My main reason for blogging has always been for me. Although I am an avid Instagrammer... blogging still seems to be the best social media platform for expression of words and photos.
I asked some friends and family about their thoughts and I received nothing but positive feedback to bring back my blogging. My favorite photography mentor said..."What if you could read your grandmother's blog?" Which caused me to think, what if someday Olivia could read my blog and learn about the first time I became a grandmother. What if someday Henry has a son that could read all about the silly things his dad did as a little boy? And what if Frankie's children could see all of those photos of her bright blue eyes and antennae pig tails on top of her head?
So much has happened over the past few months...so here is my best attempt to recap a few of the highlights...and then I am moving forward..
