Welcome to Inspired Life! I am a mother, but this is not a "Mommyblog" by any means. Yes, I blog about my children (two girls, 12 years apart) but I also write as inspiration strikes me. Current events, women's issues, randomness, sometimes silliness.
Why the name Inspired Life? When I decided to move my writing to an independent blog from another website, I was searching for a name. I looked back on a recent post I had written and that phrase kept coming back to me. It reminds me daily of who I am and what inspires me. That tends to disappear in the daily life of work responsibilities, household responsibilities, and wife and mother responsibilities. With the reminder, I don't let responsibilities to myself get lost along the way.

When do I give gifts?

Today's NaBloPoMo promt is interesting. "Do you give a gift when you buy it for someone or do you wait for a holiday/birthday?"

I buy gifts for my girls a lot. Nothing big, just little things I think they'd like. And yes, I give to them immediately. Starting in October or November, I'll start saving things for Christmas. Usually. Of course I give some, then wish I had saved them a little!
If it's close to birthday time, though, I save the gifts then as well. Not close to either? I give the gifts when I buy them (but not wrapped).
