My First Post....

Isn't everyone's first blog post titled, "My First Post"? alas, I am unoriginal.  I apologize. 
  I guess this is as good a post as any to reveal how insecure I am.  I'm not so sure about the title of my blog ("Heavy Laden").  
  For the first 23 years of my life I was taught that I couldn't make any decisions for myself. I was told what to like and what to think by my mother, because all of my thoughts, desires and decisions were "stupid".  And sadly, at 27 years old, I hear my mother saying "'Heavy Laden' is STUPID!", but since I do not talk to her anymore, I cannot ask her what to call my blog.
  For that, I am thankful.  But still insecure.  I hope you will all forgive me if my blog title offends you in someway....this entire blog will be a challenge to that voice in my head that tells me I can't express my thoughts and feelings and desires. 

I promise my next post will be far more cheery than this one :-)


  1. Hannah! I love it! Welcome to the world of blogging! I will subscribe to your posts and will be checking your blog and you! I THINK I will have the last week of February...duty free. (at least that is my employer's plan...if all works out with a new employee on her end). I would love to meet for coffee, etc. Give it some thought... :) Great blog...I love it and enjoyed the first post!

    1. I finally get to meet the famous Lindy? I'm there!

  2. Glad you are blogging :) AND Heavy Laden is no stupid. I think you will have fun with this blog and others will enjoy reading it. You have a way of putting personality into your writing. My style is a bit boring and to the point. With you, you add personality and your personality is great. People won't be able to help smiling, laughing or crying along with you and loving you like I do and I'm not just saying that because I'm your cousin either :) Looking forward to the next post.

  3. LOL no stupid... NOT stupid...kinda like your cousin LOL

  4. Awwwwwww, you're gonna make me cry! :'-) And I thought you said "no stupid" on purpose to be funny, not because you're a Mainer...

  5. I thought about it after and thought I shouldn't have said anything and you would have thought that. Sometimes my brain and fingers just don't communicate well :)

  6. Hannah,

    Nice job! You are so entertaining. You go girl!
