NaBloPoMo 2012

It's here again.  National Blog Posting Month, November 2012.

My mother's group (the Milk Moms) again decided to opt-in and many of us are participating in NaBloPoMo - you can see their blogs on my blog roll.

I love the self discipline of making myself write everyday.  Occasionally I'll be able to post-date an entry or two, but generally I am writing my post on that same day.

I started my blog in earnest way back in February of 2008.  I had written a handful of entries before then, but decided to go public in February 2008.  My blog has certainly evolved - I thought it would be a way to record the neat interactions and finds I had at the thrift store or on Craigslist, but it turned in to a fairly typical Mommy blog.  Along the way, I've made a conscious decision to blog honestly and authentically.  If I only share the good times and funny stories about the girls, then it's not really an authentic picture of my life without the challenges as well.  I had told some family members about this blog before I made that decision and since they may be uncomfortable reading about the more personal aspects of my life, I started a separate blog just about the girls - unfortunately, I rarely update it but it would be so easy to do, so I really should.  (I love that I can take a photo and publish to my blog all in one easy step using the blogger app on my iphone).

So, here I go again.  Thanks for coming along for the ride.
