Blondies and Bliss

I believe everything has a purpose. This afternoon, I took care of mundane tasks. Folding laundry. Cleaning my bedroom. Doing dishes. My reward? Well, I got my just “desserts”. I baked chocolate chip blondies. Yum! What could be more rewarding than warm, soft chocolate chip blondie? Yet, the question remains. Was their a purpose to my afternoon’s labors?
Yes, indeed. On a personal note, I feel accomplished. I feel at peace with my surroundings (my house in this case). And well, those choco chip blondies? They have a purpose! Boyfriend is coming over soon, and the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. It’s true for my man at least. The “have to do” things are meaningful. I like that fact about life 🙂
On a different note, I’m starting to read The Hunger Games. I watched the movie last night, and it was decent. I’d like to get through Catching Fire by Thanksgiving, the day I go to see the movie with my family. Have you read The Hunger Games series? Should I be excited about the reads? the next movie?

Good morning, sunshine!

Good morning, sunshine! I started my Sunday morning like any other. I started my coffeemaker, and I fed my pups. Meanwhile, I gave my wee kitty a quick scratch behind the ears. I sipped my fresh, hot coffee while watching Cooking Channel, and  then a thought occurred to me. Why not start a blog today? So, here I am.

Recently, I decided I would start a blog for two reasons. First, I love love love to write! Second, I enjoy reading blogs. I hope to have a few followers, but the truth is, I’m writing this blog for me. I’ve got thoughts I’d like to share with the world. I’m excited to write and to see where it takes me.

So, welcome to my blog. My name is Alyssa, and I am a twenty-something in Virginia. Thanks for starting on this adventure with me. I look forward to learning and to connecting with you.
