Inaugural Blog

Okay, so after reading tons of blogs and realizing that no matter how hard I try to find a website that my work will not block, I am finally ready to throw in the towel and become an official "blogger." Our previous website through charged a minimal annual fee but it was worth it to have it not considered a blog (meaning work would not block it). Recently my disguised blog was discovered due to the number of hits it was receiving so now it has officially been BLOCKED!! Needless to say, I am ready for a free option since the only purpose in paying the fee was to avoid being blocked from private networks. Since this benefit has been eliminated, I have decided the ease of our old site is not worth the fee and FREE is always the best way to go. I also assume that as we enter year #2 with Caroline, I will be able to highlight her life and I won't feel the need to post 50 gazillion pictures at one time--guess we shall see!

I hope you will enjoy our new site and that you will continue to keep up with our family via our posts. Please redirect your favorites to keep up with this site as we begin phasing out our old site As a new blogger, I would love to hear your tips and tricks about this site. Feel free to include them in a post.
