WHY I LOVE BLOGGING

I started blogging because I thought it would be fun to keep an on-line journal. I always kept a diary in junior high through college and I thought this would be great only instead of writing about what boy I thought was cute or how great our basketball team played - I would write about our life now. I thought it would be a great way for our families to keep up with us. (and now I love that my mom has a blog so I can read what she is thinking and doing!)
I found it's a great way to keep up with my current friends as well as connect with old friends. I feel so close to my friend Leigh Ann who I LOVED so much in college but we haven't talked much since then and now I feel like I know her so much better!
Then I started reading blogs of people I don't know. First it was just friends of friends like Jill and Begina. They are my friend Julie's friends from college and I have just loved reading their blogs. And then I discovered Boomama and Big Mama and they made me laugh so hard and completely changed blogging for me.
And now I have discovered so many blogs of people I don't know but I feel like they have become friends. I hope one day I can meet the good majority of you in person! At least maybe in heaven! ha!
Today I came home and I got two pieces of mail from my sweet blog friends and it just made my day.
Jessica sent me this cute valentines card! She is one of my first bloggy friends and we live near each other so VERY soon we are going to have to meet for lunch! Hillary and I already have it planned!
I started reading a blog several months ago by Brittani. She just seems like the sweetest person and I love reading what she writes. She had asked me if she could send me some verses that her sister had written out when she went through infertility that meant so much to her. And today she sent them to me along with a sweet note.
Brittani - thank you and your sister so much! I will keep these on my desk or by my bed and read them every day to give me hope! Thanks for reaching out to me! I wish we could meet at Starbucks and have coffee and talk! :-)
I love reading about your children and your husbands and your homes and your struggles and joys from parenthood. I love getting cute craft ideas or decorating ideas or recipes. I love your funny stories! I love hearing about trips you go on! Thank you for reading my blog and leaving me comments! I enjoy your friendship so much!
