seashells by the seashore is about working toward goals we set for ourselves. It’s about keeping motivated and overcoming the difficulties of reaching our goals. It’s about the day-to-day things we do to help us along.
Who I am:
I’ve struggled with that question for years! But seriously, my name is Shell. I love the beach and it has always been a dream of mine to live there. A few years ago, my husband and I took the step of buying a house at the beach, not to live in now, but so we are paying on it while we are both still employed. We want to have as much as possible paid on it before we retire.
I have a beautiful, loving beagle named Willow, and a sweet 8 month old kitten, named Pockets. Or sometimes we call him Trouble.
I started this blog when we set a time goal for moving to the beach full-time. There is so much involved in reaching that goal, and not just finances! I have wanted to work on improving my writing skills, so I thought I would start a blog to help with that.
I named the blog from a wooden plaque my sister gave me, that hangs by the front door of our beach house. It has a big seashell on it and it says ‘seashells by the seashore’. A play on my name, so I love it!
What I blog about:
I have the goal of living at the beach. I write about keeping motivated to reach that goal; about how finances impact the goal; about my struggles and triumphs to get there as fast as possible. And it’s about the bumps in the road that I meet.
I write about my goal to de-clutter, exercise, find more peace within myself, and generally anything that’s going to help me reach the beach, in good health, as soon as possible. I also write about ordinary days.
I’ve never blogged before, so to the readers coming here in my first few months, I ask for your patience. I also ask for your comments and any advice you would like to share with me and other readers.
