I've always wanted to keep a journal (I have at least 10 or 11 empty journals to prove my good intentions). I just don't want to forget all the good stuff (I don't even really want to forget all the bad stuff to tell you the truth). I want to remember it all...to reflect on it, to share it, to keep it close to me. I don't want to forget Annie's first word (I would have never thought that I could forget something so important...but I don't remember what Ross's was). I don't want to forget that I had butterflies in my stomach yesterday when I was crossing the street to meet up with Josh (so I blogged about it) or how Ross kissed me on the cheek the other day and told me that no matter what, I'd always be his favorite girl (man, that's the good stuff in life).
I love stumbling across something that spurs my memory - an old ticket stub or a note that I jotted down. Something that brings me back to a moment that I would never otherwise remember. I love that feeling.
Haven't even been keeping this blog for all that long, but I was looking back on some of my old posts tonight, feeling super sentimental about some of the memories - feeling super happy that I had them written down.
The time that I invest is a small price to pay.
My best friend, Jill (who swore, just like me that she'd never start a blog) started a blog yesterday. Makes me super happy.
So if you don't already have a blog...are you getting my point?!?
* * * did this layout tonight. Am really into doing these quick layouts right now - feels so good to accomplish something - no stress over the outcome.
