Live Laugh Love and Write It Down



This has been a fun week. I posted up a photo scavenger hunt for June and I am having a blast watching my friends and family post photos for the hunt. I've added 4 new friends and their photos have given me so many new ideas.
 
I really needed this. I've been in a long writing and photography slump since winter. A conversation with a co-worker last week reminded that I just need to sit still and write, no matter what. That same friend has a blog and she is strongly considering shutting it down on its one year anniversary. She asked how often I post and she was surprised when I said I used to post every single day for about year and a half and then I just slowly quit posting at all for awhile. I hope she doesn't shut it down. Her blog, Sippy Cups and Prada, is funny, sweet and genuine ... just like her. I truly enjoy her posts and I try to say so in the comments. 
 
I think a lot of us are looky-loo's but it is nice to read comments. However, I've come to the conclusion that more than anything I love going back and looking at my posts so I can remember the things hubby and I have done together.  For about the first 8 years of our relationship I didn't take a lot of photos or write.  Oh, how I wish I could go back and record all the great places we've been and the snapshot moments we've shared. Relying on my memory was a very bad idea. Oh how I wish I could go back and record it. But I can't.
 
What I can do is start fresh today. I can grab my camera and record my life just as it is today. And write.  To be continued .....
 
Do you record your life?
 
love, susan
