A First Blog

Well, this is a new experiment for me.  I'm Callie.  Late 20something new attorney living in the Carolinas.  I've been a blog reader for a long time and now have decided to try it for myself.  I've spent a lot of time smiling over things I've read online and so I hope to create my own little bit of online space where perhaps I can record the things that have made me smile and also contribute to this exchange of ideas.  I'm not really sure what all I'll write about here.  Not my job (after all, I do want to keep it and my bar license--thank you very much NC Board of Law Examiners).  But all the rest of my life and the things that I enjoy: books I love, places I go, decorating, clothes, cooking, and the funny little antidotes that make me smile and that I don't want to forget.

And who is Mr. Mason?  He's my almost 5 year old, almost 17.5 lb dog (That's his goal weight accord to the vet.  He's actually almost 19 lbs now after the holidays and so many sweet potatoes, but he and I are both half glass full sort of people who are going to lose those pesky law school pounds).  I'm sure I'll bore you with pictures of him (you could say he's my stand-in-baby for now) but the important thing for you to know about him is that he is one special pup.  He's ready to snuggle at a moment's notice.  He's an excellent napper.  But, he's always ready to jump up and go do something fun--especially if that involves chasing squirrels.  He loves me.  He loves my Math Man (more about him later).  He'd love you too if you'd just so much as half-smile at him.  He loves life.  He's one happy dog. 

And this blog is meant to be about my life--and my attempt to live my life more like Mr. Mason does.
