What this Blog is All About - Our Life

We have started a blog. Why? To share our lives with the many family and friends who don't live near us. Seems over the years everyone has scattered. (Or rather, we have scattered) Shane's Family in Idaho and Ginger's Family in Wisconsin. There are also the wide range of friends, all over the country, we have made through TurningLeaf seminars. We thought this would be a nice place to keep the world informed of our lives. (Those who dare, anyway!)

The 1st Blog.. here it goes..

Ginger Writes "Well, here it goes... my first blog attempt. I am sitting at the Las Vegas airport awaiting my red eye to Milwaukee. I am heading home for my Dad's 60th Birthday. It is a surprise which means by the time anyone reads this it will have passed and I will most likely be back in the Milwaukee airport Sunday, posting another blog. Although it is going to be a short trip I am excited to get home to see my family. Josh (My Big Brother) is braving the early morning and will be picking me up. I am so excited to see everyone and give Elijah (Nephew) and Emmie (Niece) a great big hug and kiss. This trip was a very spontaneously planned. Shane and I originally planned to go to Duck Creek this weekend to go snowmobiling. But I am glad for the shift because I wouldn't want to miss out on being with my Dad on such a big birthday. My Dad is by far my #1 hero... always has been and always will be. He is the most kind, gentle soul I have in my life. I have learned a lot by his ability to lead by example and his ability to forgive. There have been many times in my life where I have made poor choices. It is my Dad who is always there to love me for who I am and knows we all have to learn from our own mistakes. It is also my Dad who is there to cheer me on when things are going well. His kind eyes and loving hugs are my favorite thing in the entire world. I look forward to them every time I make it home. And with that.. I am getting on my flight.
