It's Been A Year

Has it really been a year since I last blogged?  I'm not even sure I remember how to publish a post!

Lately, I have been feeling guilty about not documenting our memories.  My husband and dad often ask me when I'm going to start blogging again.  My dad lives eight hours away and I think he feels more connected to us when he can read a little something every now and then.

There are a few reasons that I haven't kept up on here.  I sometimes just feel too busy and too tired to sit down at the computer at the end of the day.  I also worry some about what people really think and I wonder who is reading.  Isn't that silly?!  I'm sure I don't need to worry anymore about that last one!

However, I do miss being able to look back over the years and remember exactly what was going on during that time because I had taken the time to blog about it.  The days are flying by and I like using this space as a journal.  I've said it many times before that writing doesn't come easily to me.  I think I'm just going to put less pressure on myself, blog when I can, and use this space for preserving things I want to remember.  We'll see  how it goes.


Brady was at a friend's birthday party all afternoon and came home just quick enough this evening to change his clothes and he was off to the first home football game of the year.  Without us.  I wanted to get a picture of him before he left but it all happened so fast I didn't get a chance.  I took this picture last week of Brady and our neighbor's dog...I guess it'll do!

Yay!!! So excited to see a post! I also hope to get back at it soon!! Tonight my hubby and kids went to our first high school was an away game!! I loved your nice little party you had on IG!! I've decided it's worth preserving the memories on the blog -- Megan being a senior makes me realize how quick it goes and you can't get it back!!

A year??!! Welcome back! I can certainly relate to all the reasons you listed for staying away and for coming back. I don't scrapbook anymore, so my blog has become my journal of our memories and as many times that I've wanted to let it go, I'm so glad I kept going. And for the family that lives away, it is such a great way to connect. I'm glad you are back!

Right there with you! My blog was always a "scrapbook" not really purposed for anything else, and I miss it. I love looking back over the times I did document, and I wish that I was on the ball more now. I think my problem is that I now work online in the evening and so it is like I am always on the computer working, so I hate to be on here for anything else.

I love this photo!
I am sure we've all felt exactly like you are feeling about blogging. I still do some days. I feel like it's time to shut mine down, but like Megan said, it's like my scrapbook. SO, I keep on going, even though I post so much less than I ever have before. I always love reading here, so I'll always be around when you post!
