At the end of the year I always like to reflect on what has happened throughout the year, what we've done as a family, and places we've gone. In the past I've just opened up my picture files on my computer and revisited everything month by month, which kind of gives me an overview or highlights of the year. This year I wasn't able to do that as the restoration company has our computer and all of my pictures are tied up without me being able to access them....what to do?
I turned to my blog. And I was ever so grateful that I had kept a record of at least some of the things that we have done as a family over the past year. It gave me a new appreciation for my blog and left me with a desire to be more faithful in recording things in this way.
As much as I love to scrapbook and would enjoy having complete books for each of my kids, the reality is that will probably not get done in this season of my life. My blog, however, takes only a few minutes out of my day to update and keeps things well organized and easily accessible.
All this to say I am committing to blog more consistently this year. :)
