Take Two!

Well, as you can see it has taken me just about 7 months to begin my blog. My husband set this up for me in November and not until just a few days ago did I decide to become serious about it. We are currently in the process of selling our first home and moving to our second - a bittersweet moment for us. I have found myself trying to send multiple emails and pictures of our house hunt to relatives and finally decided it was time to begin my blog. I can now post updates here and keep everyone informed. I not only hope to keep people updated on our current move, but hope to make blogging a daily (or at least frequent) habit in order to keep everyone informed on all of our news.

I have a friend who lives in Ohio that I admire when it comes to blogging. Ever since learning of her sight, I can honestly say I don't think a week has passed when she hasn't posted at least one blog - I am pretty sure she posts something at least every couple of days. I have added her link to my favorites and typically check up on her at least once a week and love it. I don't feel as though I have missed out on a single moment of her life.

With our relatives living various distances from us, I decided this would be the best and easiest way to keep everyone informed. I was pretty sure grandparents would particularly like it - especially when the posts include pictures of the granddaughter. I also thought it would be a wonderful idea for me since I love writing down milestones and funny stories relating to my daughter. When she was first born I did very well writing daily about our experiences. I would say I continued that until she was about a year old. Then I started to just jot things down here and there on the calendar (hoping to one day go back and journal those calendar notes). I would say it has been about 3 months since I have written anything down and know it is something I will one day regret. So like I said, if I can just make it a habit, it will be a win-win for all. Family and friends will love keeping up with us and I will have a record of all our experiences.

So with all of that said, I sign off on my first official blog entry.

I love that you are starting this, I will definitely add it to my favorites to check in. I am counting on you to keep it up, just in case you needed some extra guilt motivation :)
Love you all,
Aunt Ann

Good for you!! I'm all in favor of taking advantage technology to bring families and friends closer. :) I'll be checking in and one day, I'll see if I can't follow your example! Big hugs!

The reason that so many nut jobs plan their masterpieces in late April is that is because April 20th is Adolf Hitler's birthday. Sad, but true.

Anyways, thanks for the link to my blog and keep up the writing!
