It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life...

For years I've thought about blogging. It sounded fun and they look adorable. But I just didn't think my life was exciting enough to frequently document it online. So I remained blog-less.

But then I came across some really neat blogs- all about people with simple, ordinary lives, made cool by their own, well, for lack of a better word, coolness. In the last six months or so, I've kind of become addicted to blogs. I've probably read YOURS and LOVED it.

The other day a friend (with a lovely blog herself) suggested I start my own in order to document my adventures in grad school.

The idea stuck, so here I am. And so I begin with a quote from "The Lord of the Rings". I love the montage in "Fellowship..." when Bilbo is describing the seemingly quaint existence of the Hobbits. You can watch it HERE:

Feel free to hum that lovely tune for the rest of the day. Welcome to my simple life. And yes, I do believe in celebrating it. :)
