March 3, 2014
It's been almost 7 years since I wrote my very first blog post. At that time it was a great way for me to share photos with my family and journal about my life. Since then I have faithfully (better some years than others) been documenting my life through photos and words. In 2010 I attempted my very first blog book and got about half way through the year before putting it down. I became frustrated with the amount of time it was taking me to complete each spread. Since then I have been following Becky Higgins and her Project Life approach to scrapbooking. I love her motto which says, "Cultivate a Good life and Record it." She is right on the money. I am so grateful that I have written things down over the years. Blogging has been fun and a great way to get my thoughts down but I have repeatedly asked myself this question, "Who am I blogging for anyways?" The answer to this question is MY KIDS. My kids have loved looking at the small family albums that I have put together every year. They are just full of the best photos of the year. There is no journaling and they are really simple...but they love them. They cherish them. Seeing that makes me realize how much more important it is for me to get my blog put into a book for good. No more excuses. No more wasting time just putting it on the internet. So, for 2014 I have made it a goal to do my blog book spreads before posting anything to my blog for the new 2014 posts all while trying to catch up on prior years. I have a plan and I am going to stick to it. I know it will all be worth it. So, follow me as I post my completed spreads and work towards getting all caught up in DOCUMENTING MY LIFE!
