A Lesson in Picture Posting

In my first post, I promised that I would learn how to make my new blog more interesting, with pictures and links and polls and other things that I don't know about yet. For now we will start with some photographs...well wouldn't you know it...I just happen to have some new, beautiful pictures of Braelyn! Perfect! Casey is giving me my first lesson, so here it goes.

Hello, my name is Braelyn Cute-as-a-button Cease. What's yours?

I love this picture.

Is she Casey's daughter or what!

The Antique Rose Emporium

There is an Antique Rose Emporium about 20 minutes outside of Brenham. It is the cutest place ever! There are little garden trails, and gazebos, and an adorable country chapel. One day on our way back from college station, we pulled in and took Braelyn's 14 month pictures...which will substitute for the 12 month pictures that we didn't take. The bright side to this is that then she couldn't walk...and now she can!

So there's that. I did it! With captions and everything! Thanks Casey for a successful picture posting lesson, and for taking these beautiful pictures of our little girl.

Starting Fresh

Hello Friends! This is my second attempt at blogging. On my first blog, I posted a few entries, but then I gave it up because it took me a ridiculous amount of time to actually say anything. I went several months in a blog-free life, but I can't help feeling like I'm missing out. So I deleted the first one, and I am starting fresh. It still takes me a ridiculous amount of time, but I am determined to keep at it and I'm sure that eventually I will be able to complete a blog in a reasonable amount of time. I am even going to try to put pictures and links and other things that I see on other people's blogs...oh, and I am going to actually read other people's blogs! (If you have any tips on how to manage all of this, please leave a comment!)

Joking aside, I am excited to re-enter this online community, and not just for the novelty of it. There are exciting and precious things happening in my life, and I want to take notice of them and I want to share them. So here I go...again!
