Ive spent a lot of time reading in this book lately.

All 180 pages of it.
My mom wanted a blog book of this blog for the year 2009.
Being the generous Mom that she is she bought me one too.
Shes good to me like that.

I never realized how much my blog meant to me until I held it in my hands. Ive poured a lot of my heart and thoughts into this blog. Sometimes I'm embarrassed of how raw my emotions are but they are real and I'm glad I have them.

Most of all I get so happy when I see John or the boys look through the book. I hope they know how much they mean to me. This blog is for them and no one else.

Although since they don't comment I appreciate the rest of you who read too :)
To those of you who read my ramblings, thank you for your support and your kind words and encouragement.

This is my place in the world to sort through my thoughts.
Ive learned so much about myself through writing.

I never knew how much I loved to write until I started this blog.

Oh Lisa, you have taught me so much, I so much wished I had kept a journal for you and your brothers of the day to day stuff. And you are a good writer. Want to 'ghost' write my memories? J/K

That's so fun! I have wanted to make one of my own. Do you know where was it done?

I did it through the Cutest Blog on the Block. I liked their covers. I did set up a dummy blog though and import my blog into that one and deleted out posts that were videos or somewhat irrelevant so I didn't have to pay extra for those to be in my blog. Then I just deleted that dummy blog.

Oh how cute a blog book!!! What a special treasure for your whole family:)
I have given my family a "photo" book the past few years for Christmas/holidays. Last year I started making them for clients too......but I found myself wanting to keep them all! That is so sweet of your mom to get you one too:)

I've recently started working on my first blog book, the year 2009. I'll do the other years too. I love it. It looks great online. When I feel like spending the money to print it I'll order it. I am soooo excited. Lisa, just so you know I always read your blog. Sometimes so busy eating that I don't comment:) but I love it. I love being part of your life again! It's been too long. xoxo

Blog books are the best. I really need to finish 2007 and 2009. Chad did 2008 for me Christmas and it is my most favorite gift.
