Here’s a sample of a re-occurring conversation of mine that I find humorous:
Fellow Mom: I just LOVE your blog…I read it everyday – How in the WORLD do you have TIME to do it?
Me: Thanks, a lot of times I blog during nap breaks or after they go to bed at night. It’s sometimes a work in progress – when I get interrupted I just try to pick up the post where I left off..I know it’s the only way I’m going to remember a lot of this year, so I try to find time to write down important moments that I want to share….
Fellow Mom: True, well, do you scrapbook or anything like that?
Me: (Trying to hold back a huge toothy grin) Ummm, no…. I haven’t really found TIME for that…The blog is my scrapbook, baby book, catch-all.
Fellow Mom: (With a look of disappointment) Oh.
Although I love scrapbooks and really admire the energy, time, and creativity that go into each page, for now I’m not a member of the “Scrapbook Junkies”. I think there’s only a few of us left on this planet. Perhaps 18 years from now I’ll find myself “cropping, matting, and mounting” some of the 2,587 pictures that we’ve snapped this year, but for now I think I’ll stick to blogging……
I felt like I needed to explain my perspective before I showed you this…
Brad’s Aunt Deb (pictured) surprised us at Christmas with a scrapbook she created for us and I’ve been wanting to show you some of my favorite pages. (Keep in mind I took pictures of pictures, so it’s not the best quality. It’s much better in person!) Check it out….
Isn’t her talent amazing? What an incredible gift! So personal and such a keepsake! Thanks, Aunt Deb – we are sooooooo grateful!
