Welcome to my new blog.  The name of this new blog will be Nanci Thomas...I have been wanting to make this change for sometime but it's finally a reality.  One of the biggest reasons for changing to Squarespace is that it offers more diversity for my photographs.  Squarespace offers beautiful templates and wonderful support as well as being user friendly which was a big draw for me.

I spent last year focusing on my photography by taking classes, making new photography friends and taking endless amounts of pictures.  With this new found knowledge, I feel changes coming and adventures waiting to be explored.  So what better way to share these new adventures than with a new name and blog.  I want this blog to reflect more of who I am and my diverse interests, a journal of sorts.  A journal of photographs that depict my life's journey.  My hope is that ones coming after me will know me a little better and maybe see a glimpse of themselves among the words and pictures and will bring a smile or two.

I struggled many hours and bugged my family to death about the new name but finally decided the point of my blog is to express myself and what better way than with my own name.  I do have an interesting background with my name.  In the south, lots of girls are given double names.  Nanci comes from my great grandmother and Thomas from my dad who was named after Nanci's husband, Thomas.  So far, someone from the last five generations has been given the name Thomas.  The most current is my youngest grandson who is nine months old.  I hope the tradition will continue.

Naturally I have been concerned that I may loose contact with special friends I have made while blogging under the name Created for a Journey.  My hope is that you will continue to follow and visit me.

I want you to know how much I appreciate each one of you and your sweet and caring comments  you have left for me post after post.  I value your friendship and I look forward to visiting you and seeing what plans you have for the new year 2016.  I wish each of you a very Happy New Year and that your path will be full of adventures and blessings.

Hugs and blessings,                                                                                                                                                                               Nanci
