Sorry I am not a blogger. I honestly go through a quandary about five times a week regarding the internet and how "forward" our society is moving regarding technology being the epicenter for what might be called relationships. I have this blog mainly to encourage and document our family and what life for us is made up of.
I have received some of the most encouraging emails and I will reply once I get more than this ten minutes at the computer. See, our little girl still doesn't like to sleep and takes a max of 45 minute naps which I pray is changing. The blog world is hard for me because I believe that with all of my heart we are supposed to be sitting at coffee with people, reading books next to one another, serving together, talking face to face, and living life not on our IPhones, IPads, IMacs, I-this, I-that, Internet, Instagram, etc. I have a very hard time with conversations over email because I would so much rather talk to people face to face because it is a million times stronger and more personal than this "other" land.
I plan on doing an I-fast just to see what can be done when there are no distractions from a life I can really live. I get soooo easily distracted and sooo don't want my daughter to think of my Iphone as an appendage to my body :)
Nonetheless, I will continue to share what's on my heart, whether it be the easy stuff or the really good/hard stuff. Here are some pics from our trip to Hawaii this last week and a word of warning for you mommas, don't take your baby out of your time zone. Travel only north or south. Trust me.
We also just got back from a lovely weekend at the coast with Matt's amazing family. They are fantastic and hopefully pics to come soon.
Happiest baby on the block.
