One word. CHEESEY.
It is completely clear to me now. Why I lost the elevator pitch competition. Check out these horrid pictures! I have been known to be overly exuberant, but this just looks ridiculous.
This group shot below is remotely better. But still, way over the top. Next to me in the purple is the talented artist Sarah of Sarah Jane Studios, the deserving winner.
t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
