Jumping on the Bandwagon

OK, so it's taken me forever. I never really saw the point before. But now I get it - or at least I get MY reasons. Yes, after reading numerous blogs written by my friends, I have finally started my own. So why, you ask, am I finally taking the plunge after holding out for so long?

There are several reasons. One is that all my friends are doing it. OK, OK, that's not really the reason...but it sounded least for a laugh.

A real reason is that since getting ready for and having a baby, I haven't had time to scrapbook in what seems like forever. This is a way for me to be sure to get some of my journaling down, and have it all in the same place. And have that place be somewhere that I can actually find when I go to work on the scrapbooks again.

A second reason is so that I can better communicate with family and friends who live farther away. All I have to do is tell them about my blog and they can come see pics and find out what has been going on. Yeah!!! If I forget to call, and I do that a LOT lately, there is still somewhere that they can see what is going on in our world.

There is a third reason, but I'll save that for another day. You'll just have to keep coming back to find out what it might be. Hehe...nothing like a mystery to pique your interest, huh?

So, after making the decision, I came up with a dilemna. What do I call my blog? Many of my friends have cool titles that are an alliteration with their last name...the Hullett Horde, Ferren Family News, Growing up Garner. The only one I could come up with for our last name was The Grelle Gazette...and that made me think of deer like animals running around all over. That was not the image I was shooting for.

So then I thought of some other blog names that are a description or sort of a play on words...Marooned in Austin, A Texan Down Under, Inky Rubber. But I just couldn't come up with anything that seemed right for our family.

So then I thought about why I am writing this blog. As I already mentioned, I want to keep up with journaling for my scrapbooks because I am so busy with my blessings right now, that I dont have time for that hobby. And thus my title was born "A Life So Blessed."
