The idea of Wonderland is a place to escape to while finding yourself. This is my personal wonderland.
I am a mom and a teacher. I throw myself into work and taking care of my son, that I often find that I am not making any time for myself. I began writing in a journal most everyday, and realized that it was a great way to take a few minutes to myself and to help alleviate my stress levels. I write everything from recipes and project ideas to life happenings and teaching experiences. I decided that it was time to promote my writings from paper to digital.
This is my blog. My name is Kendra and I have a wonderful 10 year old son and am married to an amazing guy who has been in our lives since little man was 9 months old. I love to read and create different projects. I am also a music junkie, which is one reason why I became a music teacher. I am a pintrest junkie, so you can bet that there will be projects from there as well. I can not wait to get started!
I want to take this time to give you an insight into why I started this blog.
As a child, I fell in love with the story of Alice in Wonderland. The whimsical aspect of the story captured my imagination and it helped developed a foundation for my life. I know it may sound weird, but the truth of the matter is that I view the story as a message that although you don’t know what is coming, and at times it may feel bleak, but if you keep going, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and there is always hope for what is to come. Wonderland was a place were you learned lessons and coped with life.
I am a mom and a teacher. My life is full of ups and downs. Recently, the downs were making me feel as though I was drowning. Every time I felt as though I was near the surface, something would grab my leg and pull me back down. I would find myself crying just to express some form of emotion. I came to a point where I could no longer put my family through that. My free time was dedicated to spending time with little man, reading, writing, and crafting.
At one point, I began carrying a notebook around that when I felt near the edge, I would write. Most days, there was no organization to my writing. I would go from writing lyrics, to notes about my upcoming wedding, to notes about my work. I began enjoying my writing and decided that it was time to take it up a notch.
Every evening, after little man was in bed, I will read. It is an escape from the reality of the world. I read all kinds of books and various authors. I am in love with the fact that little man loves going to the library and the local used book store. We try to go to one or the other at least once every other week and get new books to read. My book addiction continues to grow and I love that little man’s is as well.
When we are home, little man and I like to draw, paint, and do various crafts. I am proud to admit that I am a pinterest junkie and am always finding various crafts and projects for me and little man to work on. This summer we will be creating a lot of projects and science experiments and we are so excited.
I have no reservations about this blog. I have no idea if it is going to be read or looked at. I don’t know what kind of reaction that it is going to have, but it doesn’t matter. This blog is my personal “Wonderland”. It is a place that I can go to express my thoughts and projects. It is just a small way that I can escape from my reality for just small moments at a time.
I hope that you enjoy wondering through my wonderland!
