I should blog. I should blog. I should blog but I always forget. Or watch Netflix. Or fall asleep. Or eat discounted Valentine’s candy and get lost on Etsy. It’s been months since I’ve written here. I think that although blogging is in many ways just writing, and generally derived from spontaneous ideas, it has to be planned for me to actually do it. So … Continue reading I’m the worst blogger on Earth.
Yesterday I read an article in Parenting Magazine called Judgment Day. I’d give you the link, but alas, it was in a *gasp* printed magazine, and their website seems to have no direct link to the articles that they print.

As we get closer – DAYS closer, that is – to parenthood, I wanted to be sure to start up a blog so our family and friends, both near and far, can follow our adventures.
