I first started blogging back in August of 2011.  The girls at work got me onto it and in about 10 minutes flat they set me up on Facebook (which I had never used) and set up a blog website (I had never read a blog) and they told me, “OK, now.  Start blogging!” (They seriously didn’t even ask…they just TOLD me to do it.) I was actually their boss – but those young girls were always bossing me around.

Today I wanted to take a minute to speak to those of you who are new visitors to my blog. Just a couple things.

#1 – Sorry about my old blogs.  They were terrible. You might want to stick to reading only the blogs since…ah…maybe July 25th???  I didn’t take my blog too seriously before that time and now that so many of you are now susbscribing – well…it actually gives me a brain freeze.  But, thank you for coming alongside me.  It inspires me to keep going.

#2 –  If you have tried to contact me – I haven’t a clue how to get into that email. One of these days I will try to find someone who can help me figure out how to do that.

It also occurred to me that those of you who are new to my blog know little or nothing about me. In all of my blogs through all of the years – the blog with the most visits EVER – was the one my daughter wrote recently.  “A Peek Inside My Family.”  I love that.  It probably peaked people’s interest because she has a much fresher and more youthful voice, and also it simply DID give you a peak into our family.

I try not to post about my family very much, but  thought today might be a good day to give you another peek into our family life.  Today I would like to introduce you to my 3 kids.

My kids went – VIRAL.  (I think 2.8 million views would constitute viral?)  6 years ago my daughter, and youngest child, was married and my sons did a wedding toast to her and her husband.  Our videographer posted it on YouTube and suddenly the whole world had access to one of our most memorable family moments.  What a strange phenomenon.

So today – I would like to introduce you to my 3 kids.  If you would like to see the video, just click on the link below. (I really do need to find out how to make that link show up better)
