I never thought I’d write a blog. First of all, I hated writing when I was a kid. I didn’t even like reading much. So why now?
I read my dear friend Irene’s blog last year when she challenged herself to take on 15+ sports – skydiving, boxing, mountain biking, running a marathon. She not only amazed and inspired me with her determination and grit, but she also sparked something in me. Maybe it’s time to get out of my comfort zone?
I also recently found a box of old letters, postcards, and journal. Reading the funny, loving, and supportive words from family and friends and re-reading some of my melodramatic words made me laugh, smile, and remember the special and poignant moments of my life. I haven’t been as good about capturing things in writing and people don’t send as much snail mail anymore, so I thought a blog might be a good new way to record moments.
Now what to write…
My dear new friend Vanessa loves hikes and has been great about getting me out and about too. There are some amazing places in the Bay Area to enjoy and explore! And the weather can’t be beat! So I’m going to write about our hikes – where we go, who we meet, what we see – and the food we eat afterwards.
It’s a new year…I can’t wait to sweat and eat with old and new friends!
