The story of i married superman

I've actually been blogging {privately for friends and family} for quite some time now.  I wanted to start a public blog to get all of my ideas into one place.  {And let's be real here.  I also wanted to become famous and get at least a trillion followers and be known in blog land as the "cool" person.}

But I had a few road blocks.

First, I had nothing to blog about that wasn't already being blogged about.  Blast!  Second, I didn't want it to take away from time spent with my family.  Third, I didn't want to be made fun of.  Because lets face it, I don't know what I'm doing or how to do it and the thought of putting "me" out there for anyone to see and laugh at or condemn my opinions is a bit daunting.  And fourth, I wasn't cool enough. Shoot! I've never really felt like I was really amazing at anything.  Except for eating.   {I am a really good eater.}

So years passed. 

And one day, I came across some of my husbands "superman" memorabilia.  When he was little, he idolized superman. Wait. Who am I kidding?  He still loves superman. I've always affectionately thought of my husband as being very "superman-like" because once I met him, my life changed so much.  I felt like he helped {and continues to help} me become the kind of person that I want to be.  And so it came to me: my husband is really awesome. Why couldn't I blog about my life with him.  I am good at my life with him.  I am happy in my life with him.

So imarriedsuperman was born.

And then more years passed.  Because I was scared.  I still hadn't figured out exactly what to blog about and I feared being condemned by others.  I felt that in order to blog, you had to throw your opinion out there and then people who agree leave a comment and people who disagree leave mean comments. And I still hadn't figured out where to find the time to blog and keep my family happy and safe. {You know all the stories about weirdos who steal pictures etc.}

Then one night, I realized that I have so many random thoughts in my head and so many recipes and projects that I work on that I just really need in one place.  I need to get them out of my head and record them and move on.  And who even cares?  It was like a little voice just said, "Get over yourself, Bethany, and go for it."

So here I sit.  Coming to the realization that this blog is going to just be about what I do every day.  It's just my life.  No schedules, no followers, no anything but my thoughts and a few other randomness tidbits along the way.  It doesn't have to take time away from my family because it's simply my life, written down.  It doesn't have to be perfect because it's just for me {and superman, of course.}

So happy blogging and here we go!

  1. Hi Bethany
    I came across your (new) blog via project run and play. I clicked on your thumbnail because I loved the idea of the Whistler's Mother and I thought your outfit was simply elegant.
    Then I read your first 2 entries. I'm not sure I would equate my husband with Superman (although he does like his superheros) but I know what you mean about finding someone that sees your potential and who encourages me to be what I am afraid of because he truly believes I can be that.
    It was good to be reminded of how lucky I am to have this man in my life.
    I love the concept of your blog and look forward to reading more of your entries.
