I was looking over the really old posts we had and thought we should probably be coming up on our blogging anniversary. Yep and we passed it right by. As I read over those older posts and looked at the photos I realized how far we've come and all the changes that have taken place in our life and home since we started this blog 3 years ago. We've moved around a lot of rooms, painted and remodeled. We lost Grandma and gained Pop. Those first blog entries I didn't really know what I was doing and I was just winging it. Still don't know everything but I keep learning. There weren't many photos in the first entries until I got my digital camera in May, 2007. A very much used piece of equipment now. What did I do before digital and why did I hesitate so long to get one?  I also realized that although we've done a lot of projects, we've also got a few we still need to finish. Is that how it is for you? Projects just hanging around? What inspires you to get them finished finally? or do you just give up on them and start over?
I remembered why we started this blog in the first place. A school project, yep a school project. I'm still blogging and the kids occasionally check in just to see what I've posted. I keep it up as an online journal I suppose and also to let friends and family far and near know what we are up to. I keep it up to see what all those peoples who's lives I've gotten interested in are doing. There are blogs who are no longer here and I miss them sorely. There are blogs that I still read but not as faithfully as I've found other blogs that I share closer similarities with. So like life this blog has ebbed and flowed, changed and grown. So here's to 3 more years.
Thanks for reading. {{HUGS}} Amanda

So many blogs that I used read are no longer there. I think people just get burned out or life just gets to busy.

I just wanted to let you know that I never got the package from you giveaway. It dawned on me the other day! I hope you had tracking on it!
