Where In the World?

I have to admit, I am a crappy blogger. But, but, but......yeah, no excuses.

So I guess the operative thing to talk about is what I have been up to. I haven't been scrapbooking too much lately, but I have had a lot going on.

I do have another reason to start back up again.

Hubby and I had been trying for a couple years and we finally succeeded! Much to our surprise he came a little earlier than we expected. Our little one showed up on the scene at 33 weeks which resulted in 2 weeks in special care nursery. Despite the drama, both me and our new family addition are healthy and thriving.

And now for me, I have am shifting gears. Between the cold winter weather and a premie in the house, I've been cooped up. With a different change of pace come different things to do.

In my after baby bit of organization, I found a bunch of papers in an envelope that had a message on it that I have heeded for a number of years - "DO NOT HTROW AWAY".
And of course with its contents, I certainly would never.

What was in it?

Family records. Old family history and completely unorganized, but completely intriguing and sitting there collecting dust and the history me thought that was a shame. Besides, if you read my last and very old blog post, I love a good treasure hunt and this is one treasure hunt that is not only interesting, but important. Maybe not to the many, but it is important to my family.

And so I begin.
