twenty things to remember. part one.

let's be honest.
this blog has seen better days.
it puts a little pain in my heart.
this blog has been the receiver of countless memories & lessons & pictures & mistakes for the last 5 years.
and while having two kids and a shop and a husband and a home keeps me from writing like i used to,
i don't want to give it up.
this is where my memories are stored. where i write it all down.
where the pictures that i don't ever want to lose (no matter how cell phoney they are!) get saved.
and every year, scott puts it all into a book for me.

so regardless if some of these pictures are 2 months old,
or regardless if only 2 people read this post (or any post!),
regardless if i have spelling errors or incorrect grammar,
or if no one leaves a comment...
i'm gonna blog. for me. for my family. for my kids.

so let's take a trip down memory lane for the next two posts and remember 20 things that i don't want to forget......

there's a new treehouse at my in laws' house!
miles is in heaven.

you will never be able to stop me from pulling over and taking a sunset picture.
sunsets are good for my soul.

i took my own wall's advice.
glad i did.

this boy was very happy about his blazer.
buttoned it all on his own.

my favorite.

all things bright. all things calm.
[i need this picture on a canvas.]

scooter was so sweet.
broke into my pinterest DIY board and made this sign for me for Christmas.
i love it so much.

walked out of my room to them reading like this.
i want to remember moments like that forever.

my father-in-law.
raised two boys.
and then two grandsons.
and then cammie jane was born.
and i think he is quite smitten with her, if i do say so myself.

just catching air on a saturday afternoon.

10 more memories coming up tomorrow......


  1. Such a good reminder on keeping the blog going!! Thank you. I am a full year behind and my goal is to be caught up by the end of next month. Even if only 2 people read it..because as you said I don't want to forget.
