Wow, where do I start? I guess first I should say “Hi! My name is Becky and welcome to my blog!” This site has been a while in the making and I’m so glad it’s finally come together. I’m not a total newbie to blogging, in fact, I’ve been a food blogger for about 4 years and love it! You might be wondering why I decided to change something that wasn’t broken. Sure I still love playing in the kitchen, but there’s a lot more to my life than that. My husband and I just had our first child so we are deep in the new adventures of parenthood. I’m also passionate about my faith and as a Catholic convert, have a special perspective on religion that I want to share more. I thought of creating a totally new blog many months ago but really waffled over it – my issue boiled down to intentions.
My worry was that I had the wrong intentions. There are so many times that I read certain bloggers posts and just want to be BFFs with the authors and their families. I didn’t want to be a copycat, just trying to tag along with the cool bloggers that I admire. But after much deliberation and prayer, I recognized that my intentions were in the right place. I don’t care if this blog is crazy successful with thousands of hits each day. I don’t care if other bloggers recognize me. While those things are great, I realized that this blog is ultimately for me. I want to still have a place where I can share yummy recipes. I want to document the joys and struggles of motherhood. I want to reflect on my faith and hopefully let it uplift others in the process.
So with the best of intentions, welcome and thanks for visiting day one of Vita Dulcis!
