Welcome to The Blue Eyed Dove!

After spending numerous hours blog hopping I finally thought, “I should start a blog of my own.” And here we are! I studied journalism in college, but decided to pursue a career path that steered me away from writing. Plus, as you are probably aware the news can be pretty negative, and that doesn’t really fit my personality.  I was always more of what they called a “fluff” writer in the news biz anyways. What better place to write about “fluff” topics than a blog?!

As most new bloggers I’m still learning as I go, and am not really 100% sure about what I will be blogging about. But, I’m up for the challenge and I hope you will follow along with me! I can tell you I have a passion for being creative. My free time is spent brainstorming new ways to express my creativity whether it’s through crafting, shopping, decorating or party planning. This blog will help showcase some of my ideas.

So here we go!

And since it is Valentine’s Day (one of my favorite holidays) it seems fitting to show you a picture of my Valentine’s Day nails. I don’t usually have nail art, but I’m loving my gold hearts! Who doesn’t love hearts?!

Have a great weekend! Be sure to stop back on Monday for my Home Tour!
