The 5 W's of the D Family

I originally saw this post on Wife Mommy Me. Thanks Stephanie for the idea.

WHO ||  Wayne, Leah, Hailey and Griffin. Wayne and I met in a trashy nightclub, were friends for about 6 months and then started dating (7/12/03). I knew just after a month of dating that he was the man I wanted to spend my life with. We were married 11/11/06, had our daughter 6/26/11 and our son 7/14/15. We are up in the air right now whether we want to stop at two kids (one of each) or go for a third. We are not in a rush at this point. Only time will tell.



WHAT ||  I originally started this blog to document and "scrapbook" our life about starting a family, etc. Since starting this blog, it has become so much more than that. I've met some really great people through blogging and I've had some of the best times/friendships with those people. Sometimes I get carried away with other stuff and what I think blogging should be and I have to remind myself of the original reason why I blog... for myself and my family. I'm trying to get back to that place.

WHEN ||  I started blogging back in April 2010, when we decided to start a family. The blog has been called a few different things since then. I have shared a miscarriage, two pregnancies that equaled two children, a few job changes, a few moves (one across country to Las Vegas), countless linkups and favorites and fun.

WHERE ||  We call Las Vegas, Nevada home as of right now, but Minnesota will always be where our true home and family is. We moved to Las Vegas May of 2015. We love the city, everything it has to offer, the weather and have made a few friends in the process.


WHY ||  Sometimes I ask myself why I blog, but I think I touched on this question above. I think when so much time has gone by with no posts or updates that I should just quit, but then I always find myself coming back to my little space on the internet. I have a list of literally a million things I need to update and share, but no matter how long that list gets, I don't think I will ever quit blogging. I call myself a "part-time blogger." It suits me. Like I said above, this space has introduced me to so many friends (online and IRL) and like Stephanie said, it's a hobby that allows me to be creative, expressive and network with other women and mommies. Can't beat that reason.

Until next time.
