A friend recently asked me over dinner if I had considered blogging. I hadn’t. But now I can’t stop thinking about it! I have always been a writer in my head, not an acknowledged one in any form but I find enjoyment in writing. In primary school it was stories, in high school it was short stories and poetry, in my 20s letters (yes snail mail) and in my 30s email and quirky anecdotes to share on facebook – I have always found a way to release the inner dialogue. And so now my blogging journey begins.
My name is Peggy. I am a 40 year old Mum, wife, daughter and friend to many. I work full time running a small business but being Mum is my favourite job. In short I see myself as kind, happy, positive (a friend once called me ‘the eternal optimist’ – I like that), hardworking, direct, sometimes moody and anxious, and I am in total love with my family. I like the simple things in life. I know from personal experience that happiness is in fact a state of mind. The last 8 years have been a quest for me for inner peace, a still, clear mind and happiness. More about that later.
At this point I would like to share on my blog the things that make me smile: funny stories, recipes (I have a penchant for Finnish delights), places I like to visit, shops and sights I get a kick out of and maybe even a photo or two.
Thanks for dropping by, what’s your name?
