My first "real" blog

      So this is my first "real" blog. I had a xanga once. In college. But I wasn't very good at posting often. I didn't feel like I had a whole lot to say. Now, I'm not saying that I've changed into this impressive wordsmith all of a sudden, but I do find that I'd like an outlet to share my creativity, musings and discoveries. I've named my blog, "The Pleasantest Things" after that poem by Robert Louis Stevenson about the swing, "How do you like to go up in a swing, Up in the air so blue? Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing, Ever a child can do!" As a child, my favorite piece of playground equipment was the swing, and this was my favorite poem. 
     So my blog will be about my life's "Pleasantest Things", which may include (but is not limited to) natural parenting, reading, crafts, cloth diapers, sewing, graphic design, music, making things, and anything else I may take an interest in. So for those of you who are interested, welcome to my life!
