I have missed writing here on the blog the last couple weeks and have been a little bit MIA, although I have a great reason!
This past weekend I presented two workshops at the North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) annual conference. This conference is for homeschoolers across the state of NC. I remember the first one my hubby and I went to 22 years ago. Who knew I would one day be teaching from my years of experience in the trenches?
It was such an honor to share the wisdom I’ve gleaned (and funny family stories) from years of living life as a homeschooling mom.
To think I’ve discovered such passion and purpose in this new season of my life!
The last decade and a half were difficult years for me, but I’m embracing all God has taught me during those times of stress. I’m working on getting healthier. I have more energy and am enjoying life as a work at home mom immensely.
I’m an over 50 blogger and proud of it!
Today I’m excited to participate in the blog series Between the Lines organized by Katherine of Katherines Corner, a lifestyle and DIY blog. Katherine has been such a gracious hostess, connecting a huge group of amazing bloggers over 50 who are excited and living life to the fullest.
Katherine asked me a couple of questions so her readers could get to know me better. I think you might like my answers, too!
On average how long does it take you to create a blog post with images, etc. ?
I’m a lifestyle blogger but many of my posts revolve around DIY projects or easy recipes (this healthy Pasta Primavera with Grilled Chicken is yummy!). Not including the time it takes to create the project, the staging, photographing, editing pics, uploading to the blog, writing content, and all the necessary back end technical details to make the post successful probably takes 10-20 hours per post. There’s a lot that goes into my posts that no one ever sees!
What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Food related would be chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream but time wise it would be watching TV in the middle of the day for a few minutes, something that rarely ever happens!
