Introduction to the blog world

Welcome to our blog: Watching the River Run.

We are newlyweds who lead super-active, family & friend-filled lives. Kelli is a 28 year young Leo, and Patrick is a 31 year old Sagittarius. Catch that? Ha! We reside in eastern Missouri, suburbia life of St. Louis. I, Kelli, chose this blog name from the song, "Watching the River Run" from one of my favorite bands, 'Loggins and Messina'. If you research the lyrics, you may find that you have your own take on the meaning, which to me is what makes music amazing art. Watching my parents listen to this song-namely my mom, and watching her fill up with tears EVERY.TIME she hears it, I know that her and I find this song to relate the River, to life. Watching the river run~~watching the days, years, and life go on, the happy times, the sad times, and all the times in between. Growing older, becoming wiser, and accepting the fact that life won't slow down, you've got only one to live it!

Thankfully, our parents raised us on some damn good music from the good ol' days, and I'm glad to say that genre (60's and 70's) is the majority of the music that my husband and I listen to. (Don't get me wrong, I can still boogie to some pop/house music) But be it Classic Rock, Folk, Country (old country), Rock n' Roll, Blues, R & B, Bluegrass, or even some bubble-gum music...we plan to keep the good vibes rollin' with our children. ~~Speaking of which, our first-born is due July, 14th 2010~~

I've toyed with the idea of starting a blog for awhile now, watching friends document their lives through words, pictures, or the occasional video~but I've just sat back and watched. It took some convincing, but I've been able to secure my husband Patrick as a "guest-blogger" once a week! I hope you find him as funny, smart, clever and articulate as I do.

So! Welcome to our River.
