I’m a blogger!  It’s official!  Which is a little funny considering my absolute WORST subject in school was English.  Of course, in my defense, it could be because I had an incredible crush on my 7th grade English teacher, and I spent way more time staring at him than I did listening to him!

But nonetheless, I’m a blogger! 

And I’m sure by now you have asked yourself why in the world I named my blog Blonde Fences.

Well, the blonde part should be obvious . . . hellooooo

But the fences part came from a conversation I was having with my friend, Carol Jones  (she’s a blogger too and writes a great blog about faith and family) and she told me that she thinks I’m such an adventurous person.

Which of course is totally true, and if you’ve ever driven through the streets of Atlanta with me, then you KNOW what she means!

Anyway, she said to me, “Cathy, you’re not like most people.  When something in life that is hard comes along, you don’t see a wall.  It’s not too big to climb over; it’s not too wide to go around.  You look at life like a big open field and you see the hard things in life as fences.  Instead of freaking out, you just climb through and keep on going.”

I like that.  Fences, not walls.

So there it is.  Blonde Fences.

I’m excited about sharing my life with you through this blog.

From my side of the fence, this is going to be one great adventure.
