Why: Just Because



Have some of you been wondering why I haven't posted pics lately? Well let me tell you why. A couple of months ago my computer crashed & had to be overhauled. I'm unsure what was even done but I do know that when my computer came back I had NOTHING left on my desktop. We, mainly Braydan, has slowly been uploading my software programs back onto my computer but we, meaning Braydan, has failed to get my camera program on. I know, I know, you're all thinking, "Well why can't you do it?" I've actually been thinking that myself lately & I really don't know why I haven't just done it. I'm certain I could figure it out. It's probably a matter of sticking in the disc & clicking next, next, next, finish or something ridiculous like that. I am sick of posting without pics so if I get time today I WILL DO IT!!! If not, I'll do it tomorrow.



Last night Alivia was nestled in her usual spot for bedtime, right between Braydan & I, when she turned towards me, grabbed either side of my face & whispered, "Mom, essimos!" Then she proceeded to give me Eskimo kisses. That was it. Then she was sound to sleep, dreaming of all those things little princesses dream of. I just love her!



I love when I am able to glimpse something that makes my face turn up into a giant smile.

Today we went & climbed the sand hills in search of "treasure" & Alivia climbed up the little hill all by herself, threw her hands in the air, & shouted, "Mom, I did it!" That made me smile.

Today Addison was jumping on the trampoline when I looked over to see her practicing her awesome toe jumps. That made me smile.

Today Ainsley led her little sisters in a cheer on the front lawn while I watched from the bench on the front porch. That made me smile.

I love my little girls & the simple things they do to make me smile every day.



I have been thinking about this question quite frequently lately as I seem to have no time, let me rephrase that, as I seem to make no time to blog. Let's weigh my thoughts, shall we?

First, I really love blogging.
Second, I love writing, especially about the things that matter to me.
Third, I love hearing from all my awesome family members & friends who leave comments for me.
Fourth, I love remembering the little things that I know I would've forgotten because I actually blogged them.
Fifth, I love keeping in touch with all of you. I feel like I still know you & if I were to see you it would be just like "old times".
Sixth, I love being able to share my frustrations & triumphs with people. I guess it makes me feel a little less CRAZY than I know I really am.
Seventh, I love laughing at things I have written in the past. It makes me smile.
Eighth, I love when Brayd comes home from work & says, "I read your post today."
Ninth, I love when Danyette calls or texts me to let me know she has posted so I can check it out.
Tenth, I love focusing my energy & thoughts on the stuff that is worth remembering in order to blog it. It makes those rough times disappear.

So what is to come of my blog? I guess ALOT more posts, hopefully!!!
