Confessions of a voyeur...

I confess. I am a voyeur. Not a perverted, peeping-tom-in-a-tree, binoculars aimed at the neighbors window type but the look at your blogs and occasionally post comments type. So what brought on my blogging fate? Was it my guilt? No. The ease of creating photobooks using my posts? Maybe. But the real, true blue reason? The past few weeks I've been thinking in "BLOG". Yup. That's right. You see, I used to dream in Spanish. But now I find myself taking the occasional great photo or I overhear my kids say something hilarious and my gears start turning. I've made up titles for posts that don't even exist! Who's to blame? It's all of you. Yes, you... who are reading this right now. It's all of you wonderful bloggers who's lives I drift in and out of undetected. It's you amazing people that inspire me to be a better wife, mom, woman. (You know who you are!) So I'm taking the plunge. Who knows? It could be fun. Or, I could be longing for my Spanish dreams where all I had to do was try to translate them......

YAY welcome to the wonderful world of blogging.

i hope by the time i finish typing this is will have been your first comment! weeeee!!

i have been blogging for going on two years. it started as a way to journal and has become WAY more than i ever expected. moving here was one of the hardest things i have ever gone through. i have not connected with ANYONE in this town, this place that often fels like an island or another planet to me. i have lived here for TWO years and STILL don't have a calling. TWO years. yep the people here are weird!! don't they know a cute fun girl when they see one?!

ANYWAY blogging opened a whole new world to me. i was able to connect with women like ME; LDS stay at home moms just wanting to create a good life for their families. it sounds silly, but blogging saved me from wanting to crawl under a rock.

dreaming in blog is a good thing. i am so glad have archives of all of the fun adventures our family has been on and pictures and slide shows and video montages that hold all of our memories. so. much. fun.

ALSO since i am not a scrapper booker (who has time?) i am going to download posts to an awesome site that binds them into books!! BOOKS!! how cool is that?! check it out at blurb.com

WELCOME!! Follow me...this is going to be F-U-N!! AND i will be your #1 commenter...just you wait and see!! so blog!

ps i have some REALLY great pics of your kiddos from that day the in the park. i will send them over to ya!
