New Beginnings...

Hmmmm, where to start? I guess I'll start from the end...the end of something I once loved and enjoyed very much. I have another somewhat successful blog that I had to bid farewell to after a particularly painful period in my life. For those of us that blog, we've learned the joy it brings by allowing us to express our thoughts and interest as well as the opportunity to meet amazing people from all over the world.

Most blogs are not private and open for anyone to access, typically not a problem for most, but I learned the hard way how our words can be twisted and used against us. My former employer accessed my blog and took something very light-hearted and innocent and tried to use it against me...it turned my world upside down.

I tried to keep my former blog going, but the truth is...it never again felt like mine. I stayed away for months on end, then I would post sporadically, but I was never free to be who I was before and knew it was time to close that chapter of my life and start a new one.  So here I go...perhaps a little more guarded, a lot more private, but ready to explore my journey more than ever! I'm glad you're here...it's going to be A Lovely Journey!!


  1. Oh sweetie, I am so excited for you and your new blog!!! It will truly be YOURS! I can't wait to join you on your lovely journey!... thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today... I am signing up right this minute as your first follower!!! Love you!!!... xoxo Julie Marie

  2. How exciting,.....i enjoy you in your journey if you want...i will be there for you.....love...XXX...

  3. Now I understand a little - I wish you happiness in your new blog - it sounds like you've had the most difficult of times. It also sounds like you are coming out the other side and I hope your (lovely) journey continues.

    I'm (relatively) new to blogging but already understand how precious it is. The balance between being open but keeping an element of privacy is tricky- and it sounds like someone took advantage of that.
