I have planned on starting this blog for months, and like many other projects or goals it hasn’t happened. I have enjoyed reading blogs of friends and family and have been envious, but until now have lacked the ability to get it done. I think the concept is brilliant. It is a way to keep a journal and share with family and friends what is going on in our lives, all in one. I guess I have been a little hesitant to start one, because I have never been much of a writer, and now that I have been out of school for so long, I feel like it has gotten significantly worse. I also didn’t know what I would write about. But, ever since my friend Monica started her blog, I have thought about what I would write about that day if I did have a blog, and I am amazed at the daily experiences we have that I don’t want to forget. I have lived in New York for nearly 6 years now and I have very little record of my experiences here and it is so sad. So many things have happened here.. I got my first “grown-up” job. I met my husband. I had my first child and now I have two.. I have failed to record so many precious memories, so now more than ever I want to make sure we do it. No regrets just move forward, right? So, now you know my intention in attempting this blog. I want to look back and read about what we were feeling and what crazy experiences we had, and what funny things the boys did and said. It will be a record for our little family., but hopefully it will be something our friends and family can enjoy, especially since we are so far away from many of you.
