My Blog

I decided on "keepin it real" as the title of my very first blog because keepin it real is exactly what I feel I need to work on in my life. It's so easy to get caught up in what society, friends, the average LDS person, or family members expect of me as a mother, as a wife, or as a family member. Homeschooling isn't exactly a socially acceptable thing. Nor is hardly watching any TV or rarely watching movies. I have strong feelings for each of those categories but those will have to be delved upon at a later time.

I've been realizing that one of the most important things we can accomplish during our life on earth is becoming a genuine person. Genuine in who we are, what we want and in our relationships with others. It's easy to have our minds and emotions become muddled up with the voices of others expectations. But, I've been coming to recognize and ignore these "voices" by recognizing and acting upon my own voice instead. By doing so I'm getting to know the real me and am beginning to improve the relationships I have with others.

Anyhow, for now, I am so excited to start my own blog!

I love your design, how did you do the background? What a beautiful style and taste you have. Orgill blog appears a little crude compared to yourse, did Johnny help you? :)

John helped me export a few of the pic's (I didn't realize that they weren't exporting because of their massive file size).

The background is one of blogspots templates...but, I like it. I can't give myself much credit for my blog. Blogspot really makes it quite easy to set up your own blog!
