Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
The Dwelling Tree is a blog about life, love, food, family and faith. It is a real blog written by a real girl who is not your typical blogger. I am not especially crafty or fashionable. Yet there is one thing I truly love to do: write. I decided blogging is as good as any venue to write about honest issues regarding marriage, parenting, struggles, joy, faith, and of course- food!
I think life is simple and boils down to a few important things: sharing life with those you love, marveling at the small moments, sitting around a dinner table and partaking in meals together, and learning more each day about our existence here on earth and the love bestowed upon us by a gracious God. Everything else is gravy.
So join me at The Dwelling Tree. Get cozy and choose a spot to hang out.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Dwell: To exist in a space or state, or to fasten ones attention.
Tree: A perennial woody plant that has a single, self supporting trunk. The roots branch and spread out widely below the ground. Trees tend to be live for a long time, some reaching a thousand years old.
When I was a young girl, I had a tree in my back yard that I loved. It was named "tree", of course. I sat with my back to the trunk of "tree" many times. I colored there, read books there, and looked at clouds. I will never forget the day our tree had to be cut down. I was devastated. I kept a leaf from "tree" and vowed I would never forget my friend.
Trees fascinate me. They create places for animals to live and dwell, provide shade for people and plants, and are deeply rooted and self-sustaining. I find them a lovely picture of the woman I would like to become. I wish to be rooted deep in my beliefs and values, able to give shade and a place of comfort for people, and be a friend who provides a good place to "dwell" for a while. Thus, I named this blog "The Dwelling Tree" because that is my goal: a site where people can gather and just be, think deep and grow roots, and find comfort.
I have been blogging since...
