Why blog?

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin is definitely up there on my top 10 book list of all time. My favorite take-away quote is β€œThe days are long, but the years are short.” This reminder was my motivation to start blogging.

The days can be VERY long sometimes; it can be easy to get bogged down in the baby stage of life with sleep deprivation, diapers, reading ahead to the next stage of parenting books, etc. But oh goodness, these years are going to fly by just like this first year has with Caroline. I want this blog to be a way for our little family to chronicle our adventures, milestones, successes & lessons learned, traditions, and daily life. Thanks for joining us as we journey though life!

Connecting with others through the world of blogging has been such a wonderful resource to me as a wife and mother. Whether I need a good laugh, gentle reminder, holiday craft, or a new recipe to try, I have found all of these through fellow bloggers. I am excited to share thoughts and ideas in this space and I hope you will be able to make some connections too.
