I haven't blogged in QUITE a while, and I don't really have an excuse for it. Well, yes I do...

When I created B.Wanders, I struggled with finding the correct way to portray myself. I have so many interests, hobbies and passions and I've always had a hard time figuring out exactly what I should be doing with my blog and really, my life too. Initially, I thought to myself, "I can't just blog about anything! I need to be organized and I need to try to be a blogger that fits into a certain category, so that I can be really be successful with this." I wanted to fit into the perfect "beauty guru" or "fashion guru" or "blogger" world... but let's be real. Why am I having a hard time showing who I am and what I love? I think the answer is that I have been indecisive my whole life. I have continuously told myself that once I nail down exactly what I want to do, I will dive head-first into it and never look back, while simultaneously blogging about it. Well, that's why I ended up flailing around like an idiot, showing you half-assed glimpses into my life. That ends now. I'm not going to worry about being a certain person on the internet. I'm going to be myself, because life is too short to just wait around for the right opportunity or the right idea.

I chose the name B.Wanders initially because it sounded neat, and it was a play on words. My name is Brooke, hence the 'B'. I got 'Wanders' from the word Wanderlust, which means to have "a strong desire to travel." How fitting, since I am literally a professional traveler. But now when I look at B.Wanders, I think it really describes Me, stumbling around through life, with all of my passions, imperfections, joys, sorrows and everything else that defines who I am, right?

Glass of wine in hand... Here goes nothing!

My name is Brooke. I'm a flight attendant; no, my life is not glamorous and always full of adventure, but it's interesting all the same. I live in DC, and it is spectacular, but can also be a little lonely. I am a designer and an artist. I have the best family in the world. My boyfriend is wonderful and the best roommate I've ever had. I think my life is pretty great and I'm excited to share it with you, whoever you are... 

It took half a bottle of wine to give me the gumption to sit down and right this.
Note to self:
*** Brooke: you must proofread this in the morning.
