New Blog!

I have been talking about starting a blog for a few weeks now, but have had various reasons for talking myself out of it - I'm too private, I'm not a "funny" writer, my life isn't interesting enough, we don't have any kids, no one would read it etc. etc.  I've decided to throw caution to the wind and invite you to share in my life (if you so choose) for the following reasons:

1.  I like reading other people's blogs.  I have picked up many recipes, DIY inspirations, organizational ideas, travel tips, and so on.  I figure, once in a while, surely I must have something interesting to share!

2.  I enjoy writing.  I used to think I wanted to be a journalist (that is, when I wasn't planning to become a dress designer?!).  In fact, I only went into the School of Business at Auburn because I got a scholarship - I thought I'd transfer into communications (until I actually took Intro to Journalism...but that's a story for another day!)

3.  I love keeping up with memories.  I've gone through many phases - I kept a diary much longer than I'd care to admit and I have most of high school and college organized into cute scrapbooks.  I love looking back at periods in my life and remembering the friends I've made and what I learned/taken from from each stage of my life.  For some reason, post-college, I have not done a good job with this and I'd like to have this blog to encourage me to document my life.

So really, this blog is mostly just for me...I hope to one day turn it into a "blog book" like I've seen people do and maybe this will save me a heck of a lot of time scrapbooking.  I can't promise how frequently I'll blog - I'm sure it'll come and go, but I will do my best.  Shout-out to my brother, Rhett and hubby, Tim who helped me name this blog!  A close second was my Dad's suggestion..."Tell-N-Photo-Lynds."  Yes, that is a pun for telephoto lens...Dad loves his complex puns  :)
