I've never really had much of a journal even thought my dad has constantly harped on me to keep one. Now after 39 years, 3 kids, and so many amazing life experiences later, I finally see the importance of keeping some kind of record of my life. So this blog is going to be past experiences and lessons learned, current events in my life, random thoughts, and future aspirations. It's really going to be a free / for all mind dump whenever I feel inclined to write. My thoughts, experiences, successes, failures, and random life stuff, published mainly for my family and kids to check out sometime down the road. Who knows.. maybe this will be an interesting story for my kids or grand kids someday.
