Why BlOg?

A reason to start out with: I believe keeping a history or some form of documentation of your life is SO important!  I don't know why it is so important to me... In fact, I used to hate keeping a journal.  My first entry in one of my journals when I was young was, "The only reason why I have a journal is so that my kids know what I was like when I was little."  True fact.  This very entry displayed my near hatred of writing about my life.  I know this sounds sad, and to answer any questions, my childhood was great, so don't worry! (: 

  Goodbye journals, Hello blog!

Back to my reason for blogging.  Recently, for a few years now, I have had a goal to keep a journal and write in it every day.  Although this was a success, I realized after a few years it started to get a wee bit boring- I began to write simply to fulfill my goal.  Long story short- I made a new goal; to blog.  Blogging will be my new and improved journal.  This way, hopefully it will be more interesting because I am writing to an audience and get to include pictures which results in getting a little more creativity than just writing on a lined piece of paper each day.  I hope that as time goes by people will enjoy reading, be inspired, and discover interesting, new facts or ideas that they can incorporate into their own lives!  I'm excited to keep this new documentation of my life with Josh and desire to keep my goal of recording my life on this blog!
