For the past few years, I have diligently maintained a Shutterfly photo share site that contains thousands of pictures of our graduation from law school, our wedding, our honeymoon, the sites we saw as we moved around the country, visits from family and friends, our trip to Europe, and my pregnant belly.  When our Baby Bunny was born in September, I began bombarding the site (and by extension our family and friends) with hundreds of pictures each month. I did that to preserve all of the memories we were creating and to keep our family and friends in the loop as we moved further and further away.  

So, why a blog?  I’m really not sure yet, but I know this is different.  Earlier this year while I was home on maternity leave, I finally broke down and joined Facebook, partly because I enjoyed getting updates on the outside world while I was hibernating with my Bunny Boy.  Of course, I quickly “friended” everyone I ever knew in high school or college and their brothers, mothers, and sisters.  One of my “new” Facebook friends was an old friend from college.  On April 7, she posted that Madeline Spohr, a 17 month-old girl who had been born premature, had passed away, and she linked to Maddie’s mother’s blog.  

Before I clicked on that link, I had read law blogs and private family and friend blogs.  I had never read a blog like this, though.  I was immediately taken with Maddie’s charm and beauty and immersed in the unspeakable grief that Maddie’s parents were enduring.  Likely because my own baby bunny was born premature, I felt more empathy than I have ever felt for someone I don’t know.   I started reading her blog every day.  Then I started finding other blogs.  I discovered a whole world I had never known.  I became inspired.  

So, here I am, starting my blog.  What is my blog about?  I’m not really sure about that either.  I have a job that is blog-worthy, but I know this blog will not be about that, because my job is not really who I am (at least for now). Who am I?  Well, let’s see.  I am a mother.  I am a wife.  I am a daughter and a sister.  I am a friend.  I am a cook.  I am a planner, a researcher, and an investigator.  I am silly.  I am happy (usually).  I am a traveller and an explorer.  I am a very amateur photographer and my baby’s own personal paparazzi.  

Maybe my blog will be about some of those things. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
