Some people don't understand blogging.
They don't understand why I share so much about our family... on the internet... for anyone to read.
Honestly, when I started this blog (back in 2007) I didn't really think anyone that I didn't know would be reading it.
I started this blog as a way to record our family memories... and like my header says... to help me remember all the little things that make me smile.
It has turned into so much more.
It's still mainly just a way for me to record our family memories. You know about my blog books and how much we all love them. That will always be my biggest reason for blogging.
But it's also a great way to keep in touch with friends and family... to share with them what is going on in our lives here.
But blogging has also given me some amazing friends. Friends that I never would have met otherwise.
I have at least 3 friends now (who I really consider real friends!) that we exchange Christmas cards with. I may have never met any of these people in real life, but I have faith that we will meet someday! And oh, how much fun we will have then! I have gotten some of the sweetest and most encouraging emails and comments from blog readers. This move has been tough on me. YOU have all helped to make it a little bit easier. You'll never know how much your sweet comments and emails mean to me.
One of those sweet bloggy friends sent me this the other day...
Just a super sweet little card full of kind and encouraging words... a perfect little polka dot mug (coffee tastes even better when it's in a sweet polka dot mug. True story.)... and a happy little wish for sunshine and a happy heart.
Totally made my day and made my heart happy.
I loved it. So much.
And it made me want to do sweet, unexpected things like this for other people.
Everyone loves a fun surprise.
Thank you so much, Jenn. You are truly the sweetest.
