I’m starting this blog as a way to chronicle a change in the direction of my life. I’ve recently decided that now is a good time to try for a baby, and all that comes with a new little one. But I certaintly don’t want this to just be a trying to conceive/pregnancy/mommy blog, because I’ve always got more than one thing going on. So instead, I’m looking at this as something of a project blog. Projects will most likely include home-making things like cooking, crafting, gardening, and baby-making, since those are the sort of projects that bring me the most pleasure. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and an inveterate academic. I want to know all that I can about whatever I take on, and I hope to catalog the process and what I learn here. I hope you’ll join me.
