blog book

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you might remember that I always joke that I'm writing everything here "for posterity's sake."  The truth of the matter is that I'm only half joking.  I am terrible at keeping a traditional journal, so writing here on the blog is my way of chronicling our life events.

That's why when Tim surprised me two Christmases ago with this present, I was ecstatic.  What better way to keep an actual record of the things I'd been writing about "for posterity's sake"?  After that year, I made him promise that he'd give me the same present every year for Christmas.  And he didn't disappoint.

Here's our book for 2012:



It is possible, and perhaps even probable, that our posterity will read through these books and think, "Wow my mom/grandma/great-grandma was a freak!"  But that's ok.  At least they'll have some idea what our personalities were like.  And maybe someday, somehow, something I write will make a difference for them.

If nothing else, I want them to know that I thought about them long before they were born.  That I don't do anything in my life without considering the consequences that my actions might have on them.

And I hope that someday, when my baby girl is no longer a baby, she'll be able to read this book and never wonder about how much I have always cared.
