Our Maple Tree

Keeping up with The Maples

Hello World!

| Leave a comment

This is how WordPress suggests introducing your blog. “Hello World!” reminds me of my first day in computational physics class. Our first assignment was to write a program that spelled out, “Hello World!”. And that was the easiest assignment we had all year. Note to self: never, ever, ever take another class like that again!

Anyways, so this is my very first blog. I am not a great writer (engineer, remember?). So please excuse any misspellings, incorrect grammar and just down right bad writing! 🙂

I wanted to start a blog mostly for friends and family to keep up with everything going on in mine and Randy’s lives. And to hopefully share my ideas, recipes and thoughts. But I welcome everyone! So welcome to our lives!

First, let me introduce myself… My name is Jama Maples. You pronounce my name Jay-ma, for anyone out there who wanted to know! 😉 Different I know. It is an old Appalachian name. I use to hate it, but I love it now!

I grew up in Boone, North Carolina with my family (mom, dad, big sister and little brother). I went to Appalachian State University (in Boone, NC – can you tell I like staying close to home?) and there I met my other half, Randy. The rest you can say is history or in our “Meet the Maples” page! 😉

I look forward to this new adventure of writing a blog and to meeting new people and to learning new things! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you stop by again. And just like in our home, our door is always open!
