So here I am... call it bitten by the blogging bug, but I'm making a go of it.  Life seems to be coming at me faster than I would like.  Perhaps my blog will slow me down and help me reflect on and absorb all of the splendidness.  

In making this blog, I literally spent hours searching for "just the right" layout.  I'm not convinced that this is it, but for now I'll let it work its magic on me and perhaps I'll end up keeping it.  The title of my blog was much easier.  I just adore the word S-E-R-E-N-D-I-P-I-T-Y.  Doesn't it just capture the joy of all things simple?  And after much pondering about my life, I've come to realize that my greatest bliss comes from the simplest of things - my husband's laid back demeanor, my son's sloppy toddler kisses, my daughter's sweet baby lips, my puppy's wet little nose... ahhhh - to relish...  back to my title.  Shabby comes from my obsession with all things primitive and vintage.  The grungier the look, the warmer my heart!  I fantasize about a time when I might find myself stitching away the lazy afternoon rays of sunshine.  Of course, this little fantasy won't be complete until I'm also sitting in the crafting nook of my old farmhouse, staring at my kids playing underneath the big weeping willow tree.  A girl can dream...

Well, my first post is complete and yet I have so much more to say.  Maybe this blogging thing is just what I need!
