Clever Girl
Clever Girl

The moment you realize that even with the greatest of intentions there can still be failure. Failure is a strong word I admit, but I remember the day I wrote my first line on this blog.  I felt so naked, yet it was so exhilarating.  I had just quit my job, gotten hitched and was able to be a SAHM (stay at home mom) for the first time ever. Took me nearly a month to figure out that acronym.  I was feeling brave, ambitious and inspired. I coined up the name the Clever Penny (which I still find clever ha!) and imagined beautiful pictures, kick ass projects and amazing recipes with a dab of this and a dollop of that along the way.

Well folks, I can tell you from experience, life does really happen while you are too busy planning it.

Cheers to ONE year!! This little b20170725_105955-02eauty came into our life and through a giant, wonderful heavy wrench into my delicately planned life. And all those little plans fell ever so eloquently apart and it has changed us forever.

With that being said, I’ve decided to leave my original post. Maybe it will keep me motivated or at least remind me of the reason why this all started. But for the most part I just wanted to say, “I’m baaaack,” or have I just arrived?


Original Post

It happened! I took that leap of faith! I mean like pole vaulting, like way over the top flying through the air with butterflies in your stomach asking yourself, “what in the world did I just do?”  Ya, that kind of leap.  But, hey, I landed.  I may be a little wobbly, a little woozy even, but there is something inside me telling me everything is going to be alright.

So here I am bringing to you, “The Clever Penny”.  In more ways than one I hope to give you my words of wisdom, intellect, opinions, comments, heck even my babble, but most of all my clever ideas and goods. I don’t promise much…but for me at the end of the day I hope you can at least get a smile or a chuckle from visiting this new site, but mostly a clever idea that gets your motor running and your gears turning.

So leave a comment or an opinion, ask a question, challenge me.  I can’t wait to meet you!!
