On Starting Over...

So, here I am.  A new year, a new me, a new blog.  I have to admit - I was missing the bloggie world, but, life was upending itself over here.  I wanted to start blogging again but, I knew that I couldn't go back to my old URLs, that just wasn't who I was anymore...

I decided to start a new, fresh blog that belongs to who I am now - someone who I will let you grow to know as I am growing into myself.

You will see that I have given myself the pseudonym "Skipper" because I am in charge of my life now, no one is holding me under their thumb anymore.  I make the decisions and call the shots - just like any good skipper would do.  And, this time, I also needed a bit more anonymity. 

Why "This East Coast Life"?  Well, I live on the East Coast.  Not only that, but, I am finding that life on the East Coast is different than anywhere else.  We're not the South or the West Coast or the Deep South (which, in my opinion, is a totally different place than the South).  I guess you could narrow it down to the Mid-Atlantic but, my life is starting to expand back to New England as well - so, I am going to stick with the more encompassing East Coast title.

I guess that's about it for right now.  I am sure that, like before, I will come up with many random things to write about and show you.

Thanks for reading!
