First blog post

Creative title, isn’t it? After many years of reading friends’ blogs, it is time for me to start my own. It took expecting a baby to motivate me (along with friends’ encouragement), so here I am. Of course, I couldn’t start a blog without a good name. As I was reading one morning, I was led to Psalm 81:1 … “Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.” This blog is my little outlet in living a joyful life aloud. It will follow our growing family and my journey in being a wife, mom, wannabe chef, photographer and gardener. Hopefully, friends and family will enjoy these bits and pieces of our life together and feel a little more connected. If anything, we’ll have a way to look back on these precious moments. I’ve never been good at keeping a consistent journal, so I do appreciate your encouragement!
