Blogging it up

blog. \ˈblȯg, ˈbläg\ noun : a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer ; also : the contents of such a site

i need somewhere to write things. i figured my BLOG is a good place.

i just got over being sick. it sucked. last Saturday we went to a park and my cousin Mandi took family pictures for us. it was so much fun. (but, it was freezing, and i was wearing a summer dress... hence, the impending illness). now that my family is growing up, we seriously, have so much fun together. i have never been more excited for thanksgiving.

p.s. blogging is harder than it looks...
