I love blogging. And I hope you love reading it. 🙂 Even as a child I kept a diary (actually, I had several), and I would write about the day’s events. I remember writing about holidays, especially Christmas when we would spend our mornings together opening gifts and then head off to my Nana’s house for lunch and family time with my mom’s parents and relatives. I remember writing about fun days I would spend with my friends growing up, riding our bikes for HOURS all around our neighborhoods. I wrote about boys. My first “boyfriend” was this boy named Sean. And when I say boyfriend, I just remember 1 time our moms drove us to hangout together (after school one day) at the mini-golf arcade that was at the end of my street. That arcade is long gone now (the Krispie Kreme in Hoover took it’s place many years ago). I even remember writing about the night our childhood pet, a sweet little Yorkie named Bitsy, got run over by a car…right in front of us. Yeah, that was a little traumatic. So the fact that I keep this blog comes as no surprise to me. I really do enjoy it. Sometimes I just go back and read through old posts. I compare my garden from 3 years ago to the one I have today. Boy, has that’s hobby grown! I like to look through big events, like celebrating all the weddings amongst our friends last year. And the best part of writing this blog is that for the past 2 years my sweet hubby and gotten a print version made for me. So not only do I have an online chronicle of our lives, but I have a copy that I can look through for years to come (cause you never know…maybe one day the internet will be old news). That’s hard to imagine, right?
I also enjoy reading others’ blogs. I follow my mother-in-law’s blog (Kendall Boggs Fine Arts and Crafts)…she’s kind-of a big deal 😉 I follow Young House Love for all their DIY and design-savy tricks. I follow a few others that my friends write, but I want to expand my reading list. So this is where I need your help! What are some of your favorite blogs you follow? I want your recommendations. They can be family blogs of someone we may know in common, or blogs about home-decor, or DIY. The sky’s the limit! If you like reading my blog then we might have some common interests, so tell me what’s on your blogging reading list 🙂 I would love to know! Ready, set, go!
