Let the Blogging Begin
Well, here it goes...my first blog entry. I must blame my sister-in-law, Joyce, for piquing my interest and getting me started with my own site. I guess you could say I've become a little addicted to checking hers everyday and as I started thinking about the whole idea and enjoying all of her entrys, it really made a lot of sense to me. I'm really into scrapbooking and have been pretty faithfully attending a once a month scrapbook group which meets at a local scrapbook store in our area. Although I love scrapbooking and will continue to make books recording the wonderful events in our family, this whole blog idea seemed like an even better approach to recording those everyday thoughts and events that go on from week to week. It seems like I've forgotten a lot of the sweet little things my children do and say because by the time I have a chance to scrapbook about it, it's long gone out of my memory and I've never really been great at journaling. I've tried writing some things down too, but all my little scribbles sometimes get lost in the big pile. I'm not planning to hang up my cropping scissors for good, but am hoping that this blog will be a wonderful addition to capturing all those little moments of life that seem to flutter by so quickly.
