Hello and a Happy New Year to you, dear reader! Welcome to The Honestly Blog, my own slice of cyberspace.
I figure the crucial First Post (so crucial it necessitates capitalization) is the perfect time to explain what you have just gotten yourself into. Chief among my New Year’s resolutions was to reconnect with my first love, writing. I’ll still make time for my other loves: poorly planned adventures, amateur sports, and cheap wine among them.

So, if we’re all on the same page here, let’s begin…
