Hey there! My name is Mary Ellen and let me start by saying, I don’t exactly consider myself to be a “blogger”. I’m not very good at taking trendy, ultra cool photographs and sometimes I have more bad hair days than good ones. so then why start a blog you may ask? Well I believe everyone’s story is worth being shared and someone once told me I was good with words. I also believe that everyone has gifts they have been given, and that it is a shame not to use those gifts.

My education background is in Elementary Education. I love teaching and I intend to spend my life pursuing that dream. I also love cooking, baking, eating what I cook and bake, running, snuggling up with a good book on a rainy day, green tea, my crazy family, and my studly husband.

This blog is a place for me to share a little bit about what I’m learning in life. I think people are a lot more relatable than we allow ourselves to be; simply because either we’re afraid to be vulnerable, or show our true colors. But when we can laugh, cry, share and connect rather than compete and compare, everyone is uplifted a little bit. So here I go… trying to connect and share in just a word.

P.S. See, I told you I wasn’t a blogger… I just used “but” to start a sentence. My 7th grade English teacher would frown.
