You may have noticed that I've posted some of my old entries within the last week. It's my attempt at getting back to posting more frequently, and I'll probably do it again this month. Especially some of the ones from 2009 when I only had about 40 followers or so, hopefully if I have "re-runs" from that year, you've not read it yet!
My favorite part about looking through old entries is that it's made me get out my Traveling Light book. That's right. I have it in book form.
You see, my sweet sister had my blog turned into a book for my 30th birthday. So all of my writings from 2009 are in hard copy form. It is like reliving moments I had already forgotten about. It really makes me smile since I did a pretty good job of writing down silly moments - like this one - or frustrating moments - like this one or this one - throughout the year.
I need to turn my 2010 writings into book form as well. It's something I want to do every year. I sincerly wish I had started writing A LONG TIME AGO. How fun would it be to flip through the pages of a book from 10 years ago? Or 15 years ago? Boy, that would be a good laugh, wouldn't it - reading the drama from the teen-aged me?
And I wonder what I will think when I look back at what I've written. When I'm 50 and I read about potty training, will I just smile and think, "Oh, Chrissy...don't you miss those days?"
I guessing that's exactly what I'll say.
I would strongly encourage you, if you have a blog, to turn it into printed form. My sister used blurb.com to do mine, and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I would also encourage you, if you don't have a blog, to either start one or find a way to write down the day-to-day happenings in your life. In the olden days, it was called a journal! You'll be glad you did. Really.

Maybe You Need This As Much As I Do
