In order to go on living one must try to escape the death involved in perfectionism. ~Hannah Arendt
That probably seems like a strange way to start a blog, but it’s very fitting for me.
I’ve tossed around the idea of blogging for several months now. I appreciate the opportunity to have a central place to keep a record of life & thoughts in an organized fashion and to provide a way for family and friends to easily connect with what’s going on in our family, see recent photos, etc. I set up our site a few days ago and have had fun adding links and photos, but I’ve procrastinated on actually posting anything. Pretty dumb considering that’s why I started this in the first place! I guess I felt as though my first post needed to be profound and memorable and deeply touch the hearts of my readers. (Oh, puhleez!) So I’m taking the advice of the writer of the above quote and wrestling myself from the grip of perfectionism… well, at least for one post. ;)
First post done, pressure off. There, that wasn’t so hard!
