Time for some blog confessions?  Of course! There's always something to confess right?  Even as  a non-Catholic I've got that part straight. :) Okay.  My confession is that I am a chicken. For a long time I've kind-of, sort-of been wishing I could be a writer.  Let's face it, nobody puts as much work as I do into a blog without some kind of ulterior motive and I never wanted to admit that mine is because I really like writing.  But now I'm 'fessing up: I like writing, or rather story-telling and communicating and I think I'm ready to start really trying to be a writer.  What kind of writer, I don't know... but in the spirit of trying not to wuss out I actually submitted an application to be a paid guest blogger for ING Direct.  And I took it seriously, thinking through my app carefully and EDITING the final document.  This my friends is progress.  And I blame all of you who read this blog.  I blame you for all your sweet, kind comments and for all of you audacious enough to suggest that I should be writing a book about our little trip to meet Colombia.  I blame you all for giving me the encouragement I needed to get serious.

Maybe I'll get the job and maybe I won't but trying is the first step.  Thank you to each of you whose encouragement gave the courage to try.  I'll let you know how it turns out.
