I read a hilarious blog, My Real Life Was Backordered, and in her latest post, she linked to an article that is definitely worth reading:
I don't actually have much to say about it, since I think the article holds itself together quite well the way it resolves, and DeNae wrote quite a funny post about it already. So I'm good.
But it does make me look at my blog differently; yes, it looks like I'm a typical Mormon blogger woman. And if so? Okay! Yeah, I have pictures of my latest sewing projects, I do things "on the side" to help earn income for my family, and my profile is the embodiment of a stereotypical Mormon fairytale...perhaps because my life is a stereotypical Mormon fairytale! ;) winkwink
I'm honestly happy, and I honestly love life. My blog isn't very special in the grand scheme of things, but I enjoy it, and hopefully others do too. I can be branded with all the generically happy Mormons, even though I know I'm different in some ways. That's fine with me because guess what? Michael and I agree this Emily Matchar has stumbled upon what I believe is an eternal principle, stated by Tolstoy in Anna Karenina:
Russian mystic & novelist (1828 - 1910)
