I claimed this blog about one year ago to capture those fleeting thoughts from my wine-soaked mind. You know the ones.

It was essentially a way to alleviate Happy Hour guilt.

Life, however, had other plans for me and I discovered I was pregnant shortly thereafter. Needless to say the great big act of creation managed to derail all those little hypothetical ones.

But now, a whole year later, I am determined to etch out a moment or two each day for myself, my thoughts and my keyboard. To find my words again just as I’ll help my beautiful baby girl find hers.

And so, be it sipping on a glass of red wine or munching on a grape popsicle, I will grit those purple teeth and grin.

And write.
