The good, the bad, and the ugly

Well it's been a year since I've blogged and a lot has happened but really there is no time to try and play "catch up" so I'm just starting anew!  I've been busy people!! I've thought about writing many times but the task of it all was just too overwhelming that I would put it off again. I really REALLY want to keep this updated as a keepsake for my family and children but here lies the "bad"..... I'm an all or nothing kind of girl!  Hot or Cold, In or Out and there is no in between. I want every post to be perfect with well written words and cute pictures to go with each post and well that's just not possible in this season of my life. I don't do scrapbooking or family picture albums or anything that requires creativity (2 of my 3 kids have blank baby books for goodness sakes) but I want a place that my kids can look back and remember everything- good, bad and ugly!  I looked back at most of my posts and they were all the highlights of our life thus far..only the really great stuff and thought what a joke!  My kids will read this someday and think "That wasn't our life!" Don't get me wrong we have all these great times and many more but we also have some really ugly times too where we are learning as a family to grow and get through them together:-) so from now on this is my oath to will get the good, the great, the bad, and the ugly!  And I'll try to add some pics along the way too...

I will leave you with this adorable picture of Addy Cole on her 1/2 bday!


  1. Oh friend, you just stated my thoughts and heart on blogging and any form of memory keeping actually. This whole 3rd pregnancy, I swore that I would finish Elin's baby book... & here we are at 33 weeks and it is not done. I'm also all or nothing and usually more along the nothing lines, so I totally understand. You are a great mama, & those sweet babies of yours are going to remember the time and the words that you invested in them and planted in their hearts....with or without blog posts. Atleast that's what I am telling myself along the way!

    1. I can't believe your already 33 weeks! Did you find out what your having?!
