Welcome to my blog!

Today is my birthday. (Actually, a little less than an hour from now will officially be my birthday, but being a true Leo I'm never averse to starting the celebration early.) So I decided to give myself my very own blog for my birthday. But it's not really just for my birthday...

My plans for this space are to write about the people, places and things that I care about. On any given day, that may range from what fun stuff I'm doing with my hubby and/or friends (Giants baseball! karaoke!) to what sweet concoction I've whipped up in the kitchen ("Hi, I'm Mary Beth and I'm a foodie.") to how I'm feeling after my workout (I'm big into health and fitness, so expect a lot of that type of material here).

But mostly, this space exists to give me an outlet for what I hope will be a new venture for me, and that's writing. I've been on the broadcasting side of communications for most of my life, but it wasn't until I decided this past year to go back to college and study online (We are... Penn State!) that I realized how much I was enjoying writing those essays that I used to dread my first time through school. That and the fact that I don't get to talk in my radio job nearly as much as I used to led me to think, "Maybe it's time I started expressing myself in one o' them there blog thingies all the kids are talking about."

So here I am, officially a blogger. I hope you'll check in every now and then. Maybe I'll be writing about you someday, and how happy I am to have you in my ever-changing life.

Happy birthday to me.
