One Final Introduction

16 Mar

Just when you thought you’d gone through all of the introductions…

My name is Dina Saweriss, and I have the privilege of being the Friday Blogger for This Passing Life! Being a Friday blogger has its potential ups and downs…on the upside, everyone looks forward to Fridays, so perhaps by association you’ll also forward to my entry! On the down side, as the final entry each week, I feel a tiiiiny bit pressured to sign off the week with a particularly humorous, insightful or helpful post. I make no promises, but let’s see how I do!

So, a little about me.  I am 34 years old (yes, that definitely makes me the YOUNGEST member on this blogging team!). I’m married to Shady Saweriss who I personally believe I don’t deserve, and who I thank God for from the bottom of my heart. We are members of the Grace Chapel family and are incredibly grateful for this body of Christ to which we belong!

Six months ago we welcomed beautiful baby Amanda into our home, and nothing has been the same ever since. I have to admit that one of the best parts of having Amanda was that I was no longer pregnant! I was not a graceful pregnant, and I made sure everyone knew how uncomfortable I was!!! In fact I distinctly remember Georgie calling me after Amanda was born and congratulating me on no longer being pregnant! More stories on that in the future…

Having Amanda has been one of the most life changing experiences! Since her arrival, we smile SOOOO much, yawn continuously, and have mastered the art of getting out of the house in fifty minutes flat (according to Serge we are still rookies!). I can’t wait to share some of the stories of being a new mom…even though some of them won’t make me look as put together and under control as I would like!

I’ve always wants to blog! Sometimes as I go through various situations I find myself blogging in my mind (I know, that’s not normal) and have a pages full of blogging ideas that have never come alive. You know how people keep a to do list….well for the longest time now, “blog” has been on my to do list! So Maja, thank you for giving me an opportunity to live out one of my life goals!!!

Aside from writing, I love to spend time with my husband and daughter. We love to be with our family and friends, try new restaurants, go for walks, and I absolutely love to knit. For my birthday, I would reeeeally like a sewing machine, but to be honest I have no clue what I would do with it, especially considering I don’t know how to sew! I also love to worship on the guitar!

I am so looking forward to reading the variety of posts that will come from this dynamic group of women. How exciting to not only read the blog, but be a part of contributing to it. I hope to learn from their wisdom, pick up lots of cooking tips along the way, and perhaps learn a few things about the Leafs….Did I mention that I have zero interest in watching sports? I actually don’t have a competitive bone in my body (Sorry Amy, but wouldn’t it be better if everyone just played for fun??)

So, happy weekend to all…only two more days till Sunday, the best day of the week!
