Starting a blog was the farthest thing on my mind at the start of this year, there were other things that seem to be more interesting to me to pursue like starting a cake business, change jobs and have another baby (perhaps not in that particular order)! Anyway, it wasn’t until my dear husband said to me you’ve got too much stuff (information and experience) to keep to yourself before I realised that there are other things that I should pursue, one of which is starting a blog. Therein lies the birth of this platform.
The next thing was choosing a name for my blog. Oh, what a time I had weighing and discarding all kinds of names until I asked myself a question that “what was I looking to share with everyone out there?” Then, the answer came to me – things I take pleasure in and express myself through. It’s got to be something with PLEASURES in it, then the words OPEN PLEASURES struck me and I said YES, I’VE GOT IT!
Open pleasures? Why open, when all we know are secret pleasures? Well, for me all the above sections are pleasures I thoroughly enjoy in the open and I’m proud to share articles on. So, get ready as we explore my world and I look forward to you sharing some of your pleasures with me.
The first thing I would like to share with you is a little about myself. I am a Christian who loves God and have a relationship with Him, I am a wife to a loving husband, a woman that I’ve gone through fertility challenges and overcame (more to come on that) which makes me a mother to my beautiful daughter and another on the way! I am a lawyer by schooling and training and a banker as of now. I am a woman who loves to bake and decorate cakes (watch out for how it all started), cooking, crocheting and loom knitting. I also love reading Christian fiction and I know I would be sharing some of the ones that have reassured and spurred me with you and I so love to sing and listen to Christian Music.
So, there you have it. A little about myself.
For everything I have done or currently involved with, I like to ask myself why am I doing what I’m doing? For this blog, I’m doing it to share recipes, patterns, life experiences, lessons learnt, blessed and inspired words but most of all, I’m doing it to INSPIRE someone out there.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW? DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU ARE DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING?
