I'm Back!!!!

It has been way too long since I have set down to blog. My last entry was July 4th, 2009. As I was searching franticly for a specific picture for Mili for her star week at school, I thought it may be on my blog and I could copy it from there. While looking for that picture I started seeing my girls’ whole life (up until July 2009) in pictures and writing…..WOW! It reminded me of why I started blogging in the first place……an outlet, to share with friends and family who lived miles away, and to record our wonderful days as a family. I want my children to see and read the things I thought about them at different stages of their lives (I may think differently when they are teenagers; maybe I will take another break at that point).

I am upset that I don’t have many pictures of Sadie and the cute things she did when she was little. It was very hard for me to manage, both girls, work part time and be a wife during that time in my life. I now feel things are a little easier and I may have a moment to reflect on life and the memories I want to record. I hope Sadie will forgive me for that later. (I always tease my mom about all the pictures she has of my older sister, Aimee….where are the pictures of me?).

Maybe this will also make me more accountable to take my camera with me. I forget it at home and get lazy because I have my iphone to snap a few.

What I don’t want to happen is for me to feel burdened with the blog and feel like I have to post something. For those of you who know me well, you know I am an ALL or NOTHING kind of girl. I feel like if I can’t do it to perfection then it is not worth doing. This has been good for many parts of my life but makes it difficult when I want to casually do something like blogging.

All this to say…..I am back for now and hope you ENJOY!
