Maybe the best way to start a blog is to start with why I’m starting a blog. That might be answered with a little bit about me. First, I’m a stay at home dog mom and housewife — the best career choice out there! I actually really do love it, but unfortunately, I can’t do that forever–we’ve got bills to pay! The truth is, I’m currently unemployed. I recently graduated law school and was admitted to the state bar, but finding a job is tough with little to no experience in such a competitive job market. Meanwhile, I decided to start this blog since it’s something I’ve wanted to do for years but never got around to. So now that I have a little extra time on my hands, here we are.
I personally don’t actually read other blogs unless I come across them searching for something specific. So, I’ll start by saying that I don’t even know how to blog, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it, right? I wanted to create a space for myself to reflect on different aspects of my life: my home, my pups, fashion, fitness, and law. By no means do I consider myself a professional in any category (except I guess law by degree), but what do I have to lose?
My life isn’t glamorous like other bloggers’ lives seem to be in their pictures. My husband is an engineer and we’re currently living off one income in northern California–one of the most expensive parts of the country. My husband and I were married a year and a half ago and recently bought our first home. So maybe this blog will be a journey through the next chapters in my life.
Why Icing on the Pup Cake?
Because “icing on the cake” is a popular phrase about making something good even better, and because in life, dogs are the icing on the cake… and I’m obsessed with dogs.
