I started this blog because I thought it would be a fun, creative way to document our lives with our 2 little ones. I am able to post pictures and keep an ongoing journal of the daily happenings. But, this blog is not the whole picture. Our life is full and happy, but far from perfect. My daily routine often consists of whining children (and sometimes adults), diffusing a temper tantrum, constant messes and what seems like mountains of laundry. I do not like to cook and often don't, and most of the time I feel guilty about it (something I need to work on). Sometimes, I'm painfully shy and uncomfortable in social situations and until recently wouldn't order anything from the deli counter. However, I have happy, well-adjusted and healthy children who make my days full and worth waking up every morning. They are kind-hearted, silly, smart kids who constantly make us laugh. I have a husband who laughs with me, stays grounded when I go a little astray and loves me unconditionally, even in spite of my bad cooking.
I then started thinking about myself and how I perceive others through their blogs: "Look how beautiful her house is! What a great wardrobe she has! I wish my pictures would look like that!" I enjoy going through my list of blogs everyday, but, I must admit, sometimes I have a bit of blogger's envy....
