I can keep all my friends and family up-to-date without having to tell everyone the same thing over and over again. The topics I plan to include are: job hunting, wedding planning, the trials and tribulations of moving, setting up a new place, living with my soon to be husband, the fact that I’m a real shopaholic (hence the blog title) and even my weight loss plan; life in general. So follow me and I hope to bring you some entertainment and if nothing else, a weekly slice of my life.

Fabulous first post! And thanks for the plug!

I can't wait to read more about your wedding planning, living with the fiance and job hunting!

Oh, and don't forget about the writing in general. Take advantage of this time without a job. I really wish I had been writing for the duration that I wasn't working. But I found this passion too little too late.
