Welcome to my blog! My name is Holly. I am a wife and mother of two children (a 6-year-old girl and a 1-year-old boy). I teach music full-time in a middle school, give music lessons privately in my home, and direct a local church choir. To learn more about me, check out the “About” page above.
I’ve been journaling privately since the first grade. I love to write. It’s therapeutic and artistic. However, having others read my writing is extremely nerve-wracking for me. I think having someone see me naked may be less stressful. This is a ridiculous way to feel about something I love doing, so I decided to dive in and share my writing with the internet.
Why “Taking You With Me”?
In searching for a blog title, I kept coming back to the idea of life as a journey. I love how the phrase, “taking you with me,” can have so many meanings:
- To my husband – “Life is an adventure and so I’m glad I’m taking you with me.”
- To my kids – “I’m going to the grocery store and I’m taking you with me.”
- To my readers – “As I blog about my life, I’m happy to be taking you with me.”
And then, there’s the most common use of the phrase:
- “If I go down, I’m taking you with me!”
In any case, “taking you with me” implies that we’re going somewhere, whether physically, emotionally, spiritually or otherwise, and we’re not doing it alone.
So, thank you for joining me on this journey!
