OK, it's been just over two months since I posted anything. Like a dolt, I said I was going to post more often and then did not. As a result of Muriel Crawford's inspiration today, I'm going to take this in a slightly different direction and begin my memoirs.

Muriel Crawford has written several books and writes all the patriot biographies for my Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter. She was the program today and I believe that she inspired more than just me. So, Muriel is doing her memoirs chronologically, but she said that you don't have to do it that way. She read a snippet from her memoirs and it was really funny. Her presentation excited me in such a way that here I am giving it a go!

I have spent years tracing my genealogy but I have not found one ancestor who has "memoirs". How excited I am to be undertaking this project so that I can be the first! In doing genealogy, one finds when and where their ancestors were born, when and where they lived, who they married, and when and where they died. But what type of person were they? What inspired them to live their lives? What events shaped them into the person that they were? This last question is the focal point of my "memoirs". I hope to share events in my life that have shaped me into the person that I am.

I hope that you will come along with me on my journey!
