Salutations one and all! Welcome to our fresh little blog...
Its true we've joined the blog-o-sphere. We've made this very conscious decision after much cautious deliberation. Here is the data that we came up with.....
A. people in general like you better when you have blog. (its true we've done the research)
B. people don't believe stories you tell them unless you've blogged it WITH pictures. (and at least in that case, they can forward it on to all of the people that you've never met, but definitely should hear that story.)
C. "grown ups" admittedly like to creep around people's blogs to "keep up" with their lives. (don't worry, we don't expect many comments from the creepers, but we know you're there!)
D. blogging is so cool, that even the UNCOOL people have been doing it for years.
E. we can't get anyone to return our phone calls or emails. they all want us to "hit them up on their blog". WE'RE DOING THIS TO SAVE OUR FRIENDSHIPS!!!!
F. how else will be able to share our abundance of sarcastic and dry observations of the world around us to those we love?
G. if we had our way...we'd probably be social hermits. we love spending time with eachother. we love staying home. we love working on things together. we love making things together. we love doing things together. we're not really the type to need to "hit the town" with our seperate gangs or anything. we're both fairly simple....yet we have many people we love with our whole hearts and would do anything for. when we're with those people, we enjoy every minute. we think about and talk about those friends and family all the time - we just aren't motivated enough to "set things up". so now we can blog with the ones we love AND NO ONE IS GONNA STOP US!
You may ask yourself..."What should I expect of this blog?" That's a great question! Here's a great answer:
- You should expect short and sweet spurts of highlights in our life.
- You should expect several picture posts. (a picture says 1,000 words. remember? you learned this already....)
- You should expect random observations regarding just about any topic.
- You should not expect daily journaling of any sort.
- You also shouldn't expect TOO MANY gushy details about our lives...but you'll get the general idea.
Needless to say....this should be very interesting.
