Why Blog!

This has been what I have been asking myself............for months obviously!!

I ran into a friend/fellow blogger and she said "Janice, you need to blog", so I asked the obvious question........."WHY"?  She simply explained that my kids will love to read this stuff some day, and that it's the only way that some friends can feel like they are up to date on my life.

Still not convinced.......I've held off...............until now......................

I'm thinking I will try to be a faithful blogger to the end of the year............and if it fulfills all my wildest dreams seems to be a good thing..............I will continue.

All that said, I'm not sure if there needs to be a consistent theme for my blogging.  You really don't need to see me and my friends eating and playing all the time, you really don't need to hear me whine and you really don't need any political I will work on my blogging posts content.

I don't like posts without pics - so I will post a pic of hubby and I as he celebrated the big 5-0! I know - he is a foxy 5-0 and he looks like a silver fox who robbed the cradle right? :)
Any suggestions (if anyone ever happens to check this blog again), please let me know.

I check the blog!!! :-) Glad to see you'll be back in action. If it helps any... My goal for blogging (and scrapping for that matter) is to not only just include pictures, but to include thoughts and feelings. And to be honest. Pictures are the same whether they are hidden away on a hard drive, on a blog, or in a book, but it's the words that go along with it that sometimes evoke memories the most. If I am having a challenge or struggle - I want to blog that, so that when God helps me overcome it, I remember!!!

You are a fabulous cook so any and all recipes would be appreciated. Your husband is the king of projects, so share. Scraping ideas, yes please!
And finally, why NOT? haha
I'm glad you're back.

I like reading your blog. I've learned new recipes, decorating ideas, party plans and generally been inspired by the fun times you enjoy with your friends and family.

So I think I NEED to see more of that! I hope you don't quit...but just make it easy on yourself. A blog is another place to connect with people in our lives...To me, that's the biggest value. So, keep it simple and easy on yourself.

I, for one, love hearing about your life! :)
