My "Back-Burner" Blog

It seems that my blog has been put on the bottom of my checklist as of late. I have great intentions of keeping it up-to-date, but it seems that "higher priority" things have gotten in the way. But, that is going to change. When Kate passed away, 2 of my dear friends put money towards having Kate's blog printed in book-form. This meant so much to me and I was so excited to get it done, especially fearing that there could be a glitch on blogger and I could lose all of those precious memories forever. However, it was harder and more emotional than I ever thought it would be. Having her sweet life documented meant the world to me, but it was so difficult for me to click on that link and re-visit those emotions. A year and a half later, I was able to muster up the courage to do it and here is the end result.......Ta Da:So having this tangible reminder of our Angel Kate, it became clear to me that I need to be better about documenting our lives not only for us, but for our posterity. In the past I've found myself questioning whether I should post certain things, not wanting to broadcast it to the entire blogging world. These things are an important part of our lives and, therefore, I want to document them. With that being said, I have decided to finally go PRIVATE!!! It probably won't come to pass until the first of the year. So in the meantime, please send me your e-mail address in a comment or e-mail me at: marcaerosenvall@yahoo.com.

I doubt that you know who I am, but I have been following you for the past few years. Bryan was in my ward growing up, and his mom taught me Piano and he was quite a few years older then me, but my brother was friends with Andrew. I have alittle boy who is two and I love to see your cute little family grow and learn. You have really inspired me to be a better parent when it comes to your memories of Katie. I also took your new years resolution as a personal challenge, and my girl friends and I did a 5k a few months back. Baby steps right. We are planning to do at least 5 next year, and grow from there. I would love to continue to follow your blog, if you would allow me.
Thanks

I've been following your blog for quite sometime now and would love to be included. To refresh your memory you helped me out in planning my sister's baby shower with different ideas you used in the past and I still can't thank you enough (except for introducing me to those strawberry milkshake whoppers)! I'm so glad you made the blog into a book it will be wonderful memories for you to have forever! My information is as follows:

Marcae,
I am so glad you have the hardcopy version of your blog for Kate. It will be so special to have. I am going to do that after awhile with ours. I love it, but like you say.. it is time consuming. I would love to be included in your blog when you go private. We went private a few weeks ago and it just feels safer. Tricia Prows Brooks

Fritzsche's said...

You already have my email so don't forget to add me. Maybe I should do the same. I haven't decided what to do but it's probably the smart thing so maybe I'll join ya. I'm so glad you were able to get Kate's book finished. It's a lot of work I know because I've started one twice now and then later give up and don't do it. I'm still so torn between that and scrapbooking and so then I just get stuck doing neither. Love ya!

The Mason Family said...

Marcae...I am a heart mom as well and I came across Kate's blog one night as I was jumping from one heart family's blog to another. By the time I stumbled upon your blog, Sweet Kate had already passed away but I was, and still am, so touched by her story. I have enjoyed following your lives and I hope that you will consider inviting me to follow your family blog once you go private (msccmason(at)gmail.com). Best wishes…

Sorry to see you go, I don't know you, but stumbled across your blog through a friends. I've enjoyed reading about your family and your running is such an inspiration. I won't ask to be included, since I'm sure it's for friend's and family only. Good luck with your move and all that you do.
