Blog Inspiration

My husband recently started a blog to re-tell the events surrounding his stroke and battle with testicular cancer (benspeece.blogspot.com). It has been amazing and inspiring to me for several reasons. First of all, he has become a new man. I think that sharing his story has been a powerful experience for him, and therefore is continuing to drive him down rehab road which is a long and arduous trip. But in a different way it has also been inspiring for me because it has pushed me to delve into the blogosphere where I think I might have found a creative outlet for my seldom satiated yearn for beauty and design.

So, I can't promise that this will be anything too new or fabulous, and as the name implies, I am not a professional designer. But I do hope to share some of those beautiful and inspiring elements that keep me up at night re-designing imaginary rooms, and transforming in my mind our doggie-destroyed back yard into a pooch's paradise.

Since this is my very first post, I will indulge myself and share a few pictures of our family.

  1. Hi, Liza,
    You don't know me. My children are the same age as Ben and Brad. It's good to see Ben's blog and to read yours, as well. I've been praying for you all through this journey.
