I have been wanting to change the name of my blog for awhile now. When I started it last year I was not sure what I was going to be writing about. I thought it would probably center around being the mom of two little boys and all the stories, laughs, tears, and (hopefully) insights that go along with that. Which, in some ways, it is.
The name Bringing Up Ballast Boys made it sound like a 'mommy blog' -- and I love mommy blogs, they are great. But this site is not really a 'mommy blog' in the sense that I don't use it primarily for folks to keep up with what my kids are doing, how they're growing, etc. I throw that stuff in once in awhile, but that hasn't emerged as the central purpose of the site.
Instead this has become a place where I bring my thoughts, questions, prayers, discoveries... the things that carry weight in my life. And it just so happens that the meaning of my name fits in with this nicely, something I hadn't noticed until someone pointed it out to me recently. So, there you have it - my newly christened blog. Enjoy.
