when we were young…

writing with passion, living with vision and acting with intention



I like to write to sort my thoughts out which is why I started my blog, mootable. I haven’t given much thought to a journal type blog that details my day to day meanderings and what’s going down in my house with two boys literally under two! Until today when I read a friend’s blog and thought about what a treasure it will be for her to look back on days past as a mom to two little girls and wife to her husband. There is so much each day that is worth remembering but where many memories fade, words bring back the days when we were young.

So with that, I dedicate this blog to the stories and memories of my days with my boys. Amidst the craziness of keeping up with it all, I hold these days close to my heart in a way that grows a lump in my throat when they will be past.

To the tales of joy, frustration, inspiration, boredom, triumphs, struggles, the exciting and the mundane.

A stay at home mom of two boys under two, love TED talks, swing dancing and of course, writing. When we were young is my sharing of motherhood, the beautiful, the ugly, the happy, the sad and the world my boys are growing up in.

  1. ….” joy, frustration, inspiration, boredom, triumphs, struggles, the exciting and the mundane.” Well said Virginia. This thing you know to be so true, and true for all of us who walk the road. Glad to see you focus on the here and now, it’s really all we have and all we can really do toward the future. The modern world seems so preoccupied with goals, plans, forecasts and directions, but all we can really deal with is today. So make the best of the moment and live it well and let God take care of tomorrow. The steps we take today will lead to the future. Is that too simple? -gb
