I started this blog in April 2010 when my boys were just three and five years old as a way to capture memories. I wanted to look back and have more than just a photograph with a vague memory of that snapshot in time. I wanted to capture more dimension – the voice, the emotion and the sentiment. I wanted to roll all that up and preserve it to be reopened down the road.
I had no idea that writing down some memories would change me so deeply. Enthused by my new task, I started to view the events of the day differently. I started to see stories unfold where I used to see a normal mundane task. The chatter of things to do suddenly became a narrative of stories to write, a dialogue waiting to be typed out that night. This new lens made me happier. I stopped rushing and started observing and in that observation I found more dimension in my life.
I found my voice.
