I have been going through lots of old papers that I got when my Dad moved. I have been very lucky to find many old letters and books about my family's history. I have loved reading the letters that my great grandmother sent to my grandmother while she was at college from 1939-1943. It has been fascinating to read about the times - what was going on in their personal lives and what was going on in the world. I have also read the letters that my father sent to my mother while he was stationed in Vietnam. I have read letters that friends and family sent to me while I was in Europe over the summer. It is so sad to think that future generations might not have writing like these letters to read. I guess that is also part of the reason I write this blog - to preserve my thoughts on a daily basis. I just wish that I could talk to all of those folks who are now gone.
I am a frustrated writer trying to get the thoughts out of my head. I thought that this blog would be a good way to journal my life and my ideas and to keep up with friends and family. I have a busy and wonderful life. I have a great husband and two wonderful dogs. I have good friends and a crazy (but great) family. I am a runner, a beer drinker, a Georgia Bulldawg, a Caniac, and a triathlete, not to mention a full time employee. I love to shop, watch movies, and read chick lit. If I am not over scheduled, I am just not living!!
