musings on life, love and laughter from my spoken heart to yours

A Bit About Me

This blog is dedicated to telling my story.

The name ‘My Spoken Heart’ came while discussing the idea of starting a blog with a friend. She had noted that I wear my heart on my sleeve and that I should share my view on things. We went through a handful of names, ‘conversations from the heart’, ‘when my heart says hmm’, ‘musings from the observant heart’, but My Spoken Heart stuck with me and after a brief google search it was decided.

So you now know about the name, maybe you should know a bit about me: My name is Andrea, I am in my early 40’s, I was married for 19 years straight out of high school, I’m a single mom (I have 4 kids my eldest is 24, my youngest is 15), I am a Noni (grandma). I have never met my father, and was orphaned at 15 when my mother died of cancer. But those are just things about me, not who ‘I am’ ~ I am a hopeless romantic. I am creative and artistic. Everything is music and color. I am an INFP. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I have learned many life lessons but the best one is: Although life can be very hard,  it can still be VERY good.

My hope is that by revealing how I manage to navigate the storms of life, I can inspire and bring hope to others. Because living, loving and laughing are the essentials of life and hopefully if we can focus on those three simple things, then everything else will fall into place.

From my spoken heart to yours,  Andrea xo

        • well I am a procrastinator… plus with the move I haven’t been online as much… put that together and OUCH! I am behind…

          I need to learn to just jump on these things I guess… I am torn though as i am not huge on accepting the awards but I think it is important to acknowledge when some-one sends an award your way because it’s their way of complimenting you… saying hey I like what you are doing and please keep doing it!

  31. *gentle smile* …tis my turn … and honor …for sending you an award.

    Andrea, in the short time we have known one another, I have come to find that you are not just an incredible blogger, who has much wisdom, warmth, wit, and humor … but with you I have found a most incredible friendship.

    So .. my initial thought was to give you this award (Blogger of the Year Award) for the incredible blogs you post … but I want to tag it with love and friendship. Thank you for all the support you have shown me .. for all the caring. Thank you.
