I did it!

I did it! I finally took the plunge and created my own blog. {Insert applause here!}

I can't remember how I originally got started looking at blogs [although, I think Instagram may have had a hand in that] but over the course of the past few months my "reading list" on my phone has grown and grown, and grown with links to numerous blogs created by some pretty awesome ladies.

I thought to myself: "Self, you really should start your own blog! Even if no one else reads it, at least you'll have a place to jot down thoughts and to document your life with words and pictures and be able to look back one day and remember those things with much more ease."

You see, I have a TERRIBLE memory. Incidentally, I don't think it's totally ridiculous for me to say that I think I'm going to end up with Alzheimer's one day. I'm being completely serious here. No joke. I am so forgetful and I feel like it has only gotten worse with age {because being 22 is so old, right?}. Anyways, I figured that being able to document our life here on this new little space of mine would be a great way for not only me, but Peyton as well to be able to reflect on our journey together. 

I had a few hurdles in getting started. For instance:
1. What in the world do I title it?!
2. Will I even have the time to keep up with it?
3. What would I have to talk about?

Well, I figured out the solution to all of those concerns. {I think.}
1. Guess How Much I Love You was always a favorite childhood story of mine and thinking of it always elicits happy memories of my parents reading me and my sister bedtime stories and tucking us into our beds. Additionally, "I love you to the moon and back" {a similar phrase to the last line of said book} is something Peyton and I say to each other all of the time. My mom, sister, and I even got matching tattoos last year based on the phrase! 

So, to sum up point nĂºmero uno: the title basically reflects my love for my family.
2. No, I probably won't have much time to keep up with this! BUT I'm sure gonna try. I know this isn't going to be an everyday thing, but it'll be here for me to record the little things and the big things if I so chose.
3. My life is not super exciting. I don't go skydiving every weekend or live some fast-paced New York lifestyle (that would be my sister instead :P). But it is my life. And one day I will be I'm already so happy that I've started this blog to share our life journey!

Whew! What an incredibly long first post. I am just so excited to have finally joined the blogosphere! :)
