Inagural Blog the Ollivier's are finally going to blog.

We won't blog often enough for some of you but at least we're here! Some may wonder why it took so long for us to get up and running. Well...the reality is that I (Ann) have serious completion issues which has hindered my ability and desire to blog.

Here's the vicious cycle as it presents itself:
I will blog one day and not the next.
Then I will feel guilty for not blogging consistently.
Then I will procrastinate blogging because I feel guilty that I didn't do it previously.
Then I will not blog, not because I don't want to, but because I haven't in such a long time and I feel like I need to catch up which will require WAY too much time.
Then I keep not blogging.
Then I realize that to catch everyone up on the last 3 months (or longer) will take too much time and energy so I decide to put it off until later.
Six months goes by and now it's definitely too much to catch up on....
Then it's been a year and I just decide to send a Christmas letter because I know I can do that.
Then the blog dies because I never blog for fear of not blogging.
Vicious cycle.

Anyhow, please don't expect to hear from us often and you might be pleasantly surprised.
