I heard it said once that you can judge a woman’s current level of chaos by the status of how cluttered her purse is. I don’t know how accurate that statement is, but I do know that mine is so crazy-messy currently that I’m thinking of just starting over with a new one.

We’ve had the most fun this month. We’ve been crazy road trippers, and it’s been one adventure after another. It's been awesome, and I’m eager to update this blog with pictures and stories, but just haven't  had made the time to do so yet.

But I want to.

I love that this blog updates our extended families as to what we’re up to. I love that it documents memories for us. I love that it serves as a journal for me. And I love the blogging community.

I don’t want my blogging to cease.

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and joined Facebook last year. It’s fun, but, I often find myself being drawn to posting just a quick picture or snippet on there, and then calling it good. I’m not on Instagram or Twitter, but I can see the allure of ease on those sites as well. It’s not that blogging is hard, it’s that it is more time consuming. But I want that. I want to spend the time writing out my thoughts and telling our family’s story. I don’t want to get sucked into just the abbreviated version of our days. In 10 years when the twins are entering high school (gulp), I want this blog to serve as our memory book. I want to be able to look back on our days and see what the summer of two 3year olds looked like.

Hope to make time this the mean time, good night all.

Starting over with new purse or new chaos... or both? :)

My Chaos Monitor is my desk. I think it's peaked, and I made a lot of progress yesterday.
