When I started this blog in August of 2007 my original purpose was to chronicle our life in Idaho so our friends and family could keep up with our adventures.
I never expected blogging to turn into a place where I was encouraged, inspired, and challenged to be a better wife, mother, woman, and friend.
I never expected blogging to be a place where I developed meaningful friendships - some still internet based and some where we have met in real life.
Over time I have found that I have become, with no better way to say it, insecure about my blog. It will take me hours or even days to complete a blog post (hence not posting for days/weeks at a time). I get "hung up" on making sure everything sounds right or is phrased appropriately. I worry because I am not witty, I don't always see deeper meaning in the little things, and I am not an eloquent writer. Since I was so caught up in those worries, I have lost the purpose for this blog.
I am refocused on the original purpose of this blog: to journal and record our life in Idaho. I am no longer going to worry about trying to present the perfect post - what you see is what you get and hopefully you enjoy reading about our adventures and our life in Idaho.
