Where do I begin? I choose today!

Those of you who know me know that I can be a little over-anxious about silly things--little things. Take this blog for example. I have been working on it since Christmas but never could decide where to start--and that has caused a 5 month road-block in my head. I mean, where do you begin when you are smack dab in the middle of your life? I've been with Ben for 12 years, and married for 7 years next month. We have Cajes who is 3 now, so it's not like starting a blog when a baby is born. Much like my friend Jessie, I am the archiver for our family and I found great inspiration in her blog. If there is an event going on and I am there--you can bet money I WILL have my camera there. I have documented so much for so long that there is not a rubbermaid tub big enough to contain my memories anymore. Our walls, fridge, boxes and my journal are completely full. So I guess moving into the cyber-world was inevitable! I too (like Jess), fear the house burning down or some sort of natural disaster, and not being able to grab everything I want to hang on to. So maybe this will be a way of permanently storing some of our most cherished moments, and some of our smallest memories. Those seem to be the ones I relish and find the most pleasure in. I have officially given up trying to find the perfect place-- or time-- or event-- to start this blog ~~so I choose today.~~




Throughout this blog I will attempt to catch the readers up on past moments and events in our life. This will no doubt take me a long time-- but I will attempt to share stories as they seem pertinent. Hopefully I can find the time to maintain this blog...geez--it took long enough to start.
