Being at the Crop all day for the third day, you'll never know how surprised I was to enter our camper late on Valentine's night to find such sweet gifts on the table. The first thing that caught my eye was the pretty Valentine balloon with "I Love You" on it. In front of it on the table were 3 roses in a pretty little vase, some marshmallow Peeps (I love those!) and an iPod cover for attaching to my shorts/pants for running! And the best of all was the most beautiful card Kent got me! I just melted with all the sweet things he did. He put a lot of thought into this. We are very practical people and do not make a lot out of all the holidays that come down the pike. Our birthdays and anniversary are about it. I love doing and getting things because we "want" to not because we "have" to. So though this was a holiday, it wasn't a norm for us. We do exchange cards but this one this year was very touching. Thank you so much, Sweetie. I love you with all my heart!!

Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
