Because -

of these 2 blogs I entered this online community 2 years ago.

Melinda and Tyler at A Year Without Peanut Butter were the first people I knew that had a blog. It all started 3 years ago when they went to Taiwan to teach for a year and started their blog to keep everyone updated on their experience.

Heather at Running the Race is my inspiration for scrapbooking and photography.

These daughters of ours made it seem so easy to share their adventures and pictures via a blog so I decided to give it a whirl. It was also a way for me to share what was going on in my life without making many, many phone calls! Thanks, M and H for encouraging me and for being faithful readers - love you!


  1. Happy Blogiversary! I'm glad we got you started on this. We love posting on ours, but I think we enjoy even more reading other peoples. It keeps us so much more connected, even just reading your day to day happenings and see photos. We feel so much closer. Thanks for being a faithful reader and poster.
