"This June marks the one-year anniversary of PAIL. As a website, we remember what we were doing a year ago, but what about all of us as its individual readers?"
I like this theme a lot, because it is the main reason why I blog.
My memory, I have found, is not that great. Whereas my husband can recall activities and events from 5-10 years ago--I am lucky if I remember last month...
So, I use my blog as a journal.
Originally, it was because I was interested in web design and programming and because most of our extended family are a long distance apart from us.
So, keeping with the Theme...I am going to look back at various Junes in my life...
Hmmm...it seems the very first June post I wrote was a praise of Sarah Vowell (who I still love!)
If you haven't read the book I reference in that post--please do. And most of what I said in that post is still relevant as to how I am and how I live my life...(Oh, and I did send her a fan letter...)
Now, unto the specific IVF Journey, this post is before our second cycle, the one that finally brought us Willow...
as you can tell in the post, a lot of things had changed...some for the better (weight loss) but some for the worse (despite the title of the post, I was really faking the hopefulness there).
What a difference a year makes...this was me trying very, very hard to deal with a newborn, PPD and, well...just everything.
But, my favorite post from that June, was this one about my Grammie.
And, the rest...well, the rest is me finding my way as a mother again...deep thoughts...and
Looking back, I can see what I was and where I was. I can see how my children have changed and how they have changed me. How I have learned through this blog to appreciate things in life...and how, there are times I have to be reminded of this...by looking back.
