Here Goes Nothing..

Well, after much anticipation I have FINALLY decided to start my blog!  Yes, in the past I have experimented with the blog space, but found it was very time consuming and back a year ago, time was of the essence for me.  Since then, I have met the most amazing man and moved in to a beautiful condo about a 3 minute bike ride from the shore line in Connecticut.  It truly is fascinating how much your life can change in one year.

Dating Evan has changed my life for the better in so many ways.  He is a wonderful man and a hard-working, remarkable police officer.  Living with a Police officer throws many challenges in your life.  You are constantly worried and with the late nights, overtime, and holiday schedules, it makes life a bit lonely at times.  I am fortunate enough to have a great support system of family and friends to keep me preoccupied when he is working and that’s why I have decided to pick up blogging during my down time.  I’m still trying to convince him to get a dog, time will tell 🙂

I designed Bete Lou to reflect my life as a diabetic and an avid crafter. Type One Diabetes  is a huge part of my every day life and many people frequently ask me what I eat and drink to manage it, so I figured I would share.  I am by all means NOT a professional cook but figuring out how to make yummy treats without all the carbs, calories and fat so I can eat them,  is fun and something I enjoy doing.  I will also showcase a lot of paperwork, invitations and cards I have designed for myself and for clients.  The goal will eventually start up a small side business and donate a portion of all profits to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  We’ll see how it goes.

So here goes nothing..the start of a new blog, a new life and new adventures!

Cheers! – J
