Here goes...

This blogging thing scares me. A lot.

I've been thinking about starting a blog for about three months now and it has just not happened. I tend to move the tasks that I think are most difficult to the end of my to-do list and they stay there for a really long time.  For some reason starting a blog was one of those super difficult tasks that I was just not ready to do.

But today when I received an email from my friend Heidi saying that she started a blog (which came out of nowhere, when I've been all talk for three months!), I decided today was the day. So I logged in here and just started to write. I thought I'd write about my hesitation before telling you the real reason I'm here, in the hopes that anyone who reads this would like to know a little about the personality behind this blog before they look at some invitations.

But before moving on to posts about said invitations, I'll introduce myself. My name is Jenny and I'm the face of Vivian Elle Invitations. Here is what I look like:

(I should mention that I don't have a lot of options for a picture of myself because I rarely take pictures of just me. This is why you're looking at a picture of me at The Melting Pot from my last birthday. And I cannot remember what was on that fork, but I assure you it was delicious.)

And though my name is not Vivian Elle, I have a good reason for making that the name of my invitation business. Here she is:

This is my little niece, Vivian Elle. I call her Viv. She is precious and completely worthy of having a business named after her. Don't you just want to squeeze those cheeks?!

Well, that's all for now. More posts to follow. I promise they will be about invitations.

Welcome to my blog. Turns out it isn't so scary after all. :)
