My Very First Guest Post

About 2 months ago, I got asked to write a guest post for the blog, Simple Marriage.  This blog has amazingly written articles about all things marriage and family-related.....and I immediately felt super intimidated.  

Because, well, it's ME.  I am not what you would call an expert on marriage.  Or motherhood.  Or on anything, really.  

I mean, do the readers of Simple Marriage want to hear about my endeavors to trick John into watching the Bachelor with me?  

Babe, look!  Sean clearly loves Jesus.  Let us support our brother in Christ.  
(He did not feel so inclined.)

Or would Simple Marriage readers want to re-live the time when AG decided that poop makes a fantastic art medium?

No one wants to re-live that, let's be honest.

I was stuck.  But, then, I realized that maybe I could mash-up motherhood and fashion, Glee-style.  (Well, except minus the awesome vocals and amazing dance moves).  And so, "5 Ways to Update Your Mom-iform" came to life.  

Y'all.  I love writing.  I really do.  But here's the thing:  it is VERY tough to put something out there, and be afraid that no one will like it.  SO, since this is my very first guest post, and since I'm hugely afraid that only 2 people will read it, would y'all go check it out?  And maybe even comment?  Like, tell me about YOUR mom-iform.  Or fill me in on simple ways you've updated your own look.

Or maybe, just possibly, even tweet or share my post on Facebook.  I mean, I'm not saying that I'd love you more if you did.  

But I'm not saying I wouldn't.
