Alabama Women Bloggers Introduction


I am a new writer for Alabama Women Bloggers and am so glad I ran across them on a quiet rainy night and have joined the team!

As a note of introduction to each other we are doing a “link up” of our members…..hope you will pull up a chair,

send me a link, and lets get to know each other!

A Taurus with a recent birthday on May 3~ I am rounding up towards the big number with lots yet on my bucket list!

I was blessed to get a taste of the Birmingham Blogging life where I wrote for MagicCityPost.com before moving to Lake Tuscaloosa with my husband of ten years~ Chad (back near home in West Alabama~ Livingston).  That is where I jumped off into the world of regular blogging.

Both of my B’HAM favorites are hosting meet ups soon. Javacia Bower is hosting a Blogista Mini Conference on June 19 www.thebloganistaconference.eventbrite.com
(www.seejanewrite.com)

and Wade Kwon (a male but I met him through See Jane Write~ so hope that counts)

The social media conference is sponsored with Southern Company and called Y’all Connect –  in Birmingham on June 13.

If you can’t make the conference he usually offers follow up information afterwards.

I had a blog in 2000, before it was called blogging and have since written for newspaper, Montgomery Living Magazine (I was an interior design major) and Southern Beauty Magazine as SOUL Editor doing cover interviews with LeAnn Rimes, Emily Proctor and other celebs.

The thing about blogging…we don’t fly anywhere anymore for the “story”….it is all by phone or email, but still just as exciting as we want to make it! I am dodging internet bursts as I post this from the beach!

I have a son, 20 (musician (brentmccolloughmusic.com), an 18 year old daughter who is headed to Bama next year, a step daughter recording in Nashville and a nine year old prissy blonde haired little girl who loves softball and has a Black belt in karate.

I’d love to connect on Google 

I love ALABAMA and have lived in Montgomery for eight years, lived on the white sands of the Alabama Beaches for four years and after evacuations have decided I am hoping to be on the rock of Lake Tuscaloosa as my “forever home base” where I can cheer on the Tide each fall. I also frequent forestry meetings at Auburn as I am a REALTOR with Duckworth Morris Real Estate.

I still cry when I watch Forrest Gump, more for the brilliant mind of the writer than the actual show as I am half way through writing a novel.

I sell my paintings at festivals in the South, particularly on the coast, hopefully soon to be in Seaside. I am also working on a series of photography on canvas.

ALLISON ADAMS ARTIST SITE

I thought I was having a heart attack two weeks ago…..and Bell’s Palsy…I was healed 🙂 another story for another day.
Still dragging around songs, I have written that my musician son calls “poems”, but after thinking I wouldn’t be able to talk or sing.

I’m not the best but hey, I have the songs in me! This year I will be getting them out one way or another!

I am ready to live every day like the last and embrace who I am…work on the bad, embrace the good and instead of
complaining….just try to be a better person!

Watch out for THE WORLD WIDE WEB


Watch out for THE WORLD WIDE WEB

 

I have been caught up in the world wide web.

Last week, I found that my brain and body finally said “ENOUGH”!

We ALL need to take time to rest, to re-charge.

My body, actually my face, said, “Enough is enough” and shut down, literally. They call it Bell’s Palsy. I had never heard of it. When I mentioned it to people I got common responses.

“My brother had that for six months! My sister has that.”

Come to find out, the bug man’s brother still has it and it has been a year.

Bell’s Palsy is a virus many of us carry, but stress seems to stir it on. I thought until now, “I thrive on stress!”

Two real estate closings and a major city event I was taking charge of later (The first ever Bark in the Park with the REALTORS Association) has changed my thinking!

There are so many things that tug at us day after day. We have to sift through the important ones and learn to say NO. I am saying this to myself as much as you.

So this year, as my daughter graduates from high school, I am accompanying her on her senior trip to a destination with NO phone service, NO internet and no deadlines. Just sand, surf and relaxation (as much as can be done with teenagers!).

On the flight home I am praying to come back refreshed, with clarity on the next step for me here in this busy world.

I wear many hats, a mom to three, loving the arts, craving the ink on the page and enjoying real estate here in Tuscaloosa and my column with Druid City Living Newspaper about Lake Living.

A special love I have for the state of Alabama I am planning on sharing in a new Blog Post each week for ALABAMA WOMEN BLOGGERS as their SWEET HOME ALABAMA Coordinator.

Yes, I know, to you it sounds like I am not planning on slowing down at all, but I can assure you, I will be picking the projects I love and that have meaning.

For your TO DO List as summer and kids and busy schedules try to seep in….

1) Carve in some time with your kids that enriches YOU as well,

2) Make a date night with your hubby once a week if possible (or yourself),

3) Take time to soak in a hot tub with lavender, some bath salts and YOUR favorite music (music does soothe the soul),

And every morning…wake up THANKING GOD for the blessings.

I am thinking him that my lesson only lasted a few hours and that I was healed…more on that later!

Have a BLESSED summer!
