I was never really in to the blogging world until my soon to be sister-in-law started blogging…and then I was hooked! I would stare at my email inbox each evening awaiting her daily post…I couldn’t wait to read what she had to share. Of course I might be biased because she is my family…but I happen to love her blog :)
So I found myself signing up for WordPress because I wanted to comment on a couple of her posts. During the sign up process they pressure you into coming up with a username. Well, in the past, I had cutsie usernames that included words such as princess and baller. But now that I am much more “grown up” I couldn’t possibly rely on my “go to” usernames of the past. So I wrestled with the username question and finally settled on bighlilh in a hurry (to represent the first letter of my daughter and my names). But when I got serious about this whole blog thing I vowed to come up with something more clever, more catchy. Little did I know how tough that would be. So after hours of deliberation and enlisting help from my family, In Her Chucks was born!
Tennis shoes have always been a love for me…well maybe more of an obsession than a love at some points in my life. I used to have literally hundreds of the same shoes in every color imaginable. But as I have tried to simplify my life, I have settled down with Mr. Chuck Taylor and am loyal to him and his All Stars. And now instead of having duffel bags full of shoes in my garage, I am happy with a shoe rack of Chuck Taylors in every color :)
I look forward to learning how to blog and sharing my life experiences with you (whoever “you” may be). I am eager to share my lessons as a mommy, wife and homemaker and learn from each other how we can successfully navigate this journey of life. And because I have learned that sometimes the terrain of this journey can be a little rocky and rough…I choose to always be ready with my comfy, cozy and cute chucks!
