Why this blog?

Someone recently asked me a simple question.

"Gabi why do you spend so much time on your blog? There must be days when no one visits your page."

And the reason streamed from my mouth as if I had rehearsed it before. But I never had. I don't even think I'd ever really vocalized it.

Yes. This blog is about cooking & baking, children & weight loss. But there is more to it than that - it is a life blog documenting the journey I started years ago and that will take me ... who knows where, in the next ten years. Ten years ago, I was 20 and my expectations of life were very different than that which is my reality now.  Life is harder than I had thought and I realize I was a tad too idealistic in my youth.

I see this blog as an opportunity to document my life and what I am doing so that 10, 20, 30 years from now, my girls can see what their mom was up to, having sacrificed a bit of a career to stay home and "just be a mom."
