Well, hello.

Ahem.  Allow myself to introduce..my..self.  My name is Chris!  And I’m a blogger!  I got into blogging after spending months reading all the inspiration that is found in blogland.  I thought to myself, “Self, I can do this.  I might have something to offer, too!”  And so it began.

The title “Just a Girl” was easy for me.  I think many women take on many roles nowadays.  I’m a wife, a mom, a professional, a student, a friend, and on and on and on.  Essentially, however, I’m just a girl who loves to create, decorate, and inspire-ate.  This blog allows me to share all those things with you.  It’s mine.  Just for me.  And I like it that way.

Joining the land of bloggers is one of the best things I’ve ever done.  I’ve met more wonderful people than I could ever have imagined, and I’ve formed friendships I never thought possible.  Who knows?  Maybe you’re my next best friend!  Thanks for coming by!

Hi! I've kept coming here to learn more things from you. I consider myself new to blogging (10 months) and I'm always amazed to see bloggers with many followers. Yours has the most!!!!!! No wonder why... as I went browsing your older posts, I see you as a sweet soul, very friendly and no nonsense in every post. I'm glad to have found your site. You are an inspiration!

God bless you for blessing many hearts.

Okay, not to be creepy, but as you said in your "about me" section, I think I could be your new best friend! I love all of your posts. I've never read a blog that encompasses all that I love - bins and organizing and chalkboard walls and art supplies. I just started my blog yesterday and I'll post a link to your blog. Thanks for brightening my day! - Julie

Chris, I am so happy that I found your blog. Every time I check your site, I'm inspired to do something in my house. As an Army spouse, we rent our home. So, we aren't allowed to make cosmetic changes to it. Your blog has given me so many tips on how to change things up and make this house really look like my own. So, thanks for all of the great ideas!

Hi Chris my name is Alisa. I Looooove JAG. I have certain blogs I keep track of weekly and JAG is in the top three. I also noticed from your family photos that we have a couple of things in common for instance I live in MI also. I use to have a hard time saying this because of our winters but I also Looooooooove MI, and I work for the Great State of MI my offices are based across from the the State Police post where your husband's photo's were taken. Small world! I wish you, your family and JAG the best keep up the great work your post truly help me get through the week.
