a book...a book...

I cannot begin to explain what it is like to hold in my hands 5 years of my writing and pictures.  I have no delusions that I am a great or even good writer or photographer...I read so many people who write exactly what I want to say and write it much better than I ever could.  I look at blogs that have the most amazing photographs, photographs that need no words.  BUT, this is me...this is my life, my thoughts...I write the way I speak, rambling and at times nonsensical, and I'm OK with that.  I'm more than OK with that...I am thrilled beyond belief to be holding this book in my hands, it makes me smile and cry all at the same time.  It brings me back to moments in time that would be lost without this blog and without my writing.  I can hold the last five years in my hands...it is amazing!

That looks so neat-- what an awesome idea to have it all in a book to keep "forever"

YEAH! Five years is amazing and what an incredible way to someday be able to share your life with your kids. Or for them to be able to look back and get to know their mom even better! My mom printed my blog for me and it was the best gift in the world. I know it wasn't easy to put together so I am so glad that you are happy with the result.
