I’ve been thinking about starting this blog for some time. My intention is to record recipes and family history to share with my girls. My grandmother has a family bible which contains much of my father’s family history but there is only one bible. And as I’ve watched my in-laws spread family photos and heirlooms among their six children I wanted to do something different. I wanted to provide both girls with the same momentos and memories. I thought a blog would be a great place to record the things I want to share. And surely a digital family history should last longer than a series of books filled with paper recipes and pictures.
So tonight I finally got the motivation to get started. I wanted to make peanut butter balls which happen to be a family favorite, and couldn’t find the recipe. I kept thinking if I had only started that blog then I wouldn’t be searching through every piece of paper in my kitchen. So here I am tonight getting started on the blog 4mygirlz. My first post….the peanut butter balls recipe that I found buried in a basket of recipe books.
