A Quick Stroll Down Memory Lane

Two years ago, today, was the very first Calculated Chaos post. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing & had absolutely no real vision for this blog. (It is debatable about how much I know what’s going on now either, but that’s beside the point.)

Magic in Our Lives

Life is hard. It is messy & intense & crazy. . . & beautiful & downright magical. All you have to do is look around to find some of its magic. . .

Yesterday, as the handsome husband I were having a little chat, we came to a realization. . . There are so many little things that just added up into this perfect, magically BLESSED moment.

Let me attempt to explain:

‘Plum’s Cyber Puddle

A bit over a year ago, I decided to start my blogging adventure & I had absolutely no idea what I was doing! (On many levels, I still don’t; figuring it all out is half the fun!) As such, I began a blog to simply start poking around on WordPress, to learn a bit about the site. The “problem” occurred when I started another blog when I was ready to begin posting. Yep; I wound up with two blogs & only began posting on one — the one that wasn’t attached to my user name (mochamama0205). Oh well. What’s a gal to do?

Well, while Calculated Chaos (the site you’re currently reading) is my main blog & is, obviously, up & running with several posts (& is the blog I intend to nourish further), there was still the issue of how to best utilize the “mochamama0205” space. A friend, through a FaceBook chat discussing blog formatting & inspiration, made a passing suggestion of posting a simple entry, re-directing any visitors to Calculated Chaos, thus ending my dilemma. In the same conversation, on the subject of “html” (I said I know very little about it, but would love to learn!), I mentioned that, years ago, my mother had the equivalent of a blog, where she was learning html & that I should blog about it sometime.  It occurred to me, I could take my friend’s suggestion a step further & do both, tying the vacant page back to my blog, as well as commemorating the page my mother maintained years ago. . .

It’s Not Personal; It’s Practical

It has been QUITE some time since I even entertained the idea of marriage. I have been content with the thought that if I ever married, I would without-a-doubt be MUCH older. This just goes to show that meeting the perfect person FOR ME has made ALL the difference in the world. I have absolutely no doubts that this is the man who I will spend the rest of my life with. It’s quite a lovely feeling.  Continue reading “It’s Not Personal; It’s Practical”
