Well, hello blogging world.


I wonder how many times I've written a post like this. One where I say what a horrible blogger I am and how I am going to be better. Probably a few too many. My last post was in August of 2011. This is sad since this past year was such a great one, filled with the ever entertaining and adorable Stratton, a big move, and a few trips. I have been feeling some major guilt for not recording Stratton's first year very well. I've only wrote a few things in his baby book and the blogging stopped at his 4 month mark. This guilt has been nagging me for  quite a while but obviously I have not done much about it. I can't really remember too much already from when he was little. I know, I know- I'm a loser mom! Then I read this article...

It has inspired me to stop feeling guilty and just do better. So a big goal for me this year is to record! I'll admit that I do love the concept of a blog and I love reading other's blogs but I have always felt like I am not interesting or funny or a good enough writer to have a blog. But I've decided that I don't care and that I'm just going to blog for me and my family. SO, in case you didn't already know, I'm not really funny, I don't write beautifully and yes, I may be boring, but my family is cute and gosh darn it, I'm going to remember things!

Facebook has become a huge time waster for me and what is there to show for it? Nothing. Although I'm not ready to completely go off it (I know my own strength and it's minimal), I am committed to only checking it once a day and only spending 10 min on it. And spending the rest of the time I would spend on it on blogging! So here's to a new year and blogging up a storm!

Remember you helped me set up my blog! I thought your opening paragraph to 2013 was quite captivating and i can't wait to see more. Hope all is well in AZ!
