First Things First

Welcome to bumblebird blog!


My name is Andrea and I’m glad you stopped by! This is my very first blog post so I hope you will wade through this with me and maybe even feel up to leaving a comment below.


My vision for this blog is one where I discuss various topics that are on my mind, whether they be related to faith, family, friends, or even just something I find funny. I want to share some things that interest me like recipes, crafts, or great books I’m reading. And part of what I want to do here is include perspective from others, so hopefully you will see guest blog posts from time to time.


I promise to always try to be straight-forward and sincere as I share my thoughts with you and I would ask that all comments be kept respectful. My goal is not only to share my views with you but also to learn from you so I welcome your thoughts!


I believe that there is much to be learned in the routines of daily life. Jennie Allen said in Restless that, “Diapers and floors and food remind us that we are all human, and there is beauty and character formed in the mundane.” Daily life does not have to be meaningless even if it is routine and boring sometimes. If we can learn something about each other from this blog that broadens our perspectives of each others lives a little, then I will consider it a success!


My first blog post would not be complete without a shout-out to #the4500. #the4500 is a group of (mostly) women who came together in support of Jen Hatmaker’s upcoming book For the Love. These women are the most supportive and kind people I have ever come across on the Internet, which can often be a hostile environment. They are a part of the reason I decided to begin a blog and their encouragement has been invaluable.


That’s it for today! I’m hoping to post here at least twice a month so it would be great if you would stop by again! I’ll leave you now with another great quote, this one from Anne Lamott in Bird by Bird, “All you can give us is what life is about from your point of view.”


So this is life from my point of view!


May your coffee be strong and your burdens be light,

    I’d must examine with you here. Which is not one thing I usually do! I take pleasure in studying a submit that will make people think. Additionally, thanks for allowing me to comment!
