a second.


Le Blog is two whole years old today. So happy birthday to it! So cheers! Cin cin!

The main reason I started blogging was for myself, to document life as I know it. For me. For my family. For my kids. I have the world's worst memory and having a place to write it all down along with corresponding photos is actually quite perfect for me. For example, I was given my grandmother's ring when she passed away... There is a story behind the ring, quite the tale. I just can't remember it. One stone came from someone's ring, another from a different person's and so on. Who's stones and rings they originally were is forever lost. I've tried to remember, I've questioned those who may know, all to no avail. I just know the ring was hers and she had it made out of significant stones from significant peoples and it was special to her and therefore special to me.

Stories like that ring are why I like having this blog. Because not only do I have a habit of forgetting but perhaps my children might as well. I know I'm flattering myself that they may even care.... but they might care. And that's enough for me. Can you imagine being able to read your mom's thoughts or about your day-to-day life as a kid? I know I would eat that riiiight up.

Thanks so much for reading and following along on this journey with us. I've gotten to know some pretty special people through this odd blogging thing and I'm forever grateful. So here I am, two years in and I'll continue trucking right along. andiamo!



  1. Happy Two! That is the reason I stick with blogging, because if not I'd never remember 1/4th of the fun. I've been going back and making yearbooks too...something tangible to keep. And even if Aria doesn't want to look back at it, I am sure I will.

  2. happy second birthday! that means mine is coming up! i need to look this up. i'm so glad you started blogging because i feel like i don't miss out on stuff going on up there as much. and then it's another way we can connect :) love seeing those babies grow too! heart you :)
