I decided to jump on board the Blogging101 train, because I am realistic about where I am at. I have visions of grand blog posts dancing in my head (much like sugar plums, though the reference is about a month late!) and would love to find my niche where I can gain a following and have a place for creative expression. But realistically I am in need of a push to get started, and to do so in the right direction. So here we go!
My name is Mary and I am here (blogging) because I draw so much inspiration in all aspects of my life from other blogs and things I find online, and my goal is be a source for inspiration as well as I find my way as a writer and as an individual.
I have spent the past few years working constantly and not always taking the time to appreciate and find joy in the everyday. I started exploring freelance writing, and have since fell down the rabbit hole into travel writing as well as content creation and ghost writing. Writing is enjoyable for me, and I want to experience every aspect I can. I feel that a blog is the next step in the right direction.
A Bit About Me
I am passionate about travel, living a fun and meaningful life, and love beautiful and inspiring things. I am sucker for pretty decorative things that I don’t need but feel they will make my home and workspace more enjoyable. I am a teacher in special education, and am fascinated with the inspiring stories I see unfold within my students. I have two dogs that I take far too many pictures of (one of which is is at this very moment trying to climb onto my lab as I type).
Gather Moments is my attempt to collect and share inspiring stories and moments from everyday life and travel that help create a beautiful life. As a lifestyle blog, I am hoping to fill it with content relating to travel, home decor/life, food, and sharing found inspiration.
