FTSF: I blog because

24 May

The main reason why I started this blog was to help out my friends who are expecting or who have babies younger than Andrew (wow, it feels weird typing that). I wanted to share my experiences with certain mama & baby gear because I know how overwhelming it can be. I know they could always read articles out there and check out other forums for their suggestions, but I always felt better reading about product reviews from someone I know, so I hope to help those friends out in any way I can.


I also wanted to document my days with my son. Our outings, his milestones. I just like to have it on “paper” a virtual journal of sorts. You never know when mommy brain will strike, so I like to record as much as I can before it does! I will say that starting over again after having a food blog for so long has been challenging. I thank all of you reading this blog. Yes, all three of you!

Speaking of recording our outings, we’re headed up to Santa Barbara this weekend. I haven’t been in so long. Andrew did so well on our trip to Oxnard for the Strawberry Festival that I truly hope he’ll be just fine heading a few more hours up north. How are you spending your memorial day weekend?

    I love that you want to document your days with your son. That, in many ways, is why I blog, too.
