Come join us in Alabama!

I received the greatest surprise this morning when I checked my following list. Rachel, who you all know I think is awesome, has started a new place where Alabama Bloggers can get together and well, blog. She is just starting it up today and if you are an Alabama Blogger you need to go over there and introduce yourself. And spread the word on your own blog. This could be huge and it would be neat to be in on the ground floor of it.

I love blogging. I started this blog because I want to remember all those crazy, funny, sweet things my children do all day. I want to be able to look back and remember what a good honorable husband I have. When I was a young mom and just had one baby I could not even imagine that I would ever forget one little thing that Tyler did. Well, along came Matt, and then Abbie, and before I knew it I was forgetting things. Mark would say, "Remember when..." and I wouldn't remember. I tried scrapbooking, but that was a big fail, and I tried writing it all down in a journal at night, but that didn't last long. When I first discovered BooMama's blog way back when, I thought, "I can do this." Not be BooMama of course, because she is super incredible, but I knew I could take a few minutes and write down what was funny or sweet or just important to me THAT day.

But, even though that is my focus of this blog, I LOVE all the new friends (and my real-life sister) I have gotten to "meet." I love reading other people's blogs and reading the comments that you leave me. It's like a little "Yeah!" when I check and there are comments from my online friends. Because I am here with the kids all day and it is constant busy, I don't spend a lot of time on the phone (well, Rebekah is the exception, we could spend all day together and still spend all the next day on the phone if we let ourselves), so checking all my friend's blogs early in the morning is so fun for me.

I do hope you will go over and check out Alabama Bloggers and introduce yourself. Even if your aren't from Sweet Home Alabama. We are pretty friendly down here, we would love to have you visit for awhile!


  1. What a great idea! I'll have to check it out!
