Return of the Blogger (And an Introduction)

My desire to return to blogging was prompted by a couple different things. One was a Christmas present from an old friend. When it comes to my writing she's always been my biggest fan. (And she's one of the few people I know "in real life" who ever read this blog.) She gave me a book of writing prompts for Christmas, for when writer's block hits. She lives in South Korea currently but I was lucky enough to get to spend the day with her and her son on Friday. We talked about blogging a little bit, and while I still think she should start her own blog, the discussion made me realize I miss this.

A Thirty-One Day Blog Challenge graphic popped up in my news feed on Pinterest recently as well and it seemed like a good way to start getting back in to the habit of blogging. I'm a few days late, and I'm not sure I'll use all the prompts, but it's nice to have lots of options.

I am going to use the day 1 prompt today, even though it's already the fifth of January, and give you a quick introduction.

I'm Sara and I'm 32-years-old. I've been married for about five and half years to an amazing guy. (Jonathan, or J here.) We live just outside Halifax, Nova Scotia with our two furbabies. We have a beagle named Daisy and a beautiful cat named Sydney. They were both adopted from the SPCA and the expression "who rescued who?" is very fitting in my case. I work as a department manager at a grocery store. I'm in charge of the cashiers and customer service staff and I'm one of those rare breed of people who actually really enjoy what I do. (Not every day, but most of them.) I'm an avid reader, and my favourite way to spend my down time is curled up on the couch with a book or watching Netflix with my husband.
