So I finally decided to make the leap and join the blogging world. I have been following blogs for awhile now. I enjoy keeping up with far away friends, crafty moms whom I have never met, and military wives from which I gain wisdom, all from the comfort of the little corner office in our bedroom.
I am not sure how often I will post here, but I hope to share family updates, crafty things, and anything else that I find amusing. The first order of business is to announce that I have opened an Etsy store The Purple Elephant in order to be a part of a big event that starts Monday Feb. 16th!
About 2 weeks ago I received an email from a family member asking everyone to pray for a little girl name Cora who was diagnosed with cancer. A couple of days later I found that family's blog and read every post with tears streaming down my face. I didn't even know them (though I did some research and I played HS basketball against the mom and my grandpa lives in their neck of the woods) but my heart broke as I followed their journey, one a parent should never have to walk.
Cora's story has touched many people across the blogging community, a blogger that I follow was so touched that she decided to put her talents to good use and it snowballed from there. I am excited to be part of a huge Etsy sale benefiting Cora Paige, more details to come in the next post!
