52 cropI have been a huge admirer of blogging for many years and finally decided to take the plunge.  Now anyone can be a “published” writer…not sure if that is a good thing or bad thing.   The title of this blog – Lone Star Lifer – describes me perfectly.  I have lived in Texas my entire (53 54 yrs) life and don’t see any changes coming in that area.  I have been trying for 4 years to get my act together and submit my application to the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, as my GGG Grandfather was in the Republic of Texas army, so I am a 5th gen Texan.  If you could ask my good friends to describe me, proud Texan would be mentioned frequently. Picture 069I married my husband (Big J) in 1992 and our son (Little J) came around in 1997.  I love to take pictures and started scrapbooking Little J’s life.  That lasted until he was 4 months old.  Now I have paper boxes full of pictures and no carnival-jscrapbooks.  I thought that maybe my blog could be his scrapbook.  I would like for Little J to know that there are many facets of me that he doesn’t get to see because I am his mom, and give him some insight into my heart and thoughts.

Thanks to all the bloggers who have gone before me.  I hope I can keep up with you!!

By the way, unless specifically noted, all pictures were taken by me and belong to me.  So don’t be using them for yourself without permission.

  1. You have a fantastic blog and a fantastic family. Your son is handsome. I would love to adopt a child but my hubby is n’t so keen on the idea. Maybe some day. I keep hoping and praying and believein believing g that all things work together for good! 🙂 I am thinking of moving my blog over to wordpress. Do you like wordpress? Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. I am so proud to claim you as my bonus sister….wish we could meet again soon for Mexican food and “remember whens”…..maybe a margarita next time?

  3. Hi,

    Found you through the comment you left on Lindsey Noble’s post, and I just had to check out your blog. I liked the things you said about marriage, and specifically about YOUR marriage. It was helpful for me to hear (read?) someone else say the things I’ve been thinking lately. If you don’t mind, I think I’ll hang around here a while. I’m Chrissy.

  4. Paula,

    Thank you for visiting my blog and recommending “Transforming The Difficult Child: The Nurtured Heart Approach”. After I read your comment, I hopped over to Amazon and ordered the book and workbook, which may be redundant. My daughter is only 3 1/2 years old and this may be a typical preschooler phase; however, after reading the reviews this book should be recommended reading for all parents. Again, thanks!
