I'm 29 years old (and plan to stay there forever). I live in Miami, but don't visit the beach often enough. It's not the glamourous life you'd think of when I say "I live in MIAMI". I met my husband when I was just 14, and he was 11 (totally robbed the cradle), and we started dating when we were 21 and 17. We got married in 2007 and had our first son, Marco in June of 2009. Our second son, Jonas, was born just 15 months later in September of 2010. We are madly in love with each other and with each of our little blessings... and we love Jesus above all.
I first decided to start blogging because I was too lazy to make a baby book for Marco. He was already almost one, I had just found out I was pregnant with my second and still hadn't made a single page of his one-year-baby book. I'm not crafty, but I am somewhat techie.
Then my best friend told me I should keep a journal with all of my experiences, tricks and stories so that when SHE had a baby, she could follow along and learn from someone who's already been there. I loved this idea. Every mom has stories to share... and I'm no exception! And I also loved the idea of bringing helpful tips and hope to other moms in the same boat as me. We all need support.
And so, the Table For Four blog was born.
One piece of advice I can give to other bloggers, which I myself need reminding of all the time, is to remember who and why you're blogging. I'm blogging for me and my boys. I blog to keep special moments frozen in time. I blog to have a reminder of how messy and wonderful this life has been. I blog so that one day when my boys ask me to tell them their story, they'll have every accurate word of it... the good, the cute, the bad and the horrible. I do not blog to become blogfamous, or have a million followers or be blopular (I just made up that word). But don't get me wrong, I would still LOVE to be all of those things, but that is not my reason for doing this. It's easy to get caught up in the who's who of the blog world. Just remember that to YOUR kids, you are the ONLY "who" that really matters.
Thank you so much, Lindsey for setting up this intro... I have already found several awesome blogs through this link-up and I've been thrilled to be included! If you'd like to read more about my struggles, come on by and say Hi!
