What's New in July 2014

Not sure how much info to post on this blog as it is wide open to the Universe, so let me just say "Congratulations" twice and once more and "my Condolences" once.

Two couples tied the knot on the same day.
Four people began a journey that will hopefully last a lifetime.
And one young lady had her writing published (twice this year so far) and no it's not me.
She is still in School, although I will give you a little hint.
She too, has a blog and you can find the link in the sidebar.
And a few days before one special man finished his journey.
I am sure there are many more reasons to celebrate and reflect
and even grieve within our extended family
However, these are a few I have chosen to document.

Since I created this Blog I have struggled with the content.
Should it be
**a glorified facebook page for ranting and raving
**a calendar of events
**my space to journal about our family's life events
**a way to connect the family in a non-invasive way
**and list goes on and on in my head.

However, the main purpose of this blog is a "catch basin"
A place to go to to find the blogs our family members have.
At present the list is fairly short.
But if you know of another,
leave a comment and their blog address and I will add it to the sidebar.

Every year, I make or think about making resolutions that are really(?) unattainable. You know the ones like I am going to loose weight so I can fit into the jeans I had when I was ten.
So this year, I decided to really think about what I want to change/finish/start.

These are my top 5
1. Finish the ultimate family history book, so I can share it at the next reunion.
2. Go on a road trip with my daughter (this should be #1, but it's tooo cold to think about this right now)
3. Eat healthier, cut out the junk food. I notice if it's not in the house I don't eat it.
4. Go to Convention.
5. Share my passions (scrapbooking, crafting, travelling) with others.

What's your resolution for 2014
