Getting Started

Well, I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while now but wasn't quite sure how to do it, what to write about, or if I had anything to say. After much thought (because I tend to overthink everything), I decided that I would finally do it. I would finally start sharing my thoughts with "the world"--at this point the world is just the laptop in front of me and myself, but I believe that this can become a bigger deal and create quite a following. My goals for this blog are to share my experiences with you, to give you a little inside insight into the service industry, and to capture memories for my family and the future. I don't know about you, but I am awfully excited about this and the possibility of greatness--and fun.

So, when I got more serious about writing this blog, I turned to the greatest way to share/get advice on the internet--Facebook. I asked a series of questions that I was curious about regarding blogs, but most importantly I wanted to know HOW... How do I know what to share? How do I start? How do I get a following? How do I know if what I'm writing is what people want to read? How do I know what I'm doing is right?

After much advice from such great women that shared their blogs with me, that shared what has worked for them, and that shared what they think I should do, it was very clear that everyone agreed that I should just share what's important to me and not worry about the future details. They think I should share whatever's on my mind, whatever's important at the time,  and whatever I think I want to share. What great advice! Why didn't I think of that?

So I guess now I will do a little introduction of myself (maybe I should've started there...but oh well). My name is Kristen. I'm a 25 year old Southern woman from a little town in Oklahoma. My boyfriend is A.J. (a.k.a. the most wonderful man in the world) and we have been together for almost three years. I couldn't ask for a better partner for me. We own our own house. He provides for me. He would do anything in the whole world for me... Guess it's true love then huh? It is for me. Now, just waiting on that "rock". I know it's happening soon and trust me--It WILL be updated on here as soon as it happens!
Here's a picture of the happy couple...
Aww aren't we cute?!?

A little more about me--I'm a manager of a restuarant. It is an interesting line of work, but I love it. There's never a dull moment. I'm sure there will be plenty of stories that will come up on here about it--I know you can't wait to hear them lol. Also, I'm an aunt of the greatest, most adorable 7 1/2 month old nephew in the world--love him so very much, and I'm not sure how I survived the first 24 years of my life without him. I'm also the oldest of 5 kids (I have 3 brothers and 1 sister) and the greatest mom, dad, and step-mom ever. I'm so very blessed to have the best family a girl could ask for. I can't wait to share more of my life with you, but that will have to be saved for another day and another time.

Thank you so very much for reading my first post. I hope you liked it, and hopefully you will enjoy the rest of my posts as well.
