The reason I started blogging was pretty simple. Two reasons actually. 1) To keep our families updated on our children. 2) To document our kids growing up so we can all look back on it someday. Since I didn't do so hot at baby books and scrap booking I thought maybe I would keep up a blog a little better. Well what do you know, it worked. :)
What I didn't know would happen when I began blogging was that I would meet some really great women. Women that are a lot like me. Other moms, wives, daughters, friends...just girls trying to live life and blog about it. It's weird to call someone I have never met in person a friend but I find myself doing it a lot now. And weird or not, I think it's pretty awesome.
Yesterday I got to meet one of my bloggy friends. I actually got to know her through a relatives blog so although I have never met her before she wasn't really a "stranger" I guess. Or maybe that still counts, I don't know. Either way it was cool. She has a daughter almost the exact same age as Alexa and twins (boy/girl) who are just a little younger than Braden....a match made in heaven? I think so! We already talked about getting together again soon so the kids can play and us mommies can get some much needed adult time too. :)
Another wonderful mommy blogger I have got to know is Bethany at Crazy Days...Sleepless Nights. She is fabulous...one of those people that only has wonderful things to say and can always make you feel good about whatever is going on. She's great and apparently she thinks I'm okay too because she gave me an award!
