You know those people that start a blog and promote it heavily then post once or twice then never post again? This will be that blog. I will post randomly and sporadically.
All my posts from my old "wifey life" blog are still here. A lot of it makes me cringe because of the photos or wording, but it's fun to see how I've grown and evolved so I decided to keep it.
This new blog is called "MS in MS." It stands for Melody Sowden in Mississippi. MS are my (semi) new initials from getting married nearly seven years ago. And MS is the state I have lived in (also for seven years). Growing up, I desired to be married more than anything but wasn't sure if it was ever going to happen. And let's face it, Mississippi was probably the last place on earth I ever thought I'd live especially being a proud Northern girl from Lancaster, PA. But Isaiah 55:8 says, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord." I may not know what I am doing tomorrow or even later today but I am sure glad I serve a God who does.
So the initials "MS" represent me and the new person I've become and living in the new state I moved to seven years ago. My old "wifey life" blog just encompassed my title of just "wife." While I am still a wife, I am more than that. I embraced a new role two years ago when we welcomed our first son, Judah, into the world. Then six months ago, we welcomed our first daughter, Alexa, into our family. I am a Pennsylvanian, married to a Seattleite and we are raising two Mississippians.
I don't think this is a mom blog or cooking blog or hair blog or couponing blog or whatever blog. It is just a blog. It's a constant work in progress - just like me. I may post 10 times in one week or I may not see you again for three years. But I still want you to check back daily anxiously awaiting a new post. ;)
