Missing in Action in the World of Blogging

After almost blogging daily for 9 months straight I decided to take a few days off blogging. 

I wanted to recharge and see the direction that I would take this blog. I have decided that I will continue blogging, but not on a daily basis.  There are many reasons for my decision, but mainly it is because my kids are requiring more of my attention.  Mornings were always my time to work on my blog and send it out to the blogosphere.  Lately the boys have wanted my company in the morning so we typically have a lazy breakfast, play and then just watch a show on television while cuddling.

Also, I will now be playing a new role in Skappo, the restaurant that Michael co-owns with his family.  I am officially being trained by my husband to be Skappo’s bookkeeper.  Quickbooks 101, basic accounting and bookkeeping are in my agenda!

In the last couple of weeks I have rearranged our office and I have a new super organized desk and area that is dedicated to my new role with numbers.

I still have another section of my office that I am keeping in its original, cluttered state because I see this as my creative nook where I will continue my writing and vintage selling endeavors.

Writing has always been a passion of mine so I want to continue blogging, but on a weekly rather than daily basis.  I hope you will continue following www.ichoosehappynow.com as I will continue talking about life as the wife of a restaurant owner, parenthood, traveling around Connecticut and Italy, the Philippines and more.

Feel free and click around my blog to see what I have written in past days and months. 

I will also give you clues about the book that I am working on.  It will be different from my self published e-book, “Christmas Without Chimneys”, and a fun read all together.

Thank you for letting me share and have a great day!


Blogging For Myself and Anyone Who Happens to Come By

computerMy blogging journey started last June 21, 2011.  I made a promise to myself that I would write a post a day for one year.  Two days ago I missed that target because it was Easter Monday and we decided to spend a family day together, so I took a rest day from my blog.

When I started this blog I would write my posts early in the morning, but lately my kids have been wanting my attention in the morning hours.  The blogging I would do in the afternoons has also been interrupted by Rocco, my 2-year-old who has decided to stop his naps.

Evenings have now become my time to jot down a few ideas for blog posts.  I will still try to do a blog a day, but if I miss my personal deadline I will not stress out about it.

Recently, I was asked why I blog and what I would do after the year was over. Would I continue blogging or move on to another chapter of my life?

I blog because it is fun and I love to write and tell stories.  My one year of blogging is coming up on June 21, 2012.  Only time will tell if I continue my blogging journey or if I find another outlet of creativity.

Michael, my husband, is my biggest fan.  He keeps on encouraging me to keep the positive blogging going as I have been able to touch his life and some readers lives along the way.

Thank you for letting me share and have a great day!

Happy Anniversary to Blogging – 6 Months of Blogging Everyday


On June 21, 2011 I discovered the world of blogging.  I always heard about people who blogged, but I thought that was what others did and not me.

My sister sent me her old laptop and I started my blog journey.  I was determined to write everyday for one year.  

I was and still am committed to blogging positively everyday.  I have stayed true to not passing on complaints or negative thoughts.

I really feel that with blogging, “The computer is my canvas and daily life is my muse.”

Thank you for joining me in this journey. It is amazing that I am at my halfway mark!

Have a great day!
