I write because
- I need space to record all my thoughts & hash them out
- I need someone other than my bestest friends hearing about all the trials of my life
- sometimes really beautiful things happen and I want to keep track of them
- I can look back at my life at a later date and reflect; (I am a historian, after all!)
- my friends always tease me about having a super interesting memoir; now I can say, I’ve already got that, and seriously, I just want a boring life!!
- even though my life has a lot of surprises, there are so many things and people that I’m grateful for
